Martinsried, July 24, 2007 - SHS VIVEON has entered into a new strategic
alliance with the Czech company Hypoworld. This strategic alliance aims to
jointly develop and operate a state-of-the-art online platform for real
estate credit brokers for the Czech market. SHS VIVEON won the selection
process for a customer risk management partner with the latest generation
GUARDEAN Risk Suite 5. SHS VIVEON will participate in the success of the
online brokerage as Hypoworld's business partner.
The Czech company Hypoworld A.S. is a service provider for real estate
credit brokers, and aims to become the market leader in Central Eastern
Europe. The company plans to achieve this ambitious target by combining
competent and independent advice from real estate financing specialists
with the advantages offered by the Internet. Hypoworld has decided to
cooperate with the customer risk management specialist SHS VIVEON for this
project. The two companies will jointly establish and operate one of
Europe's most modern service platforms for real estate credit brokerage.
After a comprehensive selection process at Hypoworld, SHS VIVEON succeeded
in winning out against a large number of European competitors.
As part of this strategic alliance, Hypoworld has engaged SHS VIVEON to
equip the real estate credit brokerage platform with customer risk
solutions. SHS VIVEON will provide application management as an ASP
solution in its data center. The platform's state-of-the-art, fully
automated application review system is based on the latest generation of
GUARDEAN Risk Suite 5. External credit agencies and data pools will be
linked via the middleware GUARDEAN Gateway.
'The key factor behind our decision to go with SHS VIVEON as our new
business partner was its flexibility and its software solution,' commented
Milan Rocek, the founder and majority owner of Hypoworld, on the strategic
alliance. 'No other provider was able to supply a comparable package of
'This strategic alliance will open up new markets in Eastern Europe for
us,' commented Dirk Roesing, SHS VIVEON AG's CEO, on the partnership with
Hypoworld. 'Growth rates for financial services markets in Eastern Europe
are enormous. For example, the Czech market for real estate financing grew
by 40% in 2006 alone.'

SHS VIVEON AG's new GUARDEAN Risk Suite 5 and the opportunities to link
this in with GUARDEAN process solutions (GUARDEAN DebitTEX, GUARDEAN
Application Manager Finance) and special products (GUARDEAN Gateway,
GUARDEAN Annual Accounts Analyzer, GUARDEAN Credit Quality Index)

problems. The modules available, such as the Visual Workflow Designer, the
