economic environment the group once again improves on all key figures.
Revenues increase by 5.1% to 73.3 million euros

euros, revenues in Germany are up by 1.6 million euros.
EBITDA increases by 9.7% to 15.3 million euros
Nemetschek increases the operating result (EBITDA) by 9.7% to 15.3 million
euros compared with 13.9 million euros in 2007. This corresponds to an
EBITDA margin of 20.8% compared with 19.9% in the same period last year.
The earnings per share improve by 18.3% to 0.69 euros.
High period cash flow thanks to good results
In the first half of 2008, the group achieved a period cash flow of 14.1
million euros, up from 13.1 million euros in 2007. The cash flow from
