6-month report


Koblenz (euro adhoc) - August 9th, 2012: CompuGroup Medical AG today presented
the financial report for the second quarter of 2012. The company, one of the
leading global providers of eHealth solutions, achieved revenue of EUR 111.3
million compared to EUR 87.8 million in the second quarter 2011. This represents
an increase of 27 percent of which 8 percent is organic growth.

With this solid result CompuGroup Medical AG continues the successful start to
the year in the second quarter. Operating profit (EBITDA) came in at EUR 25.9
million, compared to EUR 10.4 million in the same period of 2011. The
corresponding operating margin improved by 11 percentage points to 23 percent,
driven by successful integration and efficiency improvements in companies
acquired as well as special effects in the second quarter last year. The most
pronounced positive effect comes from the US business that continued its
positive trend from the first quarter and delivered a second quarter with 16
percent year-on-year organic revenue growth and 15 percent EBITDA-margin.

In the HPS (Health Provider Services) business segments, revenue was EUR 95.0
million compared to EUR 71.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. This
represents an increase of 32 percent of which 9 percent is organic growth. The
HCS (Health Connectivity Services) business segment had a flat year-on-year
development with 1 percent organic growth and revenue of EUR 16.0 million in
the second quarter 2012.

Frank Gotthardt, Chairman of the Board of CompuGroup Medical AG, stated: "We
continued the positive 2012 development in the second quarter with solid
organic growth and a forceful rebound in margins compared to last year. Our
progress in Health Provider Services is broad-based, from most competitive
hospital information systems in Poland, to the leading position in EMR and PM
systems in Germany and to cutting edge electronic health records for ambulatory
doctors in the US. Our products manifest our vision of software solutions
supporting healthcare providers and other stakeholders for more efficiency and
better health.  As always, our business is based on unrelenting growth and a
strong focus on operational efficiency as we continue our journey towards
becoming a truly global company."

In view of the positive development in the first half year of 2012, CGM narrows
the outlook to the upper range of the guidance and is now expecting group
revenue to be in the range of EUR 450 million to EUR 460 million and group
operating income (EBITDA) to be in the range of EUR 100 million to EUR 105
million.
