Despite rather modest overall developments of the global markets, DATA MODUL
expects revenues for the current year to remain at previous year's level. 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 USA
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.

Our shareholders will also benefit from DATA MODUL's bright future, as the
current development of our business and encouragement from analysts and
investors alike clearly indicates potential for our market capitalization.
