Sales performance in the continued business segment Consulting remains unaffected, continuing positive with a forecasted increase of nearly 60 per cent. Overall revenues should amount to 31 million EUR according to forecast. In consequence of Solutions business segments negative contribution to profits, plus the burden of one-off costs in connection with the re-structuring process, the operating result for 2001 will still be negative. In contrast, the cash flow will be balanced this year already.Liquidity will increase significantly.A positive EBIT is projected for the year 2002.

Issuer`s information/explanatory remarks concerning this ad-hoc-announcement:

ORBIS and SAP agree to extensive co-operation in the CRM market

Saarbrücken/Walldorf, 24 September 2001 --- As of October 2001, Orbis GmbH in Saarbrücken - mySAP.com Alliance Partner Service and CRM software provider - and SAP AG in Walldorf, the leading provider of E-Business software solutions, have agreed to expand their 15-year co-operation on the CRM market.

To this end, both partners have now founded a joint competence centre for CRM (customer relationship management) in Saarbrücken. Within this framework, the companies agreed to comprehensive co-operation which will focus, in particular, on joint activities in the areas of product development, distribution and the implementation of branch-specific CRM solutions. A joint steering committee has been set up to co-ordinate these activities.

Subject to clearance by the appropriate antitrust authority, around 60 Orbis employees engaged in development and product distribution of CRM software will be moving to SAP at the Saarbrücken site. Moreover, Orbis will be participating in SAPs mySAP CRM partner programme in Germany.

Orbis is to orientate its business model predominantly towards offering consultancy services, thereby focussing on launching mySAP.com. In this context, the around 50 Orbis CRM consultants will enforce the firms core competency within SAPs environments. The consultancy company has been excellently positioned in the market segment for established medium-sized businesses and concerns - serving both industrial as well as consumer goods sectors - for many years. It is intended to provide service to the clients utilising Orbis CRM products. In the mid-term, if requested, assistance will be offered to aid migration to mySAP CRM.

Owing to Orbis prognosis as to how the market will develop - with CRM becoming only one aspect of overall E-Business solutions in the future - and in the wake of detailed analyses of the international providers market, the company has concluded that SAP, the market leader in E-Business solutions, is the correct choice of partner for the future.

Moreover, by dint of their long years co-operation, SAP is essentially Orbis ideal partner. Speaker of the board, Klaus Kieren, has achieved a strategic objective through this comprehensive partnership: We are a Business Consulting firm with a strong tradition in CRM. This extensive form of co-operation will enable us to further expand our expertise in CRM - thus enhancing our profile as SAP consultancy firm with key competencies in the growth markets CRM and supply chain management (SCM).

Orbis is an internationally-active business consulting company orientated towards mySAP.com. Its key competencies are providing advice on customer relationship management (CRM), product lifecycle management (PLM) as well as supply chain management (SCM) processes. Orbis thereby implements a universal consulting approach that adresses strategies, the relevant corporate processes and appropriate technology, right up to system integration and advice on multimedia deployment. The company has garnered particular branch competencies in the industrial and consumer goods sectors.
