Joint Ventures/Cooperation/Collaboration

Berlin, 13 June 2012 (euro adhoc) - Santander Bank - a branch office of
Santander Consumer Bank - and Hypoport AG have decided to expand their
collaboration further. Santander Bank - which provides retail banking services -
will in future use the support of Hypoport's EUROPACE technology to offer its
customers a product mix comprising its own loans as well as the extensive
product ranges of third-party institutions. This will enable it to deliver
appropriate financing solutions for its customers under a best-advice approach. 

Santander Bank already uses the EUROPACE platform to process its own property
finance business. Santander Bank and Hypoport AG are now set to expand their
existing business relationship further. Thilo Wiegand, a member of the
Management Board of Hypoport AG, is convinced of the merits of this alliance:
"Santander will significantly increase Hypoport's platform business and the
volume of services that it delivers as a technology leader and financial service

Mix of proprietary and third-party products; property finance solutions 
The EUROPACE platform supports Santander Bank's sales and aftersales processes.
In future, the bank will use the support of Hypoport's EUROPACE technology to
offer its customers a product mix comprising its own loans as well as the
extensive product ranges of third-party institutions. This will enable it to
deliver solutions for its customers under a best-advice approach. 
Having generated a transaction volume of some EUR21 billion in 2011, EUROPACE is
the ideal platform for the processing and brokerage of mortgages, building
finance agreements, personal loans and payment protection policies in Germany.
It therefore provides Santander Bank with access to all relevant product
suppliers in the market. 

Using Hypoport's expertise and further services
A team of financing specialists at Hypoport AG will handle the processing of
loan applications, thereby substantially improving the efficiency of product
brokerage for third parties. Hypoport will also perform all platform management,
including the management of third-party banks. Santander Bank and Hypoport will
work closely with each other during the rollout and subsequent refinement of the
relevant processes.
