closed the financing of 12 million Adecco SA ("Adecco") shares to be

commitment of the Jacobs Group: "By means of this financing tool we
have financed the acquisition of the first tranche of 12 million

to obtaining all regulatory approvals required. Jacobs Group is
delighted to support the value generation within Adecco for the
benefit of all stakeholders."
