Preliminary figures show Tipp24 exceeded own forecasts for fiscal year 2010
and posted record earnings

(Hamburg, 19 January 2011) According to preliminary and unaudited figures,
Tipp24 SE exceeded its own forecasts for fiscal year 2010 and posted its
best-ever revenues and earnings. In August 2010, Tipp24 had downgraded its
consolidated revenue forecast from originally EUR 100 million to EUR 90
million and its EBIT forecast from originally EUR 40 million to EUR 20
million. Following an exceptionally strong fourth quarter, Tipp24 now
expects consolidated revenues for 2010 to reach approx. EUR 104 (prior
year: 89.6) million. This would correspond to revenue growth of around 15%.

There was also strong growth in EBIT, from EUR 23.1 million in the previous
year to an expected figure of around EUR 30 million in fiscal year 2010.
Consolidated net profit is expected to reach approx. EUR 19 (17.5) million.
This would result in preliminary earnings per share of approx. EUR 2.46
(2.26). Consolidated cash and cash equivalents at the end of 2010 amounted
to around EUR 92 (81.1) million.

Tipp24 SE intends to announce its forecast for fiscal year 2011 at its
annual press conference on 30 March 2010.
