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

Especially in the area of Cost of Sales there is a significant improvement due to the normalization of purchase prices for electronic components and productivity gains at CeoTronics manufacturing plants in Rothenschirmbach (Saxonia-Anhalt, Germany) and Chesapeake (Virginia, USA). Although sales increased, expenses for Marketing and Sales, Administration as well as Research and Development dropped substantially. Sales losses after the terror attacks on September 11 in the airline industry were overcompensated with sales of communication products to the law enforcement. "After finishing the stage of capital expenditure with strong internal and moderate external growth, CeoTronics will now concentrate on the marketing of new product developments in the extended distribution area. CeoTronics is guided by the in April 2001 changed strategic maxim: Profitability goes before growth", said Hans-Dieter Günther, CeoTronics CEO.
