Koblenz - August 14th 2007:  The CompuGROUP Holding AG, a leading European provider of eHealth-solutions,  today  made  known  the   group's  business figures for the first half of 2007 according to IFRS.  Compared  with  the same period of the previous year, all relevant financial and customer  key figures show a strong rate of growth.

Apart from the strong rate of growth, in particular due  to  the   segments HPS (Health Provider Services), which revealed an  increase of  44.3  per cent and HCS (Health Connectivity Services) with an increase of ca. 22 per cent, the financial figures are shaped above all by the latest  successful acquisitions of TEPE and systema.

The pre-tax result (EBT) was able to be increased by  more  than 50 % to approx. EUR 12.1 million (previous year: EUR 8.0 million).

It was also possible to more than double the Cash Net Income from EUR 10.9 million in the previous year to EUR 24.3 million in this. The cash  result per share was EUR 0.51 compared with EUR 0.24 in the same  period  of  the previous year.
