HAMBURG, July 16, 2004. Hamburg-headquartered D+S europe AG (ISIN: DE0005336804 and DE000A0A8FU) today announced details of capital increases intended to permit issuance of up to 2.76 million new   no-par-value shares at a price of EUR 2.40. Up to 2.4 million new shares will come from the capital increase approved at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of June 9, 2004, and a further 360,000 new shares from a further issue approved today, which will come from the increase in authorized share capital that was also approved at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting.

The company will give present shareholders preemptive rights to acquire new shares at a ratio of 10:3, which means three new shares for every 10 old shares. As a result, the present theoretical entitlement ratio of approx. 10:2.4 has been increased to favor smaller shareholders. This was made possible by the willingness of present shareholders interested in acquiring shares to relinquish their preemptive rights if necessary.

Holders of convertible bonds issued in August of last year will also be entitled to acquire new shares created from the capital authorized at Annual Shareholders’ Meeting at a ratio of 10:3.

The period for the exercise of preemptive rights is to begin on Saturday, July 24, 2004, and will end on Friday, August 6, 2004. The expanded capital base will allow D+S europe AG to expediently implement the company´s growth strategy.

D+S europe AG will provide further information on these capital increases through its hotline number - 0800 / 3900 - 390 - daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

D+S europe AG is listed in the Prime Standard and with 1,800 employees in seven German states and ranks among the country’s largest outsourcing providers in the areas of customer process management, CRM and telemarketing.
