CAT. Holding (Cyprus) Ltd. announces intention to sell part of its
shareholding in C.A.T. oil AG

10 December 2013, Vienna - Today CAT. Holding (Cyprus) Ltd. ('CAT.
Holding'), a holding company held indirectly by Anna Brinkmann and Walter
Höft, announces its intention to sell up to 6.0 million C.A.T. oil AG
('C.A.T. oil') ordinary shares, equivalent to up to 12% of the share
capital of C.A.T. oil (the 'Placement'). Prior to the Placement, CAT.
Holding holds 60% of the share capital of C.A.T. oil.

The Placement is expected to increase C.A.T. oil's free float to up to 41%
and increase liquidity in the shares. CAT. Holding has declared its strong
commitment to supporting C.A.T. oil's growth plans and remains committed to
enlarging and extending its existing EUR 100 million credit line as
previously stated in the capex investment plan. Subject to customary
exceptions, CAT. Holding and Anna Brinkmann individually have agreed with
Goldman Sachs International and J.P. Morgan Securities plc (together the
'Bookrunners') that they will not, for a period of at least 180 days
following completion of the Placement, make any further disposals from its
remaining holding in C.A.T. oil without the consent of the Bookrunners.
Simultaneously, C.A.T. oil has also agreed to a 180-day lock up under the
same conditions. A further announcement with details on pricing will be
made as soon as possible following completion of the Placement.

The Placement will be effected through a private placement to institutional
investors on CAT. Holding's behalf by the Bookrunners. The offer price will
be agreed by CAT. Holding and the Bookrunners following a bookbuilding
process, which starts immediately.
