Aurelius sells healthcare activity of brightONE to T-Systems

  - Strategic market entry for T-Systems

  - brightONE Healthcare (HC) number four in the market

Munich, December 20, 2013 - The Munich-based AURELIUS Group (ISIN
DE000A0JK2A8) has sold the healthcare activity of its brightONE subsidiary.
The buyer is T-Systems International GmbH, the IT subsidiary of Deutsche
Telekom AG, for which the transaction represents a further step in becoming
an integrated player in the healthcare IT segment. The former business
units of the Finland-based Tieto Group in Germany and the Netherlands have
been generating total annual revenues of approximately EUR 110 million in
recent years. Within this total, revenues of around EUR 20 million are
attributable to the healthcare activities. T-Systems is also acquiring the
service and maintenance business run from India alongside the German and
Dutch units. This strategic acquisition gives Deutsche Telekom's IT
subsidiary access to the lucrative German and Dutch healthcare markets,
which is reflected in the purchase price accordingly. The transaction is
subject to approval by the relevant antitrust authorities.

The new owner, T-Systems, knows the company very well as it has been
brightONE HC's biggest customer. The two companies have enjoyed a strong
business relationship going back many years. The move provides T-Systems
with the best possible strategic access to the healthcare market. 'We're
absolutely delighted to announce this success,' says Dr. Dirk Markus, CEO
of AURELIUS. 'Everyone involved will benefit from this move. The employees
and the activity have found a strong partner and T-Systems can position
itself in the burgeoning healthcare market.' In its short time as an
AURELIUS subsidiary, brightONE has performed extremely well. The main
product of the healthcare activity is iMedOne, an innovative, all-round
hospital information system.

The healthcare business being spun off from brightONE is number four in the
German market. Besides iMedOne in Germany, the core business mainly
comprises activities involving hospital databases. The iMedOne and iMedOne
mobile hospital information systems support processes in hospitals in many
different ways. Both systems provide a major contribution to economic
efficiency and enhanced quality, and make the work of both doctors and
nursing staff much easier. 'The acquisition is the most important step for
our business segment this year. As a result, we will become one of the
leading providers in this high-revenue sector,' said Dr. Axel Wehmeier,
Head of the Health Solutions business of T-Systems. The service and
maintenance business will be run from India as before.
