    Issuer's information/explanation remarks concerning this ad hoc announcement:

    As already reported i:FAO has, in fiscal year 2000, separated the eHotel and cabana divisions from the company. In combination with the complete discontinuation of regular travel agency services this results in improved margins between revenue and profit. Gross sales for 2001 will, because of the separations of eHotel and Travel Service, be reduced by approximately EURO 15 million, while the gross profit will only be affected marginally and the operative results will be strengthened. From January 1, 2001 onwards i:FAO will discontinue to report - as usual in the travel industry - gross sales. This will  adapt i:FAO Aktiengesellschaft's reporting principles to those of the software industry. The new reporting formats will also make certain that the dynamic growth in the cytric division is properly reflected in the published numbers.

    The complete quarterly report is available from April 26, 2001, 11.00 am local time on our website at http://www.ifao.net for download as a .pdf file.

    i:FAO is traded at the Neuer Markt of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Detailed information for investors is available on the Internet at http://www.ifao.net/ir.
