EquityStory AG remains on course for growth during Q3 2010
Nine-month results show 25 per cent growth against the previous year

Munich - November 26, 2010

EquityStory AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) continue their positive development in
terms of revenues and profits for Q3 2010. For the months from July to
September 2010 group revenue is EUR 2.209 million, representing an increase
of 12 percent against Q3 of the previous year. The EBIT, according to IFRS,
grew by 37 percent to EUR .499 million. The group's net profit is EUR .338
million. This represents a profit of EUR 0.28 per share according to DVFA /
SG (the German Association of Financial Analysis and Asset Management /
Schmalenbach Society).

The first nine months of 2010 show the following: Revenues amount to EUR
6.700 million, EBIT aggregates to EUR 1.410 million and the group surplus
is EUR .953 million. The profit per share according to DVFA / SG is EUR

Both the Regulatory Information & News and Products & Services segments
contributed to the increase in revenue and result. The slight decrease in
regulatory announcements continued, while the market share remained stable.
However, the total volume of corporate news was increased, due to a higher
number of non-regulatory news.

Achim Weick, EquityStory AG's CEO stated: 'The Q3 results confirm the
positive annual trend. Our growth areas, Online Corporate Communications
and international Online Investor Relations business, continue to be the
focus of our work, and promise high growth rates in the coming years. We
feel very confident about our forecast given at the beginning of this

For the fiscal year 2010 the management expects a revenue increase of up to
10 percent, accompanied by a disproportionately positive EBIT development
for the EquityStory group.

EquityStory's management will comment on the company results in today's
conference call from 11.00 am (CET) to be transmitted live via internet at
