quarterly report

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - May 4, 2011: CompuGroup Medical AG today presented the financial report for the first quarter of 2011. The company, one of the leading global providers of eHealth solutions, achieved revenue of EUR 90.3 million, an increase of 30 percent compared to the same period in 2010. Operating profit (EBITDA) came in at EUR 14.0 million, up from EUR 12.6 million in the first quarter last year. Cash net income increased 8 percent from EUR 7.5 million in the first quarter 2010 to EUR 8.1 million in the first quarter 2011.

With this result, CompuGroup Medical AG continues its strategy and growth based on the greatest coverage among healthcare providers (physicians, dentists, hospitals etc.) worldwide. The strong 17 percent organic growth in the HCS (Health Connectivity Services) business segment is a solid rebound from last year based on CGM´s unique products and services to facilitate networking between various healthcare participants. Newly acquired companies drive revenue growth in the HPS (Health Provider Services) business segment up to 33 percent of which 5 percent is organic growth. A challenging start to 2011 in the US is due to lower than expected efficiency in acquired companies, and this leads to a decline in operating margin which went from 18 percent during the first quarter of 2010 to 15 percent in the same period this year.

Frank Gotthardt, Chairman of the Board of CompuGroup Medical AG, stated: "We are certainly excited about the solid performance in European markets and especially pleased with the rebound in HCS revenue. With the consolidation and restructuring of the US business now about to be completed we are confident to bring CompuGroup Medical to a new level of growth and profitability in the second half of 2011."

CompuGroup Medical adjusts the full year 2011 guidance to reflect the development in the US. Group revenue is expected to be in the range of EUR 385 million to EUR 410 million and operating income (EBITDA) is expected to be in the range of EUR 81 million to EUR 88 million.
