Amadeus FiRe AG:
Final figures for the 2013 fiscal year

Frankfurt/Main, 19 March 2014. Amadeus FiRe confirms the preliminary
figures for financial year 2013.

In fiscal year 2013 the Amadeus FiRe group achieved consolidated sales of
EUR 142.1m (prior year EUR 137.0m), an increase of 3.7% compared to prior
year. Sales improved in all services.

The gross profit margin of 42.3% was slightly below prior year's 42.5%
(-0.2 percentage points), mainly caused by a margin decrease in temporary
staffing due to one chargeable day less in fiscal year 2013.

Selling and administrative expenses rose by EUR 1.2m to EUR 36.8m (prior
year EUR 35.6m), deriving from additional training costs for the sales
force as well as increased personnel expenditures and further development
of the front end software.

Amadeus FiRe group's earnings before interest, tax and goodwill
amortisation (EBITA) amounted to EUR 23.3m (prior year EUR 22.7m), an
increase of 2.5%. The EBITA margin of 16.4% nearly confirmed the previous
year's level of 16.6%.

Hence the Amadeus FiRe group generated a consolidated profit after minority
interests of EUR 14.7m after EUR 13.5m in the prior year.

Earnings per share stand at EUR 2.83 for fiscal year 2013 (prior year: EUR
2.60) in relation to the profit for the period attributable to ordinary
shareholders.

2013 was the most successful operating year in the history of the Amadeus
FiRe group again. Currently management board and supervisory board
anticipate no additional liquidity requirements and will propose a dividend
of EUR 2.83 per share at the AGM on 22 May 2014. This dividend corresponds
to the group's net result.

The annual report 2013 will be published on 03 April 2014 on the Amadeus
FiRe website (www.amadeus-fire.de).
