Around 83 % of the share capital were present at the general shareholders’ meeting. All agenda items were passed with over 99 % of the votes.
In his report pertaining to both the financial year 2006 and to the company’s current development, Dr. Rainer Baumgart, CEO of secunet Security Networks AG, also discussed the first quarter results as well as the company’s prospects for the financial year 2007. Following the challenging financial year 2006, the prospects for 2007 were significantly more positive. As growth drivers, he had identified the economic upswing, secunet’s clear strategic orientation and optimised organisation as well as rising demand for IT security in many areas. The current high volume of orders on hand (Euro 21.5 million as per 31 March 2007) was a good early indicator of the 2007 operating result.
“The first quarter 2007 results show that, as a result of our new strategy, we are now on the right course“, said Mr. Baumgart with respect to the management board’s assessment of the Q1 figures. “We have overcome the slump in turnover that occurred in 2006 and expect the financial year 2007 to emulate the excellent results of the record year 2005.“
