In addition against such background, DIC Beteiligungsgesellschaft

    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.

    substantial change of the capital structure of DIC Asset AG, in

One part of the voting rights was acquired by the exercise of subscription
rights in connection with the capital increase against cash contribution of
