Munich, February 14, 2008 – Nemetschek AG, leading vendor worldwide of integrated software solutions for the real estate industry, looks back on a successful financial 2007 and thus builds effectively on the positive development of the previous years.

Graphisoft successfully integrated

According to the preliminary figures, the group managed to increase sales revenues by 36.0% to 146.2 million euros (previous year: 107.5 million euros) as a result of both organic growth and the successful integration of Graphisoft. Q4 contributed 43.4 million euros to annual sales – a significant increase compared to the same period in the previous year (32.7 million euros).
In 2007, sales increased both in Germany, where revenues of 45.7 million euros in the previous year rose to 53.6 million euros in 2007, and internationally from 61.8 million euros in 2006 to 92.6 million euros for fiscal 2007. This represents a sales distribution between Germany and the rest of the world of 36.7% to 63.3%.

Nemetschek financially strong with high earning power
The EBITDA grew sharply by 63.3% to 33.7 million euros (previous year: 20.6 million euros). At 23.1%, the EBITDA margin is higher than in the previous year (19.2%), thus convincingly meeting the forecast. The operating profit (EBIT), too, rose by a clear 34.8% to 23.9 million euros (previous year: 17.8 million euros).
With 30.8 million euros (previous year: 21.2 million euros) Nemetschek achieved the highest cash flow for the period in its history. The cash flow from normal business activities increased to 25.3 million euros – up by 38.3% (previous year: 18.3 million euros).
