AD HOC PRESS RELEASE

Ströer to take over Goldbach activities in Poland

Küsnacht, 30.12.2015. Ströer is taking over Goldbach Group's successful Polish
online business. The sale marks Goldbach's full withdrawal from Eastern Europe.

According to Google, Goldbach currently has the widest reaching ad network in
Poland with more than 20 million unique users and more than 800 websites,
including 450 in exclusive marketing. Even in this prominent market position, as
a lone player Goldbach has found it challenging to bring sufficient relevance to
advertising customers in a consolidating Polish advertising market.

To boost the Polish ad network's now strong market position, Goldbach has thus
decided to sell its online business in Poland to the Ströer Group, one of the
leading providers of out-of-home and online advertising in Poland. Roland
Wittman, CSO of Goldbach Group, comments: "Goldbach has established a strong,
successful online business in Poland over the last two years. We are therefore
delighted to have found a strong and experienced company like Ströer to
safeguard the business in the future."

The Ströer Group is convinced that its purchase of Goldbach's Polish online
business is a strategically astute decision. "This acquisition is another
important step in the expansion of our multi-media market position in Poland,"
says Christian Schmalzl, COO of Ströer SE.

With this sale, Goldbach is continuing the strategy it began in 2014 of focusing
on its business activities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The transaction will be completed in the first quarter of 216. Both parties have
agreed not to disclose any details of the offer price.
