    Kahl/Main (ots Ad hoc-Service) - Following a Record Year 2000, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Expects Business to Quiet in 2001

    SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, Kahl/Main, far exceeded expectations in 2000 with record sales of approx. 730 million DM (unaudited). By now the largest company in the industry, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES was not only able to maintain, but even expand its world market leadership in CD and DVD replication lines.

      Net income for 2000 should double the prior year's 46.5 million
DM, and is expected to approach 100 million DM (unaudited). SINGULUS
TECHNOLOGIES will surely be among the most profitable corporations on
the NEMAX 50 of the Neuer Markt.

    Following uninterrupted and at times turbulent growth during the past 5 years, the company now concludes that there will be a quieting in the course of business. The principal reasons for this are attributed to the decline in the Far Eastern markets of Hong Kong and Taiwan, currently distinguished by overcapacity. The line business in China, Europe and the U.S. is proceeding normally.


      Nevertheless, assessments of mid-term growth in the opitcal disc
replication line business continue to be very positive. The
increasing acceptance and market penetration of DVD for video
applications as well as DVD-ROM for game consoles such as SONY's
Playstation 2 and MICROSOFT's X-Box will call for increasing
worldwide expansion of production capacity in coming years.As a
result of its leading market position, SINGULUS
TECHNOLOGIES'participation will be above average. The MODULUS line
introduced in 2000 will also enable the company to successfully
access the latest business sector for rewritable CD-RW and
DVD-RW/RAM.

      Even in terms of annual net income, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES can
be expected to continue to rank among top earners in the Neuer
Markt's NEMAX 50.
