Company Profile:

Derby Cycle is Germany's largest bicycle manufacturer in terms of revenues, and
one of the leading manufacturers in Europe. In particular, global demand growth
for high-quality electric and sports bicycles, as well as the company's
advancing internationalisation in all European volume markets, are reflected in
the company's dynamic growth. Derby Cycle's product range comprises electric
bicycles, sports bicycles for leisure and competition purposes, as well as
comfort bikes for everyday and travel use. These bicycles are sold through the
established Kalkhoff, Focus, Raleigh, Univega and Rixe brands. All models are
developed and assembled at the company's base in Cloppenburg, Germany. These
high-quality products are distributed through specialist retailers who provide
their customers with professional advice and extensive service.

With around 550 employees, Derby Cycle achieved revenue of EUR 173 million in
the 2009/2010 financial year, 72.6 percent of which was generated in Germany,
and 27.4 percent abroad. Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) amounted to
approximately EUR 12 million. Derby Cycle sold a total of around 430,000
bicycles, of which 44,000 comprised e-bikes. As a consequence, Derby Cycle has
asserted a position of clear market leadership in the German e-bike market in
2010 with a 20 percent market share. The company forecasts revenues of EUR 220
million to 240 million, and an EBIT margin of 8 to 9 percent (2009/10: 7.0
percent) for the 2010/11 financial year that ends on September 30, 2011.
