S&T AG: Successful with Strong Organic Growth - 3rd Quarter 2006:
Continued clear focus on core industries and services - Forecasts
revised upward

25 October 2006. Austria - Vienna. S&T System Integration &
Technology Distribution AG closes Q3 2006 with an outstanding result.
In the summer months the IT solutions provider generated sales of EUR
113.2 million (+35.6% compared to Q3 2005 with EUR 83.5 million) and
an EBIT of EUR 1.5 million (+94.1% compared to EUR 0.8 million in Q3
2005). Sales between January 1st and the end of September 2006
totalled EUR 319.0 million, an increase of 41.9% on the same period
in 2005 (2005: EUR 224.7 million). EBIT in the same period amounted
to EUR 7.6 million, 131.3% higher than at the end of September 2005
(2005: EUR 3.3 million). This substantial growth is a result from the
extremely positive level of incoming orders at the company and S&T
AG’s consistent implementation of its core industries and services

The third quarter 2006 at S&T was characterised by strong organic
growth. Although the Czech Grall Group taken over in April 2006 was
consolidated, as a medium-sized investment this did not have a
material impact. The same applies to the recently sold Swiss company
EFP. The recently acquired Hungarian company Unitis and T-Systems
Turkey will probably be consolidated in Q4. In fact this pleasing
result clearly reflects the company’s focus on software solutions and
managed services. "The summer months this year were characterised by
continuously full order books and the resulting turnover. Our clear
positioning as a total solutions provider has delivered excellent
results for eight consecutive quarters. We will continue to place
strong emphasis on organic growth, but this does not mean
acquisitions will not play a role in future," explained Christian
Rosner, CEO of S&T AG.

Strong growth dynamics in the business units Managed Services and
Business Solutions The two business segments Managed Services and
Business Solutions still have the wind in their sails and remained
the business areas with the highest margins in Q3 2006. Managed
Services covers orders to increase the productivity of IT systems and
the consolidation and optimal alignment of business-critical IT
processes within a company. Business Solutions includes all SAP
projects, as well as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) orders,
document management and Enterprise Application Integration (e.g. SOA
Service Oriented Applications). S&T is one of the leading SAP
integrators in CEE and pursues the clear goal of reinforcing and
expanding this competitive position.

Czech Republic and Poland the Strongest Countries A comparison of
the 18 S&T countries shows the dominance of Poland and the Czech
Republic. Their IT markets are highly developed and report strong
demand for IT solutions. In the Czech Republic, the medical business
was especially successful in Q3. The S&T countries Croatia, Serbia,
Romania, Hungary and Ukraine were also extremely dynamic.

Forecast Revised Upward Due to the positive development of business
S&T will exceed its original sales and EBIT targets for the financial
year 2006 of EUR 400 million and EUR 10 million respectively. In
fact, annual sales are now expected to total approximately EUR 430
million and EBIT approximately EUR 11 million. The fourth quarter
will also be characterised by strong growth in the solutions
business. "Our project pipeline is nicely filled and we do not rule
out one or the other acquisition," said Rosner.
