Frankfurt Stock Exchange, (ISIN: DE000A1K0227/ WKN A1K022) has successfully
completed a capital increase for subscription in cash from authorised
capital.

By making use of the authorised capital created by the shareholders' meeting
on 7 August 2013 the share capital was increased by cash subscriptions from
€11,108,584 by €2,613,784 to €13,722,368 for the issue of 2,613,784 new
bearer shares at a price of €1.90 per share. Shareholders were offered the
new shares by way of an indirect rights issue. Shareholders were also
entitled to place orders for additional new shares at the issue price when
exercising their subscription rights. The subscription period began on 28

Shares not purchased by shareholders during this period were offered for sale

all the requests from existing shareholders and the private placement, so

new investors, to whom I would like to extend a particularly warm welcome.
