Company Information/Volume of transactions in 2011

Subtitle: Year-on-year growth of 40.2 per cent; strongest year to date for the
B2B financial marketplace

Berlin (euro adhoc) - 16 January 2012: EUROPACE, the online B2B financial
marketplace, significantly expanded its volume of transactions in 2011.
Transactions worth an aggregate EUR21.17 billion were generated on this platform
between January and December of last year (2010: EUR15.1 billion), which
represented a year-on-year increase of 40.2 per cent.

This transaction volume in excess of EUR21 billion made 2011 the strongest year
to date for EUROPACE. Despite the Christmas holiday period the fourth quarter of
last year was also the most successful in EUROPACE´s history, generating
transactions worth around EUR6.3 billion. Previously, the volume of transactions
generated on the platform in the third quarter of 2011 had reached EUR6.2
billion, topping the EUR6 billion mark for the first time. 

Building finance products make valuable contribution to impressive performance
EUROPACE is steadily growing its market share of German mortgage finance
transactions. Thilo Wiegand, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Europace AG,
believes there are several reasons for this trend. "The continual
diversification of the product range available on the EUROPACE platform is a key
driver of this success. Our strategic decision to scale up the offering of
building finance products on the platform has proved to be correct. These
products now account for a significant proportion of our total transaction
volume. In addition, yet more financial product distributors and suppliers
realised in 2011 that it is worthwhile using EUROPACE to sell financial
products." Together with its sister platforms - GENOPACE for cooperative banks
and FINMAS for savings banks - EUROPACE had raised the number of its product
distribution and supply partners to 165 by the end of 2011. Thilo Wiegand added:
"The crisis around the euro zone´s sovereign debt and currency boosted demand
for real estate as an investment last year. This further fuelled the impressive
growth in EUROPACE´s transaction volumes."
