SNP AG Takes Over One of the Largest SAP Partners in Central and Eastern Europe

- Revenue forecast for the 2017 fiscal year increased to about EUR 110 million

Heidelberg, Germany, May 4, 2017 - SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner AG (WKN: 720370, ISIN: DE0007203705) will acquire 100% of the shares in the Polish BCC Group, headquartered in Poznan, taking effect in May 2017. The necessary approval from the relevant bodies was granted today. BBC ranks among the largest SAP partners in Central and Eastern Europe and specializes in the areas of SAP service, software development and cloud provisioning.

The internationally focused Group has about 300 employees. That number includes over 200 SAP and IT consultants, which makes it one of the largest SAP teams in Central and Eastern Europe. The Poznan-based company has more than 20 years of market experience and generated revenue in the amount of EUR 20 million with an EBIT margin in the mid single-digit percentage range in the 2016 fiscal year. The exact purchase price is being treated as confidential by both parties. SNP AG will use existing liquid funds to finance the acquisition.

"BCC is an ideally positioned company and one of the largest SAP partners in Central and Eastern Europe. With over 400 customers in 40 countries, BCC has an impressive customer list and a lot of international project experience. We are expanding our knowledge in the areas of SAP service and cloud provisioning with this acquisition. For this purpose, BCC is maintaining two of its own data processing centers. In addition, we are increasing our presence in the Polish and Eastern European SAP and IT market. Further synergy potential is offered by software development focused on software applications in the SAP environment in particular. With this acquisition, we are continuing to pursue our successful strategy of organic and inorganic growth. SNP is well on its way with more than a thousand employees worldwide," said Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither.

With this purchase, the Executive Board has adjusted the SNP Group revenue forecast and expects Group revenue of about EUR 110 million for the current 2017 fiscal year. The earnings forecast remains unchanged.
