annual report

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - Koblenz-based CompuGROUP Holding AG today published the full Annual Report 2009. As an innovator and early mover when it comes to technology, CompuGROUP has now eliminated the printed paper version and instead provides an interactive version of the report available online on the website http://report.compugroup.com/english. This move saves costs, saves the environment and provides for enhanced information content with easier access and rapid navigation.

For the first time, investors are now able to track the results and the strategy pursued by CompuGROUP Holding AG over the Internet. The online business report offers users a number of benefits. For example, it is possible to select individual Excel tables from the business report and use them directly in your own calculations. With each click of the mouse, the requested information - for example the different sites in 18 countries - may be retrieved in a systematic way. Moreover, investors are able to `get to know´ chief executive Frank Gotthardt on a personal level. The CEO and company founder talks about his strategy for success and his future plans in a short video to elaborate on the key points in his address to the shareholders.

"We have spent the last 20 years to help doctors, dentists and hospitals move from paper-based patient records to electronic medical records, and in that process greatly enhanced the value of information" states CEO Frank Gotthardt. "It is only natural that we will be one of the first companies to adopt the same paperless philosophy when we share information with our shareholders and others who are interested in CompuGROUP."

The content of the Annual Report 2009 follows the audited financial report that was already published on March 16th this year. Even in 2009, the year of the financial crisis - CompuGROUP managed to expand its international business operations, to intensify customer loyalty and achieve record sales in a value of almost 300 million euros (294.2). Earnings before taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were just under 60 million euros (59.1). In the last six years CompuGROUP has grown by an average of 27% a year, driven by a consistent focus on the health market and a strategy to combine IT-supported workflow optimization for doctors and hospitals with the networking of all stakeholders in healthcare. For 2010, CompuGROUP expects sales revenue of between 315 and 330 million euros and operating profit (EBITDA) between 67 and 73 million euros.
