CANCOM financial statement 2012 approved

Munich, Germany, 12 March 2013 - With presentation of the final results and
approval of the financial statement 2012 by the Supervisory Board, CANCOM
Group confirms the provisional figures announced on 31 January 2013, and
increases the dividend payment for the financial year 2012. So the IT Group
achieved revenues of EUR 558.1 million for the full year 2012, compared
with EUR 544.4 million in 2011 (+2.5 percent).

Consolidated EBITDA rose up 12.4 percent to EUR 28.1 million compared with
EUR 25.0 million in the previous year 2011. This is equivalent to an EBITDA
margin of 5.0 percent, compared to 4.6 percent in 2011. The consolidated
EBIT of EUR 20.7 million (2011: EUR 18.5 million) showed a significant
increase of 11.9 percent year on year.

In total the CANCOM Group reports earnings per share in the amount of EUR
1.15 in 2012 after EUR 1.14 in 2011.

According to the good business development in 2012, in today's meeting the
Executive Board and Supervisory Board of CANCOM SE propose a dividend
payment of EUR 0.35 per share after EUR 0.30 in the previous year. The
distribution proposal is subject to the approval of the shareholders annual
general meeting of CANCOM SE on 18 June 2013 in Munich, Germany.

In comparison with the extremely good first quarter of last year, Group
revenues and Group profit in the current quarter are influenced by various
effects. On the one hand a weaker economic environment, on the other hand
run-up costs for projects and opportunity costs, which are due to the high
demand for the CANCOM AHP Private Cloud.

In contrast to the classical project business, the implementation of cloud
projects does not often result in immediate sales and earnings.
Nevertheless, once these projects have been completed, these customer
services generate a long term safe and steady cash flow for CANCOM. Hence
the growing business with cloud solutions will lead to a slight decline in
revenues and profits in the short term in comparison with the historical
figures. On a long term basis we expect this business to increase the
Group's profitability.

The weaker economic environment and the increasing shift towards cloud
solutions will now lead to Group revenues and Group profits in q1 below
previous year's level.

The full report of CANCOM SE and CANCOM Group will be published on 20 March
2013 and will then be available on
