AI Airports International Limited ("AI") received the resignation of the chairman of the Austrian Arbitration tribunal on 25th November. The tribunal was scheduled to begin the proceedings on Monday, 29th November, to decide the EUR 32 million case against Meinl Bank for excessive PMMA fees related to the AI IPO. The resignation was a result of an allegation by Meinl Bank AG that the chairman may be biased due to a potential conflict of interest. Meinl Bank raised the allegation earlier this week, just a few days before the start of the hearing. AI is determined to proceed with the hearings in due course. The remaining arbitrators, who initially appointed the chairman, will now appoint a new chairman and re-schedule the hearing. The procedure for the appointment of the new chairman and the re-scheduling of the hearing will likely take several months. A further update as to the revised arbitration date will be provided in due course. At this time, AI expects that the hearing will likely take place in spring 2011. end of announcement euro adhoc -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Further inquiry note: Investor Relations and Public Relations Metrum Communications GmbH Mick Stempel T: +43 1 504 69 87-385 M: m.stempel@metrum.at Michaela Lipa T: +43 1 504 69 87-341 M: m.lipa@metrum.at Branche: Real Estate ISIN: AT0000A053N4 WKN: Index: other listings Börsen: Wien / Third Market
