USU Software AG Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months of 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2014

USU Software AG reported consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months of 2014. With consolidated sales under IFRS of EUR 14,293,000 compared to EUR 12,301,000 for the same period a year ago, the Company and its subsidiaries generated an organic increase in sales of 16.2% compared to the previous year. This was chiefly attributable to the significant expansion of international business. On an unadjusted basis, USU generated a 328.9% rise in EBITDA to EUR 1,707,000 in the quarter under review compared to EUR 398,000 a year ago. USU improved its EBIT from EUR 32,000 in the second quarter of 2013 to EUR 1,151,000 at present. The USU Group's consolidated net profit calculated in accordance with IFRS totaled EUR 1,040,000 after a net loss of EUR 136,000 in the same quarter of the previous year. This corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 0.10 compared to loss of EUR 0.01 for the same period a year ago. In the first half of the year, the USU Group generated a sales increase of 12.0% year-on-year to EUR 27,607,000 compared to EUR 24,644,000 a year ago. In addition to strong international business, USU also benefited from sales of the new product innovations. As a result of the significant expansion of high-margin license business and a comparatively moderate development of costs, the USU Group as a whole achieved a disproportionately high increase in profitability in the first six months of 2014. Adjusted EBIT accordingly increased significantly to EUR 1,984,000 in the first half of 2014 compared to EUR 238,000 a year ago. The company also generated substantial growth in adjusted consolidated earnings to EUR 1,733,000 compared to loss of EUR 42,000 a year ago, corresponding to adjusted earnings per share of EUR 0.16 compared to EUR 0.00 a year ago. Not including acquisition-related adjustments, USU increased its EBITDA by 487.3% year-on-year to EUR 2,349,000 in the period under review compared to EUR 400,000 a year ago. Including depreciation and amortization expense of EUR 1,101,000 compared to EUR 717,000 a year ago, EBIT amounted to EUR 1,248,000 compared to loss of EUR 317,000 a year ago. USU increased its consolidated net profit from loss of EUR 570,000 in the previous year to EUR 958,000 in the first half of 2014, corresponding to earnings per share of EUR 0.09 compared to loss of EUR 0.05 a year ago. Following the positive business performance in the first half of 2014, the Management Board confirms the planning for the USU Group, which anticipates for 2014 an increase in sales to EUR 63 million to EUR 65 million compared to EUR 55.7 million in 2013. Adjusted EBIT is expected to rise to EUR 8 million to EUR 8.5 million compared to EUR 5.1 million in 2013 throughout the Group. At the same time, the Management Board confirms the medium-term planning, which predicts that the EUR 100 million sales threshold will be exceeded by 2017 and that the adjusted EBIT margin will rise to over 15%.

Bernhard Oberschmidt will continue to serve as chairman of the Management Board.

USU Software AG Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2014

USU Software AG announced consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 2014. The company had a successful start to the first quarter of fiscal 2014 with an organic growth in consolidated sales according to IFRS of 7.9% to EUR 13,314,000 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 12,343,000). The sales growth recorded by the company and its Group subsidiaries (hereafter referred to as USU or USU Group) resulted especially from strong international business, to which the subsidiary Aspera Technologies Inc. in the USA made a particular contribution alongside the partner CA Technologies. USU increased its international sales by 59.0% compared to the first quarter of the previous year to EUR 2,764,000 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 1,738,000) and thus expanded the share of sales generated outside Germany in consolidated sales to 20.8% (first quarter of 2013: 14.1%). The share of the USU Group's total sales generated outside Germany therefore exceeded 20% for the first time in a first quarter in the company's history. In the first quarter of 2014, the USU Group generated consolidated sales of EUR 9,766,000 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 8,879,000) with the Product Business segment, which equates to a year-on-year increase in sales of 10.0%. Consulting sales in the Service Business segment also increased slightly by 1.4% to EUR 3,496,000 year on year due to the successful generation of several customer projects (first quarter of 2013: EUR 3,448,000). Sales not allocated to the segments totaled EUR 52,000 in the months from January to March 2014 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 16,000). In the wake of the sales increase, the USU Group increased the profitability of the Group as a whole disproportionately in the quarter under review. For example, USU increased earnings before interest and taxes adjusted for extraordinary effects due to acquisitions (adjusted EBIT) to EUR 473,000 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 22,000) as anticipated. Unadjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) totaled EUR 97,000 (first quarter of 2013: EUR -348,000). At the same time, the USU Group improved its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) from EUR 2,000 in the first quarter of 2013 to EUR 642,000 at present. After taxes, the USU Group's loss amounted to EUR 82,000 in the first quarter of 2014 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 434,000), equivalent to loss per share of EUR 0.01 (first quarter of 2013: EUR 0.04). After the positive start to fiscal 2014, the management board confirms the planning for the USU Group, which anticipates an increase in sales to EUR 63 - 65 million (2013: EUR 55.7 million) for the year as a whole, corresponding to organic sales growth of over 13% year on year. In addition to the domestic business growth, the Management Board expects significant growth potential in the international business in particular. Accordingly, adjusted EBIT is expected to rise to EUR 8 - 8.5 million (2013: EUR 5.1 million) throughout the Group. At the same time, the Management Board confirms the medium-term planning, which predicts that the EUR 100 million sales threshold will be exceeded by 2017 and that the adjusted EBIT margin will rise to over 15%. Based on this forecast, the Management Board plans - both in 2014 and beyond - to allow the shareholders of USU Software AG to participate significantly in the company's operating success again and thus to continue the shareholder-friendly dividend policy of the past years. For fiscal 2013, the Management Board and Supervisory Board have proposed a profit distribution of EUR 0.25 per share to the Annual General Meeting.
