@@start.t2@@CompuGROUP Takes Pole Position in Austria:
         Acquisition of Shares in Gruber ÄDV and Takeover of ACP IT Solutions

         Koblenz/Enns (Germany) - November 12,  2007:    CompuGROUP  Holding  AG,  a
         leading European provider of eHealth solutions, reports the  expansion  of
         its  presence  in  the  growing  Austrian  healthcare  field:    With    the
         acquisition of the majority of shares in Gruber ÄDV GmbH  (Enns)  and  the
         takeover of ACP IT Solutions GmbH (both suppliers of  information  systems
         for doctors), CompuGROUP strengthens its position in this  market  segment
         significantly. Thus CompuGROUP is now  represented  in  Austria  via  four
         companies,  together  with  systema  Human  Information  Systems  GmbH,  a
         provider  of  information  systems    for    hospitals,    and    HCS    Health
         Communication Service GmbH.

         Meanwhile, ACP IT Solutions GmbH has been renamed medXpert GmbH. With  its
         Profimed and medXpert products, ACP looks back on a success story of  more
         than 20 years during which the company supported doctors  in  governmental
         healthcare. ACP's complete integration with CompuGROUP under  a  new  name
         constitutes an excellent basis for meeting the challenges of the  Austrian
         healthcare  system  with  its  comprehensive    portfolio    of    successful
         networking products and services. Now medXPert  can  offer  its  customers
         their optimal integration in a  continuous  information  workflow  ranging
         from the healthcare system's doctor to the clinic and vice versa.

         For more than 30 years, Gruber ÄDV has been  a  reliable  partner  in  the
         field of  medical  services  with  its  premium  products.  The  company's
         management will remain in the capable hands of Wolfgang Gruber, while
         Joachim  Gruber  will  continue  to  manage    the    software    development
         department. The company accompanies the current changes  in  the  Austrian
         healthcare system with its  customized,  high-quality  software-solutions.
         Particularly  the  Austrian  private  doctors'    increasing    demand    for
         information systems for doctors  is  perfectly  met  with  the  respective
         innovative products.

         "The partnership with CompuGROUP creates completely new  perspectives  for
         our company. Our integration with  the  networking  strategy  of  Europe's
         leading full service provider of eHealth solutions, based on  a  versatile
         product portfolio, gives us the power  to  continue  writing  our  success
         story," emphasizes Wolfgang Gruber, CEO of ÄDV.

         "I am absolutely convinced that we have  made  a  strong  entry  into  the
         Austrian market for information systems for doctors with this step. As  in
         any other country in which we operate, a strong presence when dealing with
         doctors in Austrian  governmental  healthcare  is  the  fundament  of  all
         further successes.  With  their  highly  motivated  teams  and  innovative
         products, Gruber ÄDV and medXPert are optimally  positioned  to  meet  the
         changes in Austria's healthcare system," underlines  Uwe  Eibich,  one  of
         CompuGROUP's directors.
