The answers to the following questions outstanding from the conference:

Capitalization went up qoq and adjusted for this tailwind you wouldn’t have beat my EBITDA estimate [Note: Knut Woller, analyst Baader Bank]. What is the reason for the sequential pick up of capitalization and how will it develop going forward?

The position in revenues “other own work capitalized” (page 4 of presentation) includes the implementation work for the SAP HCM project for all DATAGROUP entities. This amount will increase up to 1.5 Mio. € until end of business year. For the coming years we do not expect major revenues in this area.

What measures are you implementing to improve the management of the net working capital?

Overall net working capital is managed well at DATAGROUP but of course there is always room for improvement.
First DATAGROUP will decrease the number of finance lease investments for customers projects like we did in the project NRW bank. We will convince our customers to buy hardware by their own and provide services on their hardware.

Secondly, DATAGROUP will extend the use of factoring services to all DATAGROUP entities i.E. Portavis and Urano
