According to provisional calculations, USU Software AG (ISIN
DE000A0BVU28) increased Group sales in the 2005 financial year by 12
percent or TEUR 2,175 to TEUR 20,861 (previous year: TEUR 18,686).
This positive performance was principally the result of the strong
licence business in the second half of 2005, continued good
consulting sales and the acquisition of Omega Software GmbH in
February 2005.
EBITDA in the USU Group improved by TEUR 1,473 to TEUR 974 (previous
year: TEUR -499). EBIT also increased to TEUR 264 (previous year:
TEUR -1,161). Along with the marked increase in sales, a
comparatively moderate cost trend meant that the operating break-even
point was exceeded.
At TEUR 1,048 (previous year: TEUR 364), the consolidated result
increased by a total of TEUR 648. This represents an improvement of
188 percent.
Although the average number of shares in circulation in the reporting
period rose to 8,830,128 (previous year: 8,551,643) no-par value
shares, USU also significantly increased the earnings per share. This
tripled from EUR 0.04 to EUR 0.12 EUR in the 2005 financial year.
In the fourth quarter of 2005 alone, USU generated an increase in
sales of 18 percent to TEUR 6,188 (previous year: TEUR 5,239),
according to provisional calculations. The Group EBITDA grew from
TEUR -53 in previous year to TEUR 633. EBIT increased to TEUR 461
(previous year: TEUR -297). With a net income of TEUR 951 (previous
year: TEUR 143), the USU Group’s earnings per share in the last
quarter of the 2005 financial year amounted to EUR 0.11 (previous
year: EUR 0.02).
USU Software AG will publish the final results for the 2005 financial
year on 20 March, 2006.
