Enterprise Holdings Starts Buy-Back Program for Corporate Bond
- Volume and duration of buy-back program is limited
- Goal to finance growth remains

The Executive Board of the Enterprise Holdings Limited (Enterprise)
resolved to start a temporary and amount-limited buy-back program for the
7.00 % bond (ISIN: DE000A1G9AQ4) that was issued on September 26, 2012. The
buy-back program is limited to max. 2.0 million euro. It will commence on
July 2, 2014 and end on December 31, 2014 at the latest, if the maximum
number of bonds is not achieved at this point in time. In general the bank
commissioned with the transaction may not purchase more than 25 % of the
average daily volume of the bonds at the exchange, at which the purchase is
made, in accordance with the applicable laws. Share buy backs up to 50 % of
the average daily volume of the bonds at the exchange, at which the
purchase is made, can be carried out and will be announced by the company
in the federal gazette on the day before the trade according to sec 9 of
the terms and conditions of the bond. Each purchase price of the bonds may
not exceed the respective independent prior transaction price and may not
exceed the highest independent offer price at the exchange at the time of
the purchase. The buy-back program may, if required and legally admissible,
be paused and resumed at any time. The Company reserves the right to sell
the corporate bonds again.

The goal of financing growth, which was intended by the bond issue, still
remains.

Andrew Flowers, Chief Executive Officer of the Enterprise Holdings Limited,
comments: "During the last days we noticed irrational and volatile prices
in our bond. Despite having enough liquidity and facing the bargain to buy
back bonds from the market, we could not do so. With the buy-back program
we are now able to react on very short notice. We still expect that 2013/14
will become the most profitable year in the company's history. Our balance
sheet remains stable and is still very solid. And with the measures we
already have taken to increase efficiency, we expect continuous profits in
the current fiscal year."

Update on Special Account
According to the terms and conditions of the bond, the issuer shall deposit
an amount equal to 50% of the issuer's estimated monthly net distributable
profits in a specially designated bank account to secure the bond holders'
position.
Based on the estimated monthly profits the company already credited
8,350,000 euro to this separate bank account and also transferred the first
interest payment of 2,450,000 euro to the bond holders on 26 September
2013. Therefore the current credit balance in the special account is
5,904,000 euro which includes the interest payment for 2013.
The special account's monthly development is published regularly on the
company's website www.enterprise-holdings.de -> bond -> factsheet.
