crossvision as well as Adabas 2006 and Natural 2006 create important foundations for powerful IT infrastructures. In addition to expanding our portfolio (additional products in the crossvision product line will be available in the second half of the year), we will continue the geographic expansion in Latin America, in Eastern Europe and the Near East. With this in mind, we are confirming our expectations of being able to increase our currency-adjusted Group sales by 10 percent for the year as a whole.

We expect this growth to be primarily based on the increase in licensing revenue. The crossvision business line will accelerate growth as additional products become available; this line is expected to grow by 20 to 30 percent. For the established ETS business area, we anticipate sales growth in the 5 to 7 percent range. Maintenance revenues should remain stable. For professional services, we expect revenue growth of between 12 and 15 percent.

With regard to Group income, we continue to anticipate an EBIT ratio of 21 – 23 percent.
