The German government agreed today (April 16, 2008) to pay Fraport AG EUR 41.9 million under the federal government´s investment guarantee for capital investments outside Germany. Fraport AG had concluded such a guarantee contract as protection against political risks for its equity investment made in the Manila project. The amount can be increased, when specific requirements are met, by a further EUR 3.9 million - and is being made with a conditional payback provision, oriented on the outcome of the legal proceedings.  Furthermore, the payment is subject to Fraport AG´s acceptance of payout conditions. This payment is expected to occur in three months.

The impact of this payment on Fraport AG´s financial results is currently being examined.

In addition to this payment, Fraport AG is pursuing further claims that are not covered by the federal government´s investment guarantee. Fraport AG and the joint-venture company in the Philippines are pursuing their compensation claims against the Philippine government at national and international courts.

Fraport AG already made a complete write-down on its financial investment in the Manila terminal project in fiscal years 2001 and 2002, and received a first payment of approximately EUR 27 million in 2006.
