Docdata N.v.

Interim Notice DOCDATA N.V. First Quarter


    - The Management Board of DOCDATA N.V. (Waalwijk, The Netherlands) announces
the
following interim notice.

    General

    DOCDATA N.V. (Waalwijk) has closed the first quarter 2013 with a profit. 
Revenue of
the Group has improved strongly compared to the first quarter 2012 due to the 
further
growth of the activities of the E-commerce service company Docdata in Germany 
and the
Netherlands. In addition, the Technology company IAI industrial systems 
delivered several
large systems in the first quarter 2013. Due to the development of both lines of
business
in the first quarter 2013, also the operating profit and the net profit of the 
Group
improved strongly compared to the first quarter 2012.

    DOCDATA N.V. maintained its solid financial position during the first 
quarter 2013.
Per 31 March 2013, the liquidity of the Company resulted in a net cash surplus 
of over EUR
5.8 million (31 December 2012: EUR 8.8 million) with a solvency ratio of 50.3% 
(31
December 2012: 45.5%). The net cash surplus has decreased mainly as a result of
capital
expenditure for a further expansion of the capacity of the logistic center in 
Waalwijk.

    The solvency ratio improved by the net profit in the first quarter 2013, 
combined with

    a decreased balance sheet total due to lower working capital at 31 March 
2013.

    The management of DOCDATA N.V. does not give any quantified expectation 
regarding
revenue and results for the whole year 2013. DOCDATA N.V. will announce the 2013
half-year
results on Thursday 18 July 2013 before opening of the stock exchange.

    E-commerce service company Docdata

    The revenue of the E-commerce service company Docdata increased compared to
the first
quarter 2012, predominantly as a result of an autonomous higher transaction 
volume in both
the Netherlands and Germany. The number of processed transactions for the 
quarter has
increased to more than 13 million (first quarter 2012: 10 million). Due to the 
higher
transaction volume, also the operating profit has increased compared to the 
first quarter
2012. The effect of non-recurring costs was very low in the first quarter 2013;
this also
applies for the first quarter 2012.

    It is expected that the revenue growth will decline in the coming months. 
Towards the
fourth quarter 2013, revenue is expected to decrease as a direct result of the 
announced
reduction of our services to our largest client in Germany. The total impact of
this
revenue decrease will be visible especially in 2014.

    The E-commerce service company Docdata focuses on the further development of
its
position in various geographical markets in Europe. In 2013 the Group will 
further invest

    in capacity, IT, new services and solutions which improve efficiency.

    Michiel Alting von Geusau, CEO of DOCDATA N.V.: "We focus on the development
in new
geographical markets in Europe. Meanwhile we are successfully active in Italy 
and
Switzerland in cooperation with partners. We are one of the most important 
players in
Europewho are able to offer a cross border network and we will continue to 
invest in the
development of unique IT technology to service our clients even better and to be
able to
offer our platform as a separate service."

    Technology company IAI industrial systems

    The Technology company IAI industrial systems delivered several large 
systems in the
first quarter 2013, while none were delivered in the first quarter of 2012. The
revenue
value of the order book of IAI industrial systems increased to EUR 9.6 million 
(order book
as at 31 December 2012: EUR 6.7 million) due to a combination of new orders and
deliveries.

    As previously announced, IAI industrial systems received in January 2013 the
order of
Morpho B.V. in Haarlem (The Netherlands) for the delivery of two BookMaster One
systems
and three CardMaster One systems for the personalization of passports and 
identity cards.
These systems are able to fully personalise blank documents. These systems are 
expected to
be delivered in 2013.

    As a result of the increased order book, revenue and operating profit of the
Technology company IAI industrial systems in 2013 will be significantly higher 
than in
2012. The Technology company IAI industrial systems keeps focusing on winning 
new orders
in

    new and existing markets.
