Berlin, April 30, 2015 - DEAG Deutsche Entertainment Aktiengesellschaft
(ISIN: DE000A0Z23G6) will publish its final figures for the 2014 financial
year today. These figures correspond in full with the preliminary results
already published on 30 March. DEAG continued to grow in 2014 and was able
to increase consolidated group sales from 165.5 million euros in the
previous year to 172.6 million euros, and the EBIT (earnings before
interest and taxes) adjusted by special effects from 8.7 million euros in
the previous year to 9.1 million euros. DEAG has also gained on the bottom
line: the group profits due to DEAG shareholders after taxes rose from 0.98
million euros in the previous year to 1.02 million euros in the 2014
financial year.

DEAG made a risk provision for reasons of prudence in the annual financial
statements, corresponding to the result of the breach of contract by the
co-organiser capricorn NÜRBURGRING GmbH (CNG) of the rock festival at the
Nürburgring, which did not come about. One-off marketing expenses at the
launch of the online-ticketing distribution platform myticket.de and the
risk provision for reasons of prudence result in a one time extraordinary
effect in 2014 of 3 million euros. In this connection, it should be taken
into account that DEAG has claimed compensation in full from CNG and took
out comprehensive insurance cover in the event of a breach of contract by
CNG, which applies up to a total of 7.5 million euros. The mega acts such
as METALLICA, MUSE and KISS will now be performing in the Veltins Arena auf
Schalke from 29 to 31 May 2015. In particular due to the unfinished
valuation of DEAG's festival plans and receivables from CNG and from its
insurer, the auditor has now qualified the certificate for the DEAG annual
financial statements regarding this one point only. Even if a slow start of
the new segment of festivals and open airs is considered, DEAG is expecting
in combination with its online-ticketing system this segment to develop
into one of the most profitable business units.

The successful year 2014 of DEAG is also reflected in the balance sheet.
Accordingly, equity increased by around 50%, from 29.6 million euros at the
end of 2013 to 44.3 million euros at the end of 2014, after a successful
capital increase. The group's liquidity developed particularly positively.
It increased by 136% from 22.9 million euros in the previous year to 54.1
million euros at the end of 2014. Deferred revenues, which are a strong
indicator of further business development, climbed by a striking 138% from
27.2 million euros at the end of 2013 to 64.6 million euros at the end of

DEAG' ticket distribution platform myticket.de developed very successfully.
The Executive Board of DEAG expects the high ticket sales volumes to
continue and is assuming between 4.2 and 4.5 million entrance tickets will
be sold by the DEAG group in 2015 as a whole. DEAG has prepared a solid
base and is looking at a growth spurt in combination with increasing
investment at the same time, particularly in the online-ticketing segment.
Therefore Executive Board and Supervisory Board decided to propose to the
AGM the retention of profits for the year 2014 and to continue with its
dividend policy again in the years to follow.

The Annual Report 2014 will be published at www.deag.de in the Investor
Relations section today.
