USU Software AG Expects to Increase Dividend for the Year 2014; Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

USU Software AG announced that in line with the distribution policy the company has communicated and in the spirit of continuity, the management board and supervisory board will propose to the annual general meeting of the company, a dividend distribution of EUR 0.30 per share for fiscal year 2014. This decision for the announced increase of the profit distribution of 20% compared to the previous year is taking place against the background of the successful development of the USU Group as a whole and the company's further positive business outlook. The company announced consolidated earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company generated group-wide sales growth of 5.8% year-on-year to EUR 58,933,000 in the year under review compared with EUR 55,713,000 a year ago. This upturn is due to the USU Group's sustained expanding international business, especially in the US. The USU Group increased its international sales by 78.5% compared to the previous year to EUR 15,595,000 in 2014 compared with EUR 8,737,000 a year ago and thus expanded the share of sales generated outside Germany in consolidated sales revenue to 26.5% (2013: 15.7%). On an unadjusted basis, the company increased EBITDA by 61.9% year-on-year to EUR 8,886,000 compared with EUR 5,490,000 a year ago. Including depreciation and amortization of EUR 2,213,000 compared with EUR 2,082,000 a year ago, the company almost doubled its EBIT year-on-year to EUR 6,673,000 compared with EUR 3,408,000 a year ago. In 2014, net financial income increased year-on-year to EUR 495,000 compared with EUR 112,000, mainly due to positive exchange rate effects. After taxes, the USU Group increased its consolidated net profit in fiscal year 2014 by 42.9% to EUR 5,512,000 compared with EUR 3,646,000 a year ago. Accordingly, the company improved its earnings per share from EUR 0.35 in the previous year to EUR 0.52 now. In line with the increase in profits, the company generated net cash from operating activities of EUR 7,740,000 compared with EUR 9,855,000 a year ago. The high figure from the previous year was influenced by factors such as payments of the partner CA Technologies Inc. as part of the partnership agreement. The management board expected that the positive growth trend will successfully continue in fiscal year 2015 for the company and its subsidiaries. In doing so, international business, which was the central growth pillar of the USU Group in 2014, is expected to grow significantly in 2015 as well. However, business in Germany is expected to further increase in 2015, too. The management board is expecting significant expansion of the high-margin Product business, primarily from the big-data related areas of license, IT and knowledge management and social business. The consulting-intensive Service business is also anticipated to increase slightly in 2015 according to current planning. A positive indication of this is the year-on-year rise of 21.0% to EUR 28,172,000 as at December 31, 2014 (December 31, 2013: EUR 23,276,000) in the group-wide orders on hand for the USU Group. Overall, the management board expects to expand group sales revenue in fiscal year 2015 to EUR 64 million – EUR 68 million and at the same time considerably increase adjusted EBIT to EUR 8 million – EUR 9.5 million. With international business strongly flourishing, potential on the German core market remaining high and the growth-oriented acquisition policy of the USU Group, the management board also continues to expect the successful implementation of its medium-term planning of sales of more than EUR 100 million with an adjusted EBIT margin in excess of 15% by 2017.

USU Software AG reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the year 2014. The company record sales totaled of EUR 58.9 million, with an organic increase of 6% against EUR 55.7 million a year ago.

USU increased earnings before interest and taxes adjusted for the extraordinary effects of acquisitions (adjusted EBIT) by 43% to EUR 7.3 million on the basis of preliminary calculations against EUR 5.1 million a year ago. On an unadjusted basis, USU doubled earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) from EUR 3.4 million in the previous year to EUR 6.7 million in 2014. In the same period, earnings before interest, taxes, amortization and depreciation (EBITDA) rose by 62% to EUR 8.9 million against EUR 5.5 million a year ago. For the current fiscal year 2015, the management board is optimistic that the group as a whole will again generate significant growth in sales and earnings. Guidance for 2015 envisages consolidated sales in the region of EUR 64 million to EUR 68 million with adjusted EBIT of EUR 8 million to EUR 9.5 million. With international business flourishing, potential on the core German market remaining high and the growth-oriented acquisition policy of the USU Group, the, management board also expects the successful implementation of its medium-term planning of sales of more than EUR 100 million with an adjusted EBIT margin in excess of 15% by 2017.
