USU Software AG Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

USU Software AG reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company increased its IFRS Group-wide sales by 5.7% year-on-year to EUR 14,069,000 against EUR 13,314,000 a year ago. The rise in sales reported for USU Software AG and its subsidiaries results from consistently expansive international business, which grew by 51.8% as against the previous year to EUR 4,196,000 in the reporting quarter of EUR 2,764,000. As a result of the substantial expansion in international business and the associated sales growth, combined with an only minor increase in costs, the USU Group's profitability improved significantly in the opening quarter of 2015. Adjusted for the extraordinary effects of acquisitions, USU's adjusted EBIT climbed by 127.7% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2015 to EUR 1,077,000 against EUR 473,000 a year ago. Unadjusted, USU generated EBIT of EUR 743,000 against EUR 97,000 a year ago, a year-on-year increase of 674%. At the same time, USU doubled its EBITDA as against first quarter of 2014 to EUR 1,288,000 against EUR 642,000 a year ago. The consolidated net profit amounted to EUR 929,000 in the first quarter of 2015 after a loss of EUR 82,000 in the same period of the previous year. USU's earnings per share improved accordingly from negative EUR 0.01 in the previous year to EUR 0.09 in the first quarter of 2015. The consolidated earnings generated led to a rise in the Group's equity to EUR 56,466,000 as of March 31, 2015 After the positive start to the year, the Management Board of USU Software AG expects the growth trend of the previous years to continue successfully in 2015 as a whole. International business particularly is set to increase significantly. This will be aided by the ongoing penetration of the US market and the expansion of activities in Central Europe. Overall, the Management Board is reiterating its planning of an increase in consolidated sales to between EUR 64 million and EUR 68 million in fiscal 2015, together with a strong rise in adjusted EBIT to between EUR 8 million and EUR 9.5 million. On the basis of this forecast, the Management Board is planning to let the shareholders of USU Software AG participate in the company's business success in 2015 as well, as it has done in previous years, thereby upholding the shareholder-friendly dividend policy in the spirit of sustainable continuity. For the fiscal 2014, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board have proposed a profit distribution of EUR 0.30 per share to the Annual General Meeting of USU Software AG, an increase in the dividend of 20% as against the previous year.

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.
