For 2012, Data Modul expects distinctly positive earnings and an increase in
revenue. We are very well positioned and are largely independent of individual
markets and therefore able to compensate for any market volatility. The upturn
in the U.S.A. and Germany, our most important markets, will be the driver for
our business, compensating for the difficult business environment in southern
Europe. Data Modul will continue to grow its R&D activities in 2012 and will
prepare its production and logistics center in Weikersheim for future growth.
Even though these investments may have a short-term impact on our earnings, we
have laid the groundwork for our future success.

Munich, August 9, 2012
