The S&T Group plans to double its business by 2010 and to generate more than 60% of sales in IT consulting and solutions. The 2007 3rd quarter results bring the Group significantly closer to this strategic aim. Already almost half of the Q3 sales (49.3%) come from Business Solutions and Managed Services. The sales in Business Solutions alone doubled in the 3rd quarter of 2007 to EUR39.4 million. The Managed Services area also made significant gains. With large outsourcing contracts, S&T achieved an increase in sales of 12.2 % with EUR21.2 million in the 3rd quarter. The sales in infrastructure business stood at EUR62.3 million in the 3rd quarter 2007, EBITDA rose by 50.5% compared to the previous year to EUR4.4 million and EBIT rose by 62.3% to EUR2.4 million.

EBITDA for the first nine months of 2007 amounted to 11.4 million euros (-3.0%), matching the year-earlier level.
