DIC Asset AG
Frankfurt am Main
ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4
Securities Code No.: A1X3XX

Release according to Article 26 Section 1 WpHG (German Securities Trading
Act) with the objective of Europe-wide distribution

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

On November 27, 2013 DIC Opportunistic 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
day amounted to 13.97 % (equivalent 9,581,735 voting rights). Of these
voting rights, 4.92 % (equivalent 3,375,667 voting rights) are to be
attributed to DIC Opportunistic GmbH pursuant to Article 22 Section 2 WpHG.

In addition against such background, DIC Opportunistic 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 Opportunistic 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 Opportunistic GmbH does not intend to influence the
    composition of the administrative, management and/or the supervisory
    bodies of DIC Asset AG.

 d) DIC Opportunistic GmbH does not intend a substantial change of the
    capital structure of DIC Asset AG, in particular with respect to the
    equity-to-assets ratio and the dividend policy.

The acquisition of voting rights was partly executed by a contribution in
kind by DIC Opportunistic GmbH in course of the capital increase against
contribution in kind of DIC Asset AG. Concerning this part of voting rights
acquired, therefore, equity capital was used. The remaining voting rights
are to be attributed to DIC Opportunistic GmbH pursuant to Article 22
Section 2 WpHG. Therefore, concerning the source of funds for the
acquisition of these further voting rights in DIC Asset AG neither debt nor
equity capital was used.
