AG from a small niche player to an internationally positioned media group.
I would like to thank him for this, also on behalf of my colleagues on the
Board of Directors. We wish him continued success and hope that we will
stay in contact in the future", comments Bernhard Burgener, Chairman of the
Board of Directors of Highlight Communications AG, regarding Dr. Mantzke's
retiring.

Martin Wagner, who is also leaving the Board of Directors as part of the
streamlining of the Group's management, will continue to be in charge of
the TEAM Group in Lucerne, as was previously the case, as the Delegate of
the Board of Directors of the Team companies.
