Issuer's information and explanatory remarks on this ad hoc disclosure:

Not taking into consideration the CT-DECT JetCom systems for the German Armed Forces that were in the order backlog of Q1 last fiscal year, the order backlog as of August 31, 2009 is the highest in Q1 order backlog since the founding of the company.

The "unadjusted" order backlog in comparison to the preceding year is smaller as expected as the third batch of the major order for CT-DECT JetCom systems from the German Armed Forces has been part in the previous year figure and was delivered and invoiced during the fiscal year 2008/2009. Furthermore the worst crisis to the world economy and the financial markets during the last 80 years had its impact on new orders in Q4 of the fiscal year 2008/2009 and the first half of Q1 in 2009/2010.

The lower number of new orders in Q4 of the preceding year and during the first half of Q1 of the current fiscal year led to reduction of turnover by approx. 6% compared to the year before. Due to the lower workload CeoTronics was able to reduce accumulate overtime hours and holiday entitlements during Q1 of the fiscal year 2009/2010.

"The brightening up of the economic climate in some priority markets, the current order backlog, audio and video projects in preparation and the start up of the future switch to digital radio in Germany make us hesitating positive towards the fiscal year 2009/2010", said Thomas H. Günther, Chairman of the Board of Management.
