MEDION AG: Ad hoc notification pursuant to Section 15 German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)

MEDION has successfully completed business  year  2007,  while   increasing  both revenue and profits.

Based upon  preliminary  unaudited  figures,  the  MEDION  group   increased  its revenue by 3.3% to EUR 1,658 million in fiscal year 2007.

MEDION was able to strengthen its  market  position  in  2007  in   the  relevant sectors of Desktop-PCs/Notebooks, mobile navigation devices,  and  entertainment electronics. This can be attributed to successful  product  innovations  and  in particular to the new MEDIONlife design line introduced  in  Q4  2007  with  its high quality, design-oriented products.

Thanks to the streamlining of the product  mix,  the  structural   measures  that were undertaken, and the expansion of MEDION's range of  services,  the  group's earnings improved.  Overall,  the   Management  Board  presumes  that  2007  will produce a positive EBIT of approximately  EUR 28  million  (approximately  1.7% of revenue), which is higher than the previous projection.

In the past fiscal year, MEDION  has  therefore  already  clearly   exceeded  the original revenue and profit goals set for 2007 and 2008.

The Management  Board  expects  the  stable  trend  to  continue  in 2008,  and therefore  anticipates  revenue  growth  in  the  order   of  3  to  5%,  despite structurally-related  price  deterioration   and  a  continued  weak  dollar/euro relationship. The operating EBIT margin is expected to improve even  more  to  a level of approximately 2 to 2.5%.
