ZURICH, Feb. 9, 2012 -- gategroup announced today that it is seeking the 
consent of lenders to extend the maturity of its CHF 850 million senior secured 
credit facilities expiring in May 2013 along with other amendments to its 
documentation. The amendments would reinforce the Group's capital structure and 
long-term positioning and increase its operational flexibility.

    Consistent with management's prudent long-term strategy, gategroup is 
asking lenders to extend their commitments by three years -- term loan 
commitments to May 2016 and revolving credit facility commitments to May 2015. 
The credit facilities were put in place on May 31, 2007.

    The extension and amendments require majority lender consents and each 
extending lender will need to confirm its consent to the relevant maturity 
extensions. The Company will announce the outcome of the extension and 
amendment request in due course.
