o Output up 34% to EUR 41.9 million after nine months
o Strong 79% growth in EBITDA

Martinsried, November 13, 2007 – SHS VIVEON AG has continued its on-track
growth in the first nine months of fiscal year 2007. Compared to the first
nine months of 2006, the company increased its output by 34% to EUR 41.9
million (previous year: EUR 31.2 million). The output in its core business
of consulting and software solutions for customer value and customer risk
management was up to EUR 29.6 million, or 9.4% compared to the first three
quarters of 2006. The 16.5% growth rate in the German-speaking region was
particularly pleasing. Business in Spain also contributed to the group's
growth. Although the core business in Spain only grew moderately due to the
highly competitive environment, hardware sales, which are not part of the
group's core business, tripled from EUR 4.2 million to EUR 12.3 million.

EBITDA from continued operations also enjoyed substantial growth. The
consulting and software company recorded earnings of EUR 1.5 million in the
first nine months of 2007 – thus up 79% compared to the same period of the
previous year (EUR 0.9 million). EBT increased to around EUR 2.1 million
(previous year: EUR -2.1 million). This includes, as was also the case in
H1 2007, a positive extraordinary effect from the reversal of the IKB loan,
which brought the financial result to around EUR 2.2 million. SHS VIVEON AG
recorded net income (profit) of EUR 1.5 million in the first nine months
(previous year: EUR -1.4 million). This corresponds to earnings per share
of EUR 0.11 (previous year: EUR -0.11) from continued operations. If the
earnings from discontinued operations (from the sale of the 'Interactive'
division) are also taken into account, profits after the first nine months
lifted to EUR 2.6 million or EUR 0.18 per share. These positive earnings
have bolstered the group's equity ratio, taking it from 47% at the end of
fiscal year 2006 to a new total of 54%, and it thus has a substantially
stronger balance sheet structure.

Dirk Roesing, SHS VIVEON AG's CEO is very pleased with the growth in
earnings during the first nine months: 'We have both expanded our operating
business and once again improved our cost structure. We plan to build on
these foundations and further improve the group's profitability. We are
thus looking to the new fiscal year with great confidence!'
