Munich, 31 March 2008. CTS EVENTIM AG, listed on the SDAX exchange (ISIN DE0005470306), intends to distribute a dividend to its shareholders this year as well. At the Shareholders’ Meeting on 15 May 2008, the Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose that a EUR 0.49 per share dividend be paid on the 24 million shares.

In the 2007 business year, CTS EVENTIM surpassed the record performance it set in 2006.

Group earnings per share in the 2007 business year came in at EUR 0.98, level with the previous year’s figure despite the enormous boost given to the financial figures for 2006 by the special Football World Cup project. Operative cash flow rose to EUR 38.7 million, up from EUR 35.4 million in fiscal 2006.
