ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


The Management Board of CompuGROUP Holding AG, Koblenz, ISIN DE0005437305 (the company) decided on June 4th, 2009 to make use of the authorization to buy back shares of the company granted by the shareholders in accordance with Section 71 (1) 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz).
Up to 1,000,000 shares of the company will be repurchased, corresponding approximately to 1.88 percent of the company's capital share.
The repurchased shares will be earmarked to be used as cash for growth or acquisitions.

Shares will be repurchased exclusively through the XETRA trade of Deutsche Börse AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange). The share buyback will be conducted in compliance with the terms of trade detailed in Article 5 of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 of December 22, 2003.

The price the company pays per share is not allowed to exceed ten per cent more or less than the stock market price. The authoritative stock market price in this context is the non-weighted average price of the company's share which is determined by the closing auction in XETRA trading at Frankfurt Stock Exchange on the last five stock exchange trading days before the shares are acquired. In addition to this, the shares will not be acquired at prices that are above the last independently made sale or, if it is higher, the last independent offer to buy the shares in XETRA trading at Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Not more than 25 per cent of the average daily turnover with the CompuGROUP Holding AG shares in XETRA trading at Frankfurt Stock Exchange will be acquired per day. The average daily share turnover is calculated on the basis of the average daily trading volume in the relevant trading segment during the last 20 stock exchange trading days before the date of purchase.

The share buyback will be effected by a credit institute which will decide on the time of the share's purchase independently and uninfluenced by the company.

On March 31 2009 the Management started the last share buyback program for up to 500,000 shares which expired on May 27, 2009,
The new share buyback will commence on June 5th 2009 and will end December 31, 2009 at the latest. The company's Management Board can decide to terminate the share buyback early at any time.
