    Embargoed Release: 07:00hrs Tuesday 18 January 2005

    SOPHEON PLC

    (`Sopheon' or `the Company')

    TRADING UPDATE

    Sopheon plc, the international provider of solutions that improve the return
    from innovation and product development, announces that the Company's EBITDA
    result for the final quarter of 2004 is expected to be positive, and that the
    consolidated annual EBITDA loss for 2004 is expected to be in line with broker
    forecasts of £1.15m (2003 - £4.07m). Sales growth over the prior year achieved
    in Sopheon's continuing software business is substantial, however, total
    reported revenues for 2004 are expected to be moderately below broker
    forecasts. This expectation is due in part to the weakness in the dollar during
    the later stages of the year. Nevertheless the overall effect of the weak
    dollar is expected to have been marginally positive, due to the fact that a
    large portion of Sopheon's costs are dollar denominated.

    As indicated in earlier announcements, the final quarter performance was
    dependent on completion of major sales in December. Sopheon was successful in
    signing three such orders. Each customer is a global leader in its respective
    industry and a widely recognized name, and two of the transactions included
    license fees of around $600,000. Apart from their financial and brand value,
    these deals underpin Sopheon's credentials in two industries with significant
    identified potential: fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and financial services.
    Several other transactions were concluded during the quarter, primarily in the
    chemicals sector, where we already have a substantial base of customers. We
    continue to focus on pipeline creation and extending business with existing
    customers. An excellent example of the latter is BASF. Developed as a customer
    through one of Sopheon's distribution partners, BASF began implementation of
    Accolade a year ago. Our relationship with this chemicals industry leader has
    grown rapidly since then, and BASF is now one of four Sopheon clients that have
    contracted for 2000 or more Accolade seat-licenses.

    Sopheon made important progress in 2004 in positioning itself for the longer
    term by securing partnerships on two fronts: strategic alliances in key
    markets, and distribution partners in geographical areas outside the Company's
    existing sphere of operations. As a result of this effort we are part of
    Microsoft's Collaborative Product Development initiative. Since announcement of
    the program in October, Microsoft and Sopheon have been working together to
    enhance and promote the integration of their technologies. To enable
    development efforts arising from this and other initiatives, and with support
    from Microsoft, Sopheon implemented a controlled expansion in R&D resources,
    recruiting into our Denver development center. During the year Sopheon also
    undertook a successful balance sheet restructuring, and continues to have
    access to the group's €10m equity line, of which over 90% remains untapped.

    Financial expectations noted above are subject to the completion of the
    year-end financial close process. Consistent with prior years, Sopheon plans to
    issue its 2004 preliminary results around the end of March.

    Sopheon's Chairman, Barry Mence said:

    'Achieving a positive quarterly result is an important milestone for Sopheon.
    We are focused on the challenge of maintaining this momentum into the first
    half of 2005, encouraged by our recent successes and the opportunities that are
    building through our strategic relationships.'

    Dit zinnetje zal er wel het meeste uitspringen bij de reakties van analisten en beleggingsbladen: however, total reported revenues for 2004 are expected to be moderately below broker forecasts. This expectation is due in part to the weakness in the dollar during the later stages of the year. Nevertheless the overall effect of the weak dollar is expected to have been marginally positive, due to the fact that a large portion of Sopheon's costs are dollar denominated.

    Dit ziet er zeer goed uit, een positief 4e kwartaal, dat hadden alle negatievelingen zeker niet verwacht en geen aanspraak meer op GEM. Het belangrijkste vind ik nog dat ze al 4 grote klanten hebben met minimaal 2000 seats!!!!! Ze noemen nu ook voor het eerst bedragen bij die transacties! 600.000 dollar yes yesyes..........

    Groetjes en succes allen

    Ik was er niet eerder aan toe, maar uiteraard ook mijn aanbeveling,
    - inmiddels de 30e en zeker niet de laatste toch (?)- voor het plaatsen van dit perspectiefvolle bericht. Voor allen die vertrouwen hebben gehouden;
    Wat een mooie bevestiging van het feit dat het definitieve keerpunt is/lijkt bereikt en nu duidelijk is gemaakt aan het grote beleggers-publiek. Bovendien vandaag nog een nieuwe order erbij en gezien de vele aanwijzingen / geruchten zal dit niet de laatste zijn, maar één in de rij van... "Klasse verloochent zich niet" en de koers zal de hierbij behorende richting, mogelijk langzaam maar toch zeker weten te vinden!
    Een groet van pevri
