Koblenz (euro adhoc) - Coblenz, 19th June 2007  -  Today,  CompuGROUP issued its  guidance  for

@@start.t2@@revenue and profitability for the year 2007. The Executive  Board  expects
         for the full 2007 revenue and EBITDA to grow about 40 pc and a growth rate
         of about 50 pc for "Cash Net Income". Shareholders acquiring shares at the
         recent  public    offering    have    predominantly    looked    at    measuring
         profitability by Cash Net Income which is net income plus amortization  of
         intangibles resulting from the acquisition of companies.

         CompuGROUP issues this guidance at  its  annual  shareholders  meeting  in
         Frankfurt today. CompuGROUP went to the public market in early May selling
         shares at EUR 18 per  share.  Today,  at  its  first  annual  shareholders
         meeting after being listed in the Prime Standard of  the  Frankfurt  stock
         exchange, CompuGROUP institutes the policy to issue  guidance  on  revenue
         and profitability for the year.

         Main growth
         CompuGROUP expects 25 percentage points of the growth rate for the  profit
         to be  achieved  with  its  traditional  products  doctors'  software  and
         communication services between  doctors  and  other  participants  of  the
         health sector and 15 percentage points to  result  from  the  new  product
         software for hospitals.

         The growth rate translates into sales of about EUR 190-200 million, EBITDA
         of about 55 million and Cash Net Income of about 37 million.

         CompuGROUP  is  the  European  market  leader  in  software  for  doctors'
         practices and also provides communication services for the health  sector,
