Koblenz (euro adhoc) - PRESS RELEASE

@@start.t2@@CompuGROUP strengthens its involvement in the growth markets of eastern
         and south-eastern Europe

         Coblenz/Vienna - 19th October 2007: CompuGROUP Holding AG, a leading
         European provider of E-health solutions, is expanding its business in
         further growth markets: in order to establish an effective unit for
         penetration of the E-health markets in Austria, Switzerland, Hungary,
         Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and
         Greece, CompuGROUP CEE has been formed, which will be based in Vienna. The
         new company will function as a complete E-health supplier, offering
         innovative software products to all those involved in healthcare, and will
         be run by its two managing directors - Willibald Salomon and Hannes
         Reichl.

         The health care systems in eastern and south-eastern Europe are currently
         undergoing great change. Both in the most recent new EU member states of
         Romania and Bulgaria as well as in potential EU candidate states such as
         Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia, structures for nationwide care are
         beginning to develop in the healthcare economy. CompuGROUP views the
         action of supporting these new healthcare systems from the outset with
         efficiency-enhancing E-health solutions as representing a logical step,
         through which the best possible standard of medical care can be made
         available to a broad section of the population.

         As far as product policy in concerned, CompuGROUP CEE has initially
         allocated top priority to the comprehensive introduction of electronic
         patient medical records within its area of operation. Furthermore, with
         respect to the product and service portfolio as well as particularly
         concerning the networking strategy, the company will utilise the synergies
         in various ways that result from its relationship to the parent company
         CompuGROUP Holding AG.

         "At the  heart  of  the  CompuGROUP  vision  lies  the  networking  at  an
         international level of all those involved in healthcare. With the  aid  of
         high performance IT systems, the process of integrating all sectors within
         healthcare is greatly simplified. The broad product portfolio, as well  as
         the immense pool of expertise that exists within CompuGROUP, enable us  to
         address the full spectrum within the healthcare  system.  This  simplifies
         market entry into eastern European countries , where, in parallel  to  the
         implementation  of  IT  solutions  for  health  professionals,  networking
         projects are also initiated," explains managing director Hannes Reichl.

         "Providing young or newly emerging  healthcare  systems  with  appropriate
         electronic tools from the  outset,  in  order  to  be  able  to  build  up
         structures for a lastingly affordable  system  of  medical  care  that  is
         accessible to everyone, represents both a challenge and a mission to us. I
         firmly believe that the new company CompuGROUP CEE will spiritedly succeed
         in fully tapping the attractive market potential  in  eastern  and  south-
         eastern Europe, and thus write its own success  story,"  emphasises  Frank
         Gotthardt, Chairman of CompuGROUP Holding AG.
