Company Information

Frankfurt am Main (euro adhoc) - DVB Bank SE ("DVB") has signed an agreement
with the Mitsubishi Corporation, Tokyo, Japan ("MC") and the Development Bank of
Japan Inc., Tokyo, Japan ("DBJ"), pursuant to which MC and DBJ will acquire a
35.0% share and a 25.0% share respectively in TES Holdings Ltd, Bridgend, United
Kingdom, from DVB. The agreement is subject to required anti-trust clearance. 

TES Holdings Ltd ("TES" or "the Company") is the parent company of the TES
Aviation Group, a leading aircraft engine solutions provider. The agreement
reached with MC and DBJ follows an extensive strategic review of the business by
DVB, and the decision to seek new partners to join DVB to support TES' next
stage of development under the continued leadership of its Chief Executive
Officer Ashley Cooper. It is expected that the addition of two such prestigious
shareholders, each with ambitious plans in the sector, will bring new business
dimensions and opportunities for TES, as each shareholder seeks to leverage
their own relationships and infrastructure for the benefit of the Company.

Currently DVB indirectly holds 92.1% of the shares in TES Holdings Ltd. At
completion DVB will first acquire the remaining 7.9% of the shares, then sell in
aggregate 60.0% of the shares to MC and DBJ. Post completion, DVB will remain
the largest shareholder in TES Holdings Ltd at 40.0%, with MC at 35.0% and DBJ
at 25.0%.

DVB first purchased a majority shareholding in TES in 2007 and the Company has
subsequently grown from a turnover of US$20 million in 2007 to over US$100
million in 2011.
