The board of directors increases its prognosis for the business year 2007

Munich - 30 May 2007

EquityStory AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) started the business year 2007 very successfully. In the first three months of 2007, the company realised sales of EUR 2.000 million. This corresponds with an increase of 72 percent over the first quarter of the previous year. According to HGB, EBIT before amortization amounted to EUR .633 million, with the EBIT amounting to EUR .554 million.

EquityStory AG is striving for the preparation of the annual report 2007 according to the international financial reporting standards (IFRS). This simplifies the comparison of the results with other listed companies. The following key figures result from the balancing according to IFRS:

EBIT: EUR .634 million

Group profit: EUR .425 million

Result per share according to DVFA/SG: EUR 0.36

Above all, three factors are decisive for the good business development. First is the continued strong new customer business. In the months January to March, again 60 new customers could be won. Second is the turnover expansion based on new products in the area of notification requirement, which offers solutions for the compliance with the new laws from the Transparency Guideline Implementation Act. Third is the strong growth in the segment distribution & media.

The remaining loss carried forward has already been completely raised in the first three months. For the first time, EUR .171 million taxes on income accrued.

The board of directors increases its prognosis for the business year 2007

Based on the excellent development which has also continued in the months of April and May, the board of directors is increasing its prognosis for the entire year 2007. Henceforth we are counting on an increase in the turnover from organic growth of at least 40 percent. The EBIT will increase over-proportionally to the turnover revenue.

The board of directors will comment on the business results as of 3:00 p.m. (MET) in the telephone conference today. This will be transmitted live in the internet at www.equitystory.de.
