EQS COCKPIT ASIA starts successfully
Important milestone for further growth in Asia

Munich / Hong Kong - February 12, 2015

The EQS Group AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) has reached an important milestone towards becoming a leading premium provider for digital investor relations in Asia. Beginning today, EQS TodayIR offers EQS COCKPIT ASIA, the first integrated online communications solution for stock-listed companies in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Singapore, and Taiwan.

The EQS COCKPIT is a web-based platform that enables companies' and agencies' investor relations managers to manage their multifaceted communications tasks comfortably and efficiently. An essential component is the fulfilment disclosure duties.

The EQS COCKPIT ASIA was tailored specifically to the needs and tasks of IR professionals in Asia. Regulatory disclosures, financial news and press releases are automatically fed into the systems of world's major financial news agencies as well as that of Asian vendor and databases. Disclosure and news are disseminated in either English or Chinese, in traditional or simplified Chinese characters and are posted on Asian and international financial portals.

Achim Weick, CEO of EQS Group AG: 'The launch of EQS COCKPIT ASIA will further accelerate our growth. For the first time, listed companies in Asia can benefit from our one-stop shop for digital investor relations. Complex communications with all stakeholders can easily be managed now.'

In developing the integrated CONTACT MANAGER, EQS placed a premium on streamlining the management of contacts and address lists for the compilation of mailing lists for individual notification services. Vital processes are automated through the integration of service functions on the client's website with a simultaneous link to EQS COCKPIT.

'The optimization and automation of processes offer exceptional client benefits, which gives us in competitive advantage in acquiring IPO candidates,' says Marcus Sultzer, EQS Group AG's CEO for Asia-Pacific. 'We save IR professionals time and money while also eliminating potential sources for error.'

The Asian IPO market is one of the most dynamic in the world, not least due to the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect Program's further opening China to foreign investors. The EQS Group AG entered the Asian market at the start of 2013 and significantly expanded its Asian presence through its acquisition of TodayIR in April 2014. Today, EQS TodayIR boasts over 400 clients, making it a leading investor relations service provider in the Asian market.
