USU Software AG Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

USU Software AG announced consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company generated an 11% increase in sales according to IFRS to EUR 15.9 million against EUR 14.3 million a year ago. This increase was chiefly due to the strong international business, which contributed sales of EUR 5.7 million against EUR 4.0 million a year ago to consolidated sales in the quarter under review and accordingly posted an above-average rise of 42% year on year. USU benefited particularly from a significant expansion of software license business. EBITDA thus climbed by 32% year on year to EUR 2.3 million against EUR 1.7 million a year ago. Earnings before interest and taxes improved from EUR 1.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 to EUR 1.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, corresponding to a rise of 49%. USU increased its consolidated net profit according to IFRS by 39% year on year to EUR 1.4 million in the quarter under review against EUR 1.0 million a year ago, resulting in earnings per share of EUR 0.14 against EUR 0.10 a year ago. EBIT after adjustment for the extraordinary effects of acquisitions totaled EUR 1.8 million against EUR 1.5 million a year ago, equivalent to growth of 20% as against second quarter of 2014. USU increased its adjusted consolidated earnings by 9% from EUR 1.4 million in second quarter of 2014 to EUR 1.5 million in the quarter under review. Adjusted earnings per share therefore improved to EUR 0.14 against EUR 0.13 a year ago. In the first half of the year, USU increased its consolidated sales by 8% year on year to EUR 29.9 million against EUR 27.6 million a year ago, particularly as a result of the continuing international expansion. As a result of the significant expansion of high-margin product business combined with only a moderate rise in costs, the USU Group achieved a considerable improvement in earnings in the first six months of the 2015 fiscal year compared to the first half of 2014. USU increased its EBITDA by 51% year on year to EUR 3.5 million in the first half of the year against EUR 2.3 million a year ago, while EBIT almost doubled in the same period to EUR 2.5 million against EUR 1.2 million a year ago. USU improved its consolidated earnings according to IFRS from EUR 1.0 million in the previous year to EUR 2.4 million in the period under review, representing an increase of 148%. Earnings per share in the first half of the year totaled EUR 0.23 against EUR 0.09 a year ago. The USU Group's adjusted EBIT climbed by 46% year on year in the first half of 2015 to EUR 2.9 million against EUR 2.0 million a year ago. At the same time, USU increased its adjusted consolidated earnings by 60% compared to the previous year to EUR 2.8 million against EUR 1.7 million a year ago. The USU Group's adjusted earnings per share therefore rose year on year to EUR 0.26 against EUR 0.16 a year ago. The company has slightly raised the lower level of the guidance based on the above assumptions and has adjusted the planning range accordingly. The planning for the USU Group now anticipates a rise in consolidated sales to EUR 65 million to EUR 68 million against previously reported guidance of EUR 64 million to EUR 68 million in the 2015 fiscal year, together with a higher increase in adjusted EBIT to EUR 8.5 million to EUR 9.5 million against previously reported guidance of EUR 8.0 million to EUR 9.5 million.

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.
