3U HOLDING AG (ISIN DE0005167902) announces the purchase of a wind farm
project development company. Today 3U ENERGY AG, a subsidiary of HOLDING
AG, and the shareholders of the wind farm project development company
Aufwind & ORBIS Havelland GmbH & Co. KG (A & O KG) and its associated
partner, the Aufwind & ORBIS Havelland Verwaltungs-GmbH signed a contract
to acquire the limited partnership and shares. The purchase price for the
complete acquisition of the limited partnership and the shares is EUR 2.0
million; and a later performance-based premium. With this acquisition, 3U
HOLDING AG reached an important milestone in its strategic goal to
accelerate the expansion of the business area Renewable energy projects.

The A&O KG is a joint subsidiary of the two established wind farm project
development companies Aufwind Engineering GmbH and the ORBIS Energie- und
Umwelttechnik GmbH. The A&O KG is currently developing predominantly wind
farm projects in the state of Brandenburg.

Within the A&O KG currently exists a wind farm project portfolio of up to
40 wind turbines and a total capacity of more than 100 MW. The wind farms
are currently in various stages of project development and should be put
into operation in the years 2015 to 2017. A wind farm project development
team with numerous references in the wind energy sector has developed this
wind farm project portfolio starting from 2009 and will continue doing this
after the takeover of the company.

Proceeds from the sale of the first wind farm are expected within one year.
It is planned to operate a portion of future wind farms within the 3U
Group.
