The group's consolidated sales revenues were up 6.6 percent year-on-year to
EUR 268.1 million (first half of 2011: EUR 251.5 million) and show a strong
organic growth. Due to a product shift of Apple MacBook Pro in q2, going
along with a backlog in delivery because of strong customer demand, sales
revenues resulting from this will shift to the third and fourth quarter
2012. Effects on group revenues are estimated three to four million euros.
However group's consolidated sales revenues in q2/2012 reached a
continously high level, with EUR 127.0 million compared with previous
year's EUR 126.9 million.

percent, from EUR 77.3 million to EUR 82.4 million.

million recorded in the first half of 2011. This is equivalent to a
significantly increased EBITDA margin of 5.0 percent as compared with 4.3
percent in 2011. Consolidated EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 was up
from EUR 6.1 million to EUR 6.4 million (+4.9 percent).
In the first half of 2012 two internal projects, on the one hand the launch
of a new webshop, and on the other hand the implementing of SAP for CANCOM
NSG GmbH, influenced earnings performance. Despite the implementation
costs, a year-on-year increase in earnings was achieved. The projects will
result in sustainable increases in efficiency.

compared with EUR 7.6 million in the first half of 2011 (+34.2 percent).
