Ad hoc: secunet AG first half year 2008: Continued high growth in sales, profits at same level as previous year

[Essen, 11 July 2008] According to provisional calculations for the end of the 2nd quarter of 2008, secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503) has continued to achieve high growth in sales. For the first six months of 2008 the company is anticipating a growth in sales of 26% to approximately Euro 21.5m. Profits for the first six months are at the same level as the previous year. The reason for this is expenditure on preparations for large-scale projects. This is a periodic effect which will be balanced out over the course of the year. In spite of increased expenditure, profits of around Euro 0.3m have been achieved. Prospects for the second half-year are good. The management board of the company is therefore standing by its targets for sales and profits for the year as a whole.
secunet will be publishing the complete half-year report for 2008 on the 14 August 2008.
