o EBITDA more than doubles to around EUR 2.0 million

Martinsried, March 31, 2008 – SHS VIVEON AG, Europe's leading provider of
customer management solutions, was able to further expand its growth in
fiscal year. The company recorded an increase in total output of around 33%
to EUR 56.5 million (previous year: EUR 42.6 million) in the fiscal year
2007. Compared with the previous year, the core business – consulting and
software solutions for customer value and customer risk management –
increased by a total of 9% to EUR 40.3 million (previous year: EUR 36.8
million). Total output in the German-speaking region was up pleasing 16%
from EUR 19.1 million to EUR 22.1 million. The Spanish subsidiary SHS Polar
increased its total output by around 46% to EUR 34.3 million. Whereas core
business remained stable in Spain, in particular the non-strategic hardware
business totaling EUR 16.2 million made an above average contribution to
this growth.

The group's profitability enjoyed highly pleasing growth. EBITDA from
ongoing operations more than doubled, increasing from EUR 0.8 million to
EUR 2.0 million. Taking the other operating income of EUR 1.1 million from
the sale of the Interactive division into account, EBITDA totaled EUR 3.1
million; almost triple the previous year's result.

After a pre-tax loss last fiscal year in the amount of EUR 3.1 million, SHS
VIVEON Group recorded pre-tax profits of around EUR 0.1 million in fiscal
year 2007. These results include depreciations, in particular for goodwill
and intangible assets, totaling EUR 3.9 million. The successful redemption
of the IKB loan led to a positive extraordinary effect of EUR 3.0 million.
Taking the results from discontinued operations into account, the
consulting and software company recorded consolidated net income of EUR 0.9
million for the first time since fiscal year 2000. Last year the net loss
totaled EUR -2.2 million. This results in positive earnings per share of
EUR 0.06 (previous year: EUR -0.17).

On the balance sheet date, SHS VIVEON Group had very solid capitalization;
its equity ratio lifted from 47% in the previous year to 56%. The group's
net debt also fell from EUR 4.5 million to EUR 2.7 million.

SHS VIVEON AG's CEO, Dirk Roesing, is very pleased with the group's 2007
results: 'Our successfully concluded restructuring program has
significantly increased our earnings strength in our core business. Our
high-performance product range and our reinforced sales activities mean
that we are very confident that we will be able to further increase
revenues and earnings still further in 2008.'
