The SoftM Software und Beratung AG (ISIN: DE0007249104), Munich, was able to achieve revenues of 53.5million Euro in the first nine months of 2005 (previous year 60.4); revenues in the third quarter came to 17.9 million Euro (previous year 20.5). The standard software business increased markedly  after nine months to 11.5 million Euro(previous year 9.9); quarterly revenue rose to 4.2 million Euro (previous year 3.1). Revenues in the consulting unit for the third quarter amounted to 5.0 million Euro (previous year 5.4) and nine month revenues were 15.8 million Euro (previous year 16.7). As was the case for the first two quarters, revenues for systems integration business unit ? caused to a significant part by price cuts for IBM server and storage systems - continued to lag after nine months and came to 26.2 million Euro which was clearly under the previous year level of 33.8 million Euro. Revenues here in the third quarter came to 8.7 million Euro (previous year 12.3).

Operating result before taxes, interest and deductions and amortization  (EBITDA) came to 1.6 million Euro (previous year 1.6). After nine months the EBITDA came to 3.5 million Euro (previous year 4.3). The result of common business activity (EBT) improved in the third quarter to 0.4 million Euro (previous year 0.1). The nine month EBT rose to 0.2 million Euro (previous year ?0.4). Annual net income rose significantly as well when compared to the previous year. The third quarter generated a surplus of 0.2 million Euro (previous year ?0.2), the nine month surplus was -0.1 million Euro (previous year ?0.8). Annual Group result per share as of September 30, 2005 was 0.01 (previous year ?0.16). Operating cash flow for the first nine months came to 10.3 million Euro (previous year 8.5).

Market conditions in the third quarter of 2005 have not changed in relation to the previous six months. Willingness to invest among small and medium-sized companies remains restrained. Business in the field of systems integration is significantly below expectations. Therefore by means of fusion in the systems integration sector, conditions have been improved to utilize synergies and better serve the increasing demand for highly-specialized IT infrastructure solutions. Due to the course business conditions which have prevailed up until now, especially the weak first quarter which could not be fully compensated for, the Board is expecting, at a significantly lower level of revenues of 77 million Euro (previous year 87.5) an increase of  EBT to 1.7 million Euro (previous year 1.1).
