ots Ad hoc-Service: GRENKELEASING AG Correction

The sender is solely responsible for the contents of this announcement. ----------------------------------------------------- Baden-Baden (ots Ad hoc-Service) - Correction This correction of the english version of the announcement dated August 15, 2000 is being published because of an editing error on part of the DGAP. Instead of: "Profits are doubted in HY1 2000", the headline must read: "Profits are doubled in HY1 2000". The whole corrected announcement is: Profits are doubled in HY1 2000 GRENKELEASING AG. Germany's market leader in the field of small-ticket IT, posts pre-tax earnings of EUR 5.8m for HY1 2000 as per June 30. This corresponds to an increase of 91.5% compared to a figure of EUR 3.0m for the same period of the previous year. As already reported beforehand, the group's new business (i.e. the total acquisition costs of newly purchased leasing items) rose by 66.1% in HY1 2000 compared to the same period of the previous year, reaching a figure of EUR 80.3m. Foreign business and the Internet subsidiary Weblease have made superproportional contributions to this business expansion. After-tax profit rose distinctly by 198.1% to EUR 4.2m, compared to EUR 1.4m in HY1 1999. If one leaves out the dissolution of deferred taxes in connection with the reorganisation of the company prior to the IPO, the improvement in earnings comes to 122.9%. GRENKELEASING AG was aquiring the service provider and software developer haberichter.net GmbH, Gaggenau. Haberichter has specific experiences in the application of neuronal networks, what is of future benefit for GRENKELEASING with the automatic scoring procedure - especially abroad.
