Berlin, April 30, 2003 - The streamlining measures initiated last year at InfoGenie Europe AG (SIN 747 206) are beginning to bear fruit. In fiscal 2002 work procedures were optimized, the workforce was reduced to a core team and further cuts were imposed on spending. As a result, the company’s cash burn rate was lowered by 76.8%, to EUR 1.8 million. The operating result improved by 15.3% and revenues climbed by 7.8%, bucking the generally poor trend in the industry as a whole. Board member Thomas Dehler now believes it will be possible to reach break-even point in the first semester of 2003.

In presenting its annual financial statements, InfoGenie also took
additional risks off its balance sheet. For instance, the
amortization of goodwill came to EUR 1,288 k. While this depleted the
company’s balance-sheet equity by the end of the year, the capital
measures agreed last year have meanwhile been effectively entered in
the Commercial Register; as a result, raising the company’s common
stock by EUR 7.25 million, to EUR 8,308,947. These capital measures
are primarily backed by strategic investor ebs Holding AG, which now
holds over 90.9 per cent of the company’s shares. InfoGenie is now
making every effort to have the new shares listed for trading on the
stock market.
