Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, secunet Security Networks AG: Correction of the forecast for 2013

[Essen, 01 Octobre 2013] The Management Board of secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503, WKN 727650), a leading German supplier of high-quality IT security and an IT security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany, has corrected its forecast for the 2013 financial year. Whereas until now a moderate increase in revenue with earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) remaining at the same level as the previous year was expected (revenue 2012: EUR 67.2m; EBIT: EUR 5,7m), the Management Board now anticipates revenue of around EUR 63m with EBIT of around EUR 4m. The forecast correction is a result of customer postponements of major projects in the Public Sector business unit, which were originally scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.
