o Core business grows by 20% in the first quarter
o Positive net income of 2.3 million EUR

Martinsried, May 16, 2007. SHS VIVEON AG continued its growth trend in the
first quarter of 2007. The group increased its overall output of 11.2
million EUR in the previous year to 13.1 million EUR with an increase of
about 17%. The overall output in the core business software solutions and
consulting services in the field of customer risk and customer value
management arose from 8.8 million EUR up by around 20% to 10.5 million EUR.
In the non-strategic area of hardware sales the output accounts for 2.6
million EUR compared to 2.4 million EUR in the previous year. The EBITDA of
0.5 million EUR approximates the level of the previous year. This is due to
investments in the build up of internal and external staff to cover the
targeted sales growth.

The financial result of 2.7 million EUR clearly rose above the previous
year figure of -0.2 million EUR. The positive one-off effect of 3 million
EUR in the first quarter in 2007 primarily triggered this effect and can be
attributed to the redemption of a loan at the Spanish affiliate SHS Polar.
Thus earnings before taxes (EBT) were 2.6 million EUR compared to -0.5
million EUR in the period of the previous year. In the first quarter of
2007 SHS VIVEON AG accounts for a net profit amounting to 2.3 million EUR
(previous year: -0.5 million EUR). This sums up to positive earnings of
0.17 EUR per share (previous year: -0.05 EUR per share). The balance sheet
structure improved at the same time: the equity ratio of 53% on 31 March
2007 exceeded the comparative value of 47% on 31 December 2006.

'We’re striving at further growth' says CEO Dirk Roesing and adds that 'our
broadened product portfolio opens up cross selling potentials - especially
with our existing customer base. We intend to intensively utilise that this
year. We also have enormous chances in the acquisition of new customers
which we should be able to perceive even better given our new organization
