For the Munich-based Data Modul AG, the European market leader in the field of

display technology, the first quarter of 2012 proved to be a good start into
the new fiscal year for Data Modul.

Compared to the same quarter of the previous year, revenue increased to 35.8
million euros. There was also a positive trend in the volume of orders, with an
increase of 10.4% over the first quarter of last year to 45.8 million euros.
The continued positive mood in Germany, our main market, as well as the upward
trend at our successful foreign subsidiaries determined this development.
Thus, we have achieved our most important goal of delivering consistently
positive results. EBIT for the first quarter of the current year is 2.1 million
euros (2011: 2.1 million euros). In the first quarter, net income increased by
7.1% to 1.5 million euros, translating to earnings per share of 0.43 euros
(based on a total number of shares of 3,518,602) (2011: 0.39 euros).
