Release of an announcement according to Article 27a Section 1 WpHG (German
Securities Trading Act) (Substantial Holding)

On November 27, 2013 DIC Opportunity Fund GmbH, Frankfurt am Main, Germany,
informed us that on November 27, 2013 its voting rights in DIC Asset AG,
Frankfurt am Main, inter alia exceeded the threshold of 10 % and on that

voting rights, 11.68 % (equivalent 8,009,633 voting rights) are to be
attributed to DIC Opportunity Fund GmbH pursuant to Article 22 Section 2
WpHG.

In addition against such background, DIC Opportunity Fund GmbH, Frankfurt
am Main, Germany, informed us pursuant to Article 27a Section 1 WpHG as
follows:

 a) The investment is aimed at the implementation of strategic aims and is
    not intended to realize trading profits.

 b) DIC Opportunity Fund GmbH does not intend to obtain further voting
    rights in DIC Asset AG by acquisition or in any other way within the
    next 12 months except from the opportunity of participating in capital
    increases for maintaining the proportional participation.

 c) Apart from the exercise of voting rights in the general meeting of DIC
    Asset AG, DIC Opportunity Fund GmbH does not intend to influence the

    capital structure of DIC Asset AG, in particular with respect to the
    equity-to-assets ratio and the dividend policy.

The exceeding of the thresholds of voting rights from shares in DIC Asset
AG mentioned in the voting rights notification of November 27, 2013 was
exclusively due to an attribution of voting rights pursuant to Article 22
