Sales development was especially favourable in the company's most important business field, i.e. software licences in the 'Staff Efficiency Management (SEM)' segment. As a result of this positive business development, the company clearly exceeded its sales targets and reports results in line with expectations which were issued in November 2000. Now, according to provisional data, the company has achieved a renewed sales record with a total of DM 42.1 m for the overall year of 2000. The result before taxes amounted to DM 0.54 m. The result after taxes of DM -0.1 m was in line with expectations issued in November 2000. Due to positive results of the parent company, deferred taxes had to be accounted for according to US- GAAP. Such deferred taxes weighed on the result before taxes, yet did not lead to taxes actual payable by companies of the group. The high level of acceptance within the market for ATOSS products in the area of 'Staff Efficiency Management (SEM)' resulted in December to one of the largest monthly figure for sales in the history of the company. In comparison to December of the previous year, sales increased by 88% to reach a total of DM 5.4m. Orders from Deutsche Bahn AG, Crossair and Phoenix Contact played a large role in accounting for these sales. Total software sales in the fourth quarter amounted to DM 4.6 m and thus increased by 34 % compared to the fourth quarter of 1999. Given the already strong start for sales in the year 2001, as well as due to the new products ATOSS Start-Up-Edition and its enhanced product strategy in the area of 'Staff Efficiency Management (SEM)', ATOSS Software AG expects continued strong growth in sales as well as substantial increases in results. The business report and accounts for the financial year 2000 will be published on March 29, 2001.
