Vienna, Austria, 12 December 2014 - The management board of C.A.T. oil AG
(Company) (ISIN: AT0000A00Y78; WKN: A0JKWU) was informed by AB PCO Investment
Limited (Cyprus) (AB PCO), an investment vehicle of the member of the management
board Anna Brinkmann, on 12 December 2014 that the offer document which was
published by Joma Industrial Source Corp. (Joma or Bidder) on 11 December 2014
in conjunction with its mandatory takeover offer for all shares of the Company
is allegedly incorrect in two respects. On the one hand, according to AB PCO,
the Bidder informed AB PCO that the shares of the Company which are held by CAT.
Holding (Cyprus) Ltd. (CAT. Holding) - in contrast to the information provided
in the offer document on page 24 et seq. (English language version) - have not
been pledged. According to the Bidder's Cypriot lawyers' information this
statement was a misunderstanding ("Furthermore for the avoidance of any
misunderstanding or confusion we attach for your reference an extract [...]
which confirms that no security interest whatsoever or charge was or is created
over the shares of CAT Oil AG held by CAT Holding (Cyprus) Ltd. No share pledge
or charge of shares has been granted by [...] CAT. Holding (Cyprus) Limited
[...].").On the other hand, according to AB PCO, the Non-Tender Agreement -
mentioned on page 25 et seq. of the offer document (English language version) -
between the Bidder and CAT. Holding is null and void due to violation of
statutory law. The management board will inform the competent German Federal
Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) about this situation without undue delay
together with the request to further investigate the facts and to issue
appropriate orders if necessary. This Ad hoc-disclosure does not qualify as a
statement, or as part of a statement, by the management board and the
supervisory board within the meaning of sec. 27 of the German Securities
Acquisition and Takeover Act (WpÜG), which the management board and supervisory
board will publish within the statutory period.
