Waidhofen/Ybbs (euro adhoc) - Vienna, September 16, 2008. In the second quarter of 2008/09, the Vienna Prime Market listed Bene AG could acquire two further major orders. The full-range supplier for office and working environments from Waidhofen/Ybbs will furnish two commercial banks in Dubai (UAE) and Doha (Qatar) with high quality products.

On a first order base, Bene will provide the newly established regional headquarters of Barclays Bank in Dubai (UAE) with about 1100 modern work stations and furnish conference and meeting rooms. The total order volume amounts to about EUR 2.4 million. In the course of the regional expansion of the Barclays Bank more projects are possible.
