As a result of declines in the first quarters, the company will post a net loss for the year. SNP AG had initiated extensive measures that achieved considerable success over the remainder of the financial year. In light of this performance in the second half of the year with EBIT in the break-even range in the fourth quarter, the Executive Board will propose to the Supervisory Board and the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR0.08 per share be distributed for the 2013 financial year (previous year: EUR0.24 per share, calculated after bonus shares). SNP AG generated total consolidated sales revenues of around EUR23.4 million in the 2013 financial year (previous year: EUR27.2 million ). This corresponds to a year-on-year decline of approximately 14%. Both segments were impacted by this development, albeit to different degrees. Revenue in the Software segment amounted to approximately EUR4.8 million (previous year: EUR7.0 million ). Revenue from the SNP Transformation Backbone(R) software totalled around EUR3.6 million in the period under review (previous year: EUR4.9 million ), accounting for roughly 74% of total software revenues (previous year: 71%). Revenue in the Software-related-Services segment amounted to approximately EUR18.6 million (previous year: EUR20.2 million ). EBIT for the 2013 financial year amounted to approximately EUR-3.0 million (previous year: EUR2.9 million ). The measures initiated, chiefly in relation to software sales, achieved considerable success in the fourth quarter of 2013 in particular. Both revenue and the operating result improved considerably during the year. The upturn in the business situation is also reflected in the increased order backlog of EUR10.4 million as at 31 December 2013 , up more than 8% on the previous year's figure of EUR9.6 million . A forecast regarding the revenue and earnings development in 2014 will be issued together with the annual report. The complete annual report will be published on 31 March 2014 and will be available for inspection on the company's website at www.snp-ag.com under Investor-Relations/Financial-Statements.
