Berlin (euro adhoc) - Press release

Volume of transactions in Q2 2012

EUROPACE: Almost E15 billion in first half of 2012
Increase in usage numbers is reflected in transaction volume

Berlin, 18 July 2012: Transactions with a combined value of E7.33 billion were
processed on the Europace financial marketplace platform in the second quarter
of 2012. The increase of 57 per cent on the same period of last year is
attributable to a significant increase in the number of transactions involving
mortgage finance and building finance products. 

"The original division of functions between financial product distributors and
product suppliers has become increasingly blurred. Banks, insurance companies
and building finance associations are increasingly taking advantage of the
opportunities offered by Europace to tailor their financing transactions
flexibly in accordance with their own specific needs, objectives and policies.
The primary consideration is to deliver what the customer wants," commented
Thilo Wiegand, a member of Europace AG's Management Board. This leads to
increased usage of the marketplace. The fact that financing terms for domestic
properties in Germany remain extremely favourable is also driving up the level
of business. The volume of transactions processed on Europace increased by 57
per cent on the same period of last year to a total of E7.33 billion (Q2 2011:
E4.63 billion). In the first half of 2012, the same volume of business has been
brokered via Europace as during the entire year in 2010. 

Compared to the same period in 2011, the volume of mortgage finance transactions
increased by 56 per cent to E5.84 billion (Q2 2011: E3.67 billion). The volume
of personal loan transactions was down by around E30 million on the same period
of the previous year at E0.28 billion (Q2 2011: E0.31 billion). Building finance
products contributed E1.21 billion to the total volume. In comparison with the
same period of 2011, the volume of building finance transactions increased by 93
per cent (Q1 2011: E0.65 billion).
