MARKETS

The same wariness and reliance on existing solutions during the past few years
continued in the first half of 2004, characterised by tamer-than-usual market
conditions in the IT services industry. However, investment activity showed signs
of recovery towards the summer, especially in the public and financial sectors.
This upward trend in demand continued during the autumn, giving a stimulus to new
project implementations. The pent-up demand for IT services which persisted for a
couple of years threw off its shackles and, compared with the first-half 2004
situation, markets showed considerable improvements towards the end of the year.


SYSOPEN'S BUSINESS

Demand for SysOpen's IT services during the first three quarters of 2004 remained
at a more subdued level than expected. However, due to the company's determined
service development efforts, business acquisitions carried out in the early
summer and a recovery in customer demand in the early autumn, SysOpen's business
clearly improved during the autumn.

Although operating profit for 2004 had not yet achieved the targeted level,
projects based on customer contracts concluded in the summer and autumn got off
the ground, generating considerable improvements in SysOpen's capacity
utilisation and invoicing rates towards the end of the year. Thanks to these
developments and the buoyancy in the software product business in late 2004,
SysOpen recorded very good profitability for the last quarter. The Group's equity
ratio and financial position remained good throughout the financial year. By
nurturing its competitiveness, SysOpen has maintained a solid basis for future
growth.

At its November meeting, SysOpen Plc's Board of Directors revised its corporate
mission, vision, service concept, goals and strategy for 2005-2007. According to
the new service concept, SysOpen will offer its services through the following
three business areas: 1) Enterprise Application Solutions, 2) Solutions Based on
Software Products and 3) Executive ICT Consulting.

During the fourth quarter of 2004, SysOpen made offers and contracts more briskly
than during the preceding quarter and promoted negotiations on IT development
projects with existing and new customers, strengthening its role and position.
For example, SysOpen concluded agreements with the following customers: Sales and
Marketing Professionals' Unemployment Fund SMKJ, Federation of Special Service
and Clerical Employees ERTO, Unemployment Fund for the Wood and Allied Workers'
Union and They's Unemployment Fund.


REPORTED YEAR-ON-YEAR TURNOVER

Consolidated turnover for 2004 amounted to EUR 26.2 million (2003: EUR 25.2
million, up 4.0 per cent), of which international operations accounted for 3.2
per cent (2.6 per cent).

Business acquisitions carried out late in the spring and during the summer,
coupled with the pickup in demand for IT services, contributed to some of the
improvement in consolidated turnover for 2004 as a whole.

Turnover by business area in 2004:

 Enterprise Application Solutions                       87.8%             
 Software Solutions                                     11.1%             
 Executive ICT Consulting                                1.1%             


TURNOVER BY QUARTER

Consolidated turnover for Q4/2004, EUR 7.7 million, grew considerably from the
previous quarter's figure (Q3/2004: EUR 5.4 million) and also showed a marked
year-on-year improvement (Q4/2003: EUR 6.5 million).


YEAR-ON-YEAR PROFITABILITY AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

Consolidated earnings before interest, taxes and goodwill amortisation (EBITA)
amounted to EUR 2.3 million (2003: EUR 1.9 million, up 18.9 per cent), accounting
for 8.7 per cent of reported turnover (7.6 per cent). EBITA 2004 showed a year-on-
year improvement despite the fact that fixed-term layoffs and staff reductions in
2003 contributed to the 2003 EBITA, and the 2004 EBITA was weakened, for example,
by substantial service development expenses charges as annual expenses for 2004.
All the same, these development efforts are paying off now that the markets are
perking up.

Financial income and expenses totalled EUR 0.6 million (EUR 0.7 million). The
significant growth in financial income for 2003 was due to the sale of
Create!Form Inc shares, held by SysOpen, to Bottomline Inc. Related to this sale,
2004 saw Bottomline Inc shares released from escrow and the payment of the
additional price paid to SysOpen in terms of Bottomline Inc shares in accordance
with the agreement. The resulting financial income recognised for 2004 totalled
EUR 0.5 million.

Profit before extraordinary items and taxes came to EUR 2.5 million (EUR 2.4
million, up 6.9 per cent).

Profit for the financial year totalled EUR 2.0 million (EUR 1.4 million, up 38.8
per cent). Earnings per share were EUR 0.23 (EUR 0.23).


PROFITABILITY AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE BY QUARTER

Consolidated operating profit before interest, taxes and goodwill amortisation
(EBITA) for Q4/2004, EUR 1,3 million, grew sharply from the previous quarter's
figure (Q3/2004: EUR 0.1 million) and also showed a multiple improvement on a
year earlier (Q4/2003: EUR 0.4 million).


FINANCIAL POSITION AND CAPITAL EXPENDITURE

With a positive cash flow, the Group's financial position remained at a healthy
level throughout the financial year.

The balance sheet total stood at EUR 19.3 million (EUR 16.1 million) and equity
ratio was 70 per cent (76 per cent). The ratio of net liabilities to
shareholders' equity, or net gearing, was -52 per cent (-68 per cent). Liquid
assets totalled EUR 5.6 million (EUR 7.8 million), with business acquisitions
paid in cash during the report period having a major effect on this fall.
Improved turnover posted towards the end of the year will contribute to current
assets only in January 2005. The Group has no interest-bearing liabilities.

