secunet Security Networks AG: preliminary figures for the 2013 financial
year

[Essen, 23 January 2014] secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503,
WKN 727650), a leading German supplier of high-quality IT security and an
IT security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany, published its
preliminary figures for its 2013 Annual Financial Statements today. The
company reached its projected figures for both revenue and earnings before
interest and taxes (EBIT). The order book at the end of the year was above
the previous year's level, and accordingly, secunet's growth forecast for
the current 2014 financial year is good.

As forecast in October, in the 2013 financial year the secunet Group
achieved revenue of Euro 63.9m (compared with Euro 67.2m in the previous
year), as well as earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of Euro 3.7m
(Euro 5.7m in the previous year).

'2013 was characterised by high expenditure for winning and implementing
major projects, which is why our revenue and EBIT results are lower than
last year,' commented Dr Rainer Baumgart, Chairman of the Management Board
of secunet Security Networks AG.

As at 31 December 2013, the order book was worth Euro 40.3m, which
represents a 7% increase compared with the figure at the end of 2012 (Euro
37.6m).

'We are starting the new year with an excellent order book. We also
significantly optimised our products and customer support in 2013. secunet
is a trusted supplier of high-quality security solutions, and in light of
the current debate on information and data security, we expect demand to
increase further,' explained Dr Rainer Baumgart. 'We are very confident
that we will be able to continue the growth trend seen in previous years in
the current financial year.'

secunet will publish the complete 2013 Annual Financial Statements and the
2013 Annual Report on 25 March 2014. Further information can be found at
