quaterly report


First half year of 2007 demonstrates consistent implementation of strategy and the integration of most recent acquisitions

July 31, 2007 - Vienna. The S&T Group realised their strategic goals of massively expanding the consulting and solutions business, as well as the Managed Services division in the first half year of 2007 consistently and successfully. Total sales grew in the first half of 2007 11% as compared to the first half of 2006 to 228.7 Mil. Euro. The consulting and solutions business grew 39% to 63.2 Mil. Euro. The Managed Services division generated revenue growth of 13% at 39.4 Mil. Euro for the company thereby delivering results far above market growth. The Enterprise Systems business division developed steadily at 126.1 Mil. Euro (+0.5%). EBIT was at 3.6 Mil. Euro at the half-year point and EBITDA at 7.1 Mil. Euro.

In the first half of 2007 the S&T Group further developed based on a consistent implementation of their strategic goals. The revenue distribution between the three core divisions of the business also fulfilled the plans of the company. S&T is therefore well on its way toward achieving the goal of generating 60% of total sales with Business Solutions and Managed Services. Sales of these two divisions already constitutes 45% of total sales.

Investments: About 2 Mil. Euro for Integration and Restructuring

The intensive growth and associated investments and increasing orientation of the company toward consulting and solutions business, as well as the corresponding restructuring costs naturally impact EBIT that reached 3.6 Mil. Euro in the first half of 2007. The integration and restructuring did require intensive management attention and about 2 Mil. Euro of investments.

Outlook 2007 remains Valid

S&T´s expectation for business year 2007 remains unchanged forecasting sales of over 500 Mil. Euro. The company is producing some large contracts in the second and third quarters with other agreements in preparation or implementation phases. All of which should produce positive results in the second half of the year.