The Group´s gross capital expenditure rose to EUR 1.6 million (EUR 0.2 million),
this significant growth coming mainly from the above-mentioned business
acquisitions coupled with in-house service development spending related to
strategy re-formulation and the related software purchases. The Group also
continued to spend on in-house software component engineering. All the related
resulting in-house research and development costs were expensed as incurred.


ROI AND ROE

Return on investment (ROI) stood at 23 per cent (19 per cent), while return on
equity (ROE) reached 20 per cent (17 per cent).


HUMAN RESOURCES, MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION

SysOpen continued to invest in human resources development and employee training,
both through bought-in training services and the company's in-house OpenCollege
training scheme. The working hours SysOpen spent on employee training were more
than double the industry average.

At the end of the financial year, the number of employees totalled 288, up 18 on
a year earlier, or 6.7 per cent (270). The number of employees during the year
averaged 286, down by four, or 1.5 per cent (290).

Reported employee turnover came to 10.5 per cent (13.2 per cent).

Employees by function, year-end 2004:

 Enterprise Application Solutions               76%     
 Software Solutions                             9%      
 Executive ICT Consulting                       2%      
 Administration and Management                  12%     
 International Operations                       1%      

Until the Annual General Meeting on 24 March 2004, SysOpen Plc's Board of

as the principal auditor.

ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTMENTS

In late April 2004, SysOpen acquired Done Information Oy's Software Solutions
business covering customer and software solutions operations both in Jyväskylä
and Helsinki. Through the acquisition, SysOpen strengthened its customer base and
presence in the Jyväskylä region while expanding the company's technology and
product offerings. As a result of the business acquisition and related
streamlining measures, 22 Done Information employees joined SysOpen's payroll
under the same employment terms.

In late June 2004, SysOpen agreed to buy the Kuopio software business of Yomi
Software Ltd based in Jyväskylä, with the result that 16 Yomi Software Oy
employees joined SysOpen's payroll, under the same employment terms, on 1 August
2004. This business acquisition has strengthened SysOpen's customer base and
regional presence in the Kuopio region, improving the company's competitiveness
in the manufacturing and telecoms sectors, in particular. As a result, SysOpen
has more than 50 employees in Kuopio.

In late October during the fourth quarter, SysOpen Plc divested its UK
subsidiary, SysOpen UK Limited, to Novo Ivc Limited, owing to changes in market
conditions and weaker business prospects. Following the divestment, SysOpen's
remaining subsidiary in the UK, SysOpen Limited, has a staff of three.


NEAR-TERM PROSPECTS

SysOpen's success has lain in its capabilities to respond to market changes.
During 2004, the company developed and upgraded its service and solution
offerings to meet changed customer needs. SysOpen is determined to continue these
development efforts and will specifically focus on business lines in which the
Group's profitability and business growth are expected markedly to exceed the
industry average.

SysOpen will remain determined to implement its new strategic plan for 2005-07,
disclosed on 23 November 2004, and to continue to strengthen its core business -
customised IT services - with notable growth areas including portal solutions, in-
house and third-party products and software components, support and maintenance
services and tools and methods for streamlining project implementation and
boosting productivity.

SysOpen will strengthen its current J2EE expertise further and invest in new,
burgeoning technologies and architectures (especially Symbian OS, .NET and
Service Oriented Architecture). SysOpen will diversify its business within mobile
terminal software, such as intelligent mobile software, and invest in the
development of wireless solutions. In addition to organic growth, business
expansion will be based on focused company acquisitions supporting the company's
businesses and active involvement in the industry's restructuring activities.

SysOpen is of the view that pent-up demand for IT services and solutions has now
thrown off its shackles, and expects companies' IT investments to continue their
upward trend during 2005. This view is supported by SysOpen's capacity
utilisation rates rising towards the end of 2004 and market research firms'
analyses.

Owing to the time lag between the completion of major projects and the
implementation of new ones, the Q1/2005 utilisation rate will not probably reach
the Q4/2004 level. SysOpen expects to report clearly higher H1/2005 consolidated
turnover and EBITA than in H1/2004. These estimates are based on current order
and bid volumes and, as stated above, the company's view of favourable market
developments.


PROPOSAL FOR DIVIDEND DISTRIBUTION

The Group's distributable retained earnings on 31 December 2004 totalled EUR
2,479,475.15, while those of the Parent Company came to EUR 1,326,040.20.
Earnings per share for 2004 were EUR 0.23 (EUR 0.23). SysOpen Plc's Board of
Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that a per-share dividend of EUR
0.11 for 2004 be distributed to shareholders (including the extra dividend, a
total of EUR 0.30). On 27 January 2005, the number of company shares (other than
treasury shares) totalled 9,262,914, coming to approximately EUR 1.0 million
(including an extra dividend, a total of EUR 2.8 million in 2003) in dividend
payment, as proposed by the Board of Directors.
