These significant growth rates of the financial figures reflect both the dynamic organic growth of the Group, showing an increase of 48% in Turnover and an increase of 318% in Earnings before Taxes, but also the full integration of DATA COMMUNICATION S.A with sales of approximately €1.6 million during the corresponding period and profitability of € 279 thousand.

Regarding SINGULARLOGIC, it should be noted that in the specific quarter it is consolidated with the equity method as of 11/01/2021, having little participation in the specific results, while the newly established subsidiary Epsilon SingularLogic has a low contribution to the results of the Group, since it was established on 22/01/2021 and until the end of the quarter, only a small part of the sales of the dealer network was integrated into it.

Furthermore, given the strategic plan for the integration of the Group’s commercial applications and ERP in Epsilon SingularLogic which is in progress and should be completed at the end of June, a significant contribution of Epsilon SingularLogic is further expected in the next quarters.

During the first quarter of 2021, Group’s equity increased further, while Group’s liquidity was maintained in very satisfactory level, despite important acquisitions that were completed during the last six months.

The corporate transformation of the Group is evolving rapidly, while the operational integration of various departments contributes significantly to economies of scale and the improvement of the operating margin
