Total revenues amounted to 17.8 million Euro (previous year 16.6), an increase of 1.2 million Euro or 7 % compared to the same quarter last year. In spite of the considerable one-time marketing outlays related to the announcement of the new ERP software Greenax the EBITDA rose by 0.3 million Euro to 0.4 million Euro (previous year ?0.9) and the EBT increased by 0.2 million Euro to -0.7 Euro (previous year ?0.9). In comparison to the same quarter of the previous year, the consolidated group was expanded by the takeover of the Solitas Informatik AG.

The standard software sector came to 4.2 million Euro (previous year 3.5) a clear increase of 20% compared to the previous year. The Solitas Informatik AG, which was taken over in the Summer of 2005, played a significant role in the attainment of the high quarterly revenues in this unit. Consulting revenues came to 5.2 million Euro in the first three months of the business year thereby almost reaching the previous year's level (previous year 5.4) The business unit system integration rose in the first quarter by 9% to  8.4 million Euro (previous year 7.7).

The operating result before taxes, interest and depreciations (EBITDA) was  0.4 million Euro, which exceeded the result by 0.3 million of the previous year (previous year 0.1). The result of normal business activities EBT improved in the first quarter to ?0.7 million Euro (previous year ?0.9). The quarterly surplus came to ?0.4 million Euro (previous year ?0.6). Result per share amounted to ?0.09 (previous year ?0.12). SoftM showed an operating cash flow from normal business activities in the first quarter of 6.4 million Euro (previous year. 11.9).

The Board continues to assume that the orders situation for 2006 will improve slightly and is predicting planned revenues of 82 million Euro. Due to the costs associated with the introduction of the new Greenax product which cannot be compensated for by corresponding revenues in 2006, it is expected that results before taxes (EBT) will be at approximately the same level as in the previous year (2,1 million Euro).
