Krumpendorf/Wörthersee (euro adhoc) - The Austrian investment group AvW Gruppe AG has increased its investment in the Austrian fund company C-Quadrat Investment AG to 30.5 per cent. A compulsory offer is not required, since the two founders, Alexander Schütz and Thomas Rieß, concluded a syndicate agreement through their private foundations, and the AvW Group thus does not have a controlling interest in C-Quadrat.

The current value of AvW´s package of shares comes to around EUR 56.5 million. "C-Quadrat is a very important strategic investment for us. The company offers great potential for the future and will definitely see exciting and prosperous times ahead," says Wolfgang Auer von Welsbach, Chairman of the AvW Board of Management.

As of 26 May 2008, the C-Quadrat shares are not only listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, but also on the Prime Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

Further increases in the number of shares held are principally possible for all of AvW´s investments. The investment capital earmarked for this purpose amounts to a total of over EUR 100 million for the current year. About Auer von Welsbach Group
