Touax Rail Limited is very pleased to announce the first acquisition by Touax
Investment SCA of a €56 million European railcar portfolio (including €26
million acquired this week and €30 million in the coming weeks). Touax Rail
acting as operating partner for the fund will manage the railcars.

Touax Investment SCA is an open ended Luxembourg SICAV-SIF offering to well
informed and qualified investors an opportunity to invest in an innovating
investment fund of real assets respecting sustainable development (freight
railcars, river barges and containers). The equity for the first Euro
sub-fund (ISIN code LU1336272270) is in place with 35 investors and 5.5 year
term financing of €54 million plus €18 million of VAT financing provided by
DVB Bank as agent and lender and KfW IPEX- Bank as lender.

Out of the €56 million portfolio, Touax Rail pre-financed and will sell €20
million of wagons, the balance being acquired from other sources.

The SICAV-SIF's objective is to offer a stable 5% annual return with low
volatility, while aiming for an overall objective above 8%. The investment in
real assets brings a diversification from traditional investment products and
provide a hedge against future inflation. Quilvest Asset Management is the
AIFM Manager of the SICAV-SIF, Société Générale Bank&Trust is the depository
bank, the transfer agent and the fund administrator and Deloitte Audit S.à
r.l. the réviseur d'entreprises agréé.

The SICAV-SIF launched an additional equity raise of €35 million to purchase a
second portfolio of
€55 million European railcars.

The SICAV-SIF also launched the USD sub-fund with a targeted equity raise of
USD60 million in order to finance a portfolio of USD150 million assets
(mainly new containers). Touax SCA through its subsidiary Touax Container
Leasing Pte Ltd will act as operating partner and has been mandated to
source, lease and manage the portfolio.

TOUAX Group leases out tangible assets (shipping-containers, modular
buildings, freight railcars and river barges) on a daily basis to more than 5
000 customers throughout the world, for its own account and on behalf of
third party investors. With more than €1.8 billion under management, TOUAX is
one of the European leaders in the operational leasing of this type of
equipment.
