 Berlin - PSI Group increased its EBIT to 17.2 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 15.5 million euros) 
 in financial year 2019. The EBITDA jumped by almost 40 % to 28.0 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 
 20.1 million euros), to which the conversion to IFRS 16 also contributed 5.3 million euros. 
 The Group net result increased by almost 35 % to 14.3 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 10.6 million 
 euros) due to fiscal effects, the result per share improved accordingly to 0.91 Euro (31 Dec. 
 2018: 0.68 Euro). Sales increased by 13.1 % to 225.2 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 199.2 million 
 euros). The thematic fields smart grid and transportation transition grew by 15 %, industry 
 4.0 sectors increased organically by 10 %, despite the steel and diesel crisis in Europe. 
 New orders increased by 8.8 % to 236 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 217 million euros), the 
 order book volume at the end of the year increased by 2.2 % to 142 million euros (31 Dec. 
 2018: 139 million euros). 
 
 Energy Management (energy networks, energy trading, public transportation) increased sales 
 by 16.1 % to 115.8 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 99.7 million euros) after the acquisition 
 of BTC Smart Grid, the EBIT for the segment improved to 7.2 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 6.8 
 million euros), despite the 2.1 million in integration costs. The electrical and integrated 
 grids business increased its new orders and sales significantly and completed the integration 
 of the acquired activities. The gas networks and pipelines business increased its new orders 
 and sales, also thanks to large orders from Russia, and results recovered. The PSI subsidiary 
 in Southeast Asia continued its austerity measures. Public transport grew by 45 %, doubled 
 its earnings and currently has a top seller for the German and French markets with the new 
 electric bus charging and depot management system. 
 Sales in Production Management (raw materials, metals, industry, logistics) grew organically 
 by 9.9 % to 109.4 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 99.5 million euros), the EBIT increased by 
 18 % to 11.8 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 10.0 million euros). Metals production business 
 was able to compensate for the weakness in Europe with major orders from the USA and China. 
 Automotive & industry came through the year of the diesel and particulate matter crisis well 
 with numerous upgrade projects. Logistics grew by 28 % with strong partner business. All segments 
 significantly improved their results based on the migration of their products to the PSI Java 
 Framework and a growing partner structure. In Poland, PSI continued to grow with orders for 
 logistics, production and energy networks. 
 The number of employees in the group on 31 Dec. 2019 rose by 197 to 1,984 (31 Dec. 2018: 1,787) 
 compared with the previous year due to new hires and the acquisition in the Energy segment. 
 Cash flow from operating activities, at EUR 12.5 million (Dec. 31, 2018: EUR 19.0 million) 
 was down from the strong prior-year figure, not least due to growth financing. The share of 
 revenues from maintenance and upgrade subscriber contracts was further increased to 33.5%. 
 After payment of the purchase price for the BTC Smart Grid, liquid funds at the end of the 
 year decreased to 38.7 million euros (31 Dec. 2018: 44.6 million euros), so that PSI continues 
 to have sufficient funds for targeted acquisitions. The Management Board will propose a dividend 
 of 0.05 euro (previous year: 0.25 euro) to the Annual General Meeting in consultation with 
 the Supervisory Board. The effects of the current corona crisis cannot be conclusively quantified 
 at this point in time from the perspective of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board. 
 The Federal Government has identified an exceptional emergency situation. In such a situation, 
 the Management Board and Supervisory Board consider it advisable, as a precaution, to leave 
 a higher proportion of the profit than in previous years in the company. 
 PSI again spent 24.0 million euros on research and development in the reporting year, about 
 one third of which was for the product and platform strategy. Two thirds of the products have 
 been converted to the PSI Java platform, and intensive work is being done on the remaining 
 third. The graphical user interface of the platform also runs without adjustment expenses 
 in the Internet (or in intranets) and on mobile devices. PSI is currently testing an app store 
 for the platform products, from which partners and regular customers can choose automatic 
 delivery to various clouds. 
 PSI will participate in the climate protection programme of the German federal government 
 (energy transition, heat transition, transport transition) and the Green Deal in the European 
 Union. PSI software contributes significantly to the integration of renewable energy into 
 the electricity networks. The gas network will become the sole failure guarantor and be expanded 
 in the future by green gases and a hydrogen network. 
 Prior to the corona crisis, PSI had aimed for a continuation of growth and a further increase 
 in the EBIT by 10% in 2020. The corona virus will lead to delays in the awarding of contracts, 
 but for many customers PSI is also important in defending against the crisis. PSI had already 
 equipped all 2,000 employees in advance with notebooks and remote access for home offices. 
 Due to the high volume of orders on hand, management is therefore currently expecting a slight 
 weakening of sales and a one-time 20% decrease in the EBIT.
