*cyan: Reduced EBITDA in 2019 due to accelerated investments - Revenue
forecast raised for 2021*

*Munich, August 20, 2019* - cyan AG has adjusted its EBITDA forecast for
fiscal year 2019 and now expects EBITDA of approximately EUR 14 million
instead of the EUR 20 million previously communicated. This corresponds to
an EBITDA margin of approx. 40% instead of 57%. cyan has confirmed its
revenue forecast of EUR 35 million for fiscal year 2019.

The reason for the adjustment of the EBITDA forecast is an acceleration of
the currently ongoing investment program, which will be implemented with the
EUR 25 million received from capital increase from July 2019. In the course
of the investment program, cyan has already invested in personnel hiring in
the areas of sales, marketing and IT development in the current fiscal year.
Further investments in customer growth ("market investments") and the
research area are planned in 2020. Management is accepting lower EBITDA
margins in 2019 and 2020 for an accelerated growth path in the future, which
should have a clearly positive effect on revenues and earnings from 2021.

Management expects sales to grow to at least EUR 75 million by 2021
(previously communicated: EUR 60 million), with a target EBITDA margin of
approx. 50%.
