o Output at previous year's level
o EBITDA falls to EUR 0.17 million due to weak economy
o No change in situation of Spanish subsidiary

Martinsried, Germany, 14 May 2009 - SHS VIVEON AG, Europe's leading
supplier of customer management solutions, has made a satisfactory start in
financial year 2009 in view of the difficult economic conditions. In the
first quarter, output from the continued operations of the SHS VIVEON Group
stood at EUR 6.4 million, the same level as in the previous year. At EUR
0.17 million EBITDA was down on the previous year's level of EUR 0.43
million. This is mainly because of a decline in the utilisation of staff
capacities in comparison with the first quarter of 2008. The difficult
economic situation made its effects felt here. After write-downs of EUR
0.15 million (EUR 0.33 in the previous year), the SHS VIVEON Group posted
an EBIT of EUR 25 thousand in the first quarter of 2009, which is only
slightly below the previous year's figure of EUR 93 thousand. The financial
result in the first quarter of 2009 stood at
EUR -0.21 million (EUR -0.18 million in the previous year). After tax, the
SHS VIVEON Group in the first quarter of 2009 posted a result of EUR -0.16
million in its continuing operations, as compared with EUR -0.99 million in
the first quarter of 2008.

Including the SHS VIVEON Group's discontinued operations, the result for
the first quarter of 2009 amounts to EUR -0.68 million in comparison with
EUR -0.18 million in the equivalent period of 2008. As in previous periods,
this marked decline is due to the difficult earnings situation of our
Spanish subsidiary, SHS Polar.

Earnings (loss) per share (undiluted) in the first quarter of 2009 totalled
EUR -0.20, as far as the continuing operations of the SHS VIVEON Group are
concerned (EUR -0.12 in the same quarter of the previous year).

After the successful conclusion of the recapitalisation measures initiated
in 2008, the equity ratio of the SHS VIVEON Group at 31 December 2009 had
risen from 33 percent to 41 percent. Cash holdings at 31 March 2009 stood
at EUR 3,593 thousand as compared with EUR 1,622 thousand at 31 December
2008, a significantly higher figure than at the end of 2008. This is mainly
because of the cash inflow of around EUR 3.3 million as a result of the
placement of convertible bond 2009 in the middle of March.

'In view of the extremely difficult economic conditions, we are satisfied
with the development of our results for the first quarter of 2009,' says
Dirk Roesing, CEO of SHS VIVEON AG. 'Nevertheless, we have lost no time in
taking measures to improve the utilisation of our staff capacities and to
optimise our cost structure. In Spain, we are working under full speed to
find a solution to the very difficult situation.'
