Company Information

Vienna/Frankfurt (euro adhoc) - - 45.6 per cent increase in AuM 
- Acquisition of United Kingdom's BCM Group completed in late 2012
- Austrian asset manager Absolute Portfolio Management GmbH already acquired in
late September 2012
- Product range extended to include new products for institutional investors

In the 2012 financial year C-QUADRAT increased the volume of its assets under
management, held directly as well as indirectly through management and advisory
mandates, by 45.6 per cent from EUR 2.92 billion in late 2011 to EUR 4.26
billion. This clear increase mainly reflects two acquisitions completed in 2012.
The United Kingdom's BCM Group manages a total of EUR 883.2 million while the
Austrian firm Absolute Portfolio Management GmbH (APM) handles assets amounting
to EUR 404.9 million (as of late 2012).

C-QUADRAT completed its acquisition of the UK's BCM Group in December 2012. BCM
Group is a London-domiciled independent asset manager with a focus on credit
funds (convertible funds, high yield funds), multi asset class funds and fund of
funds. C-QUADRAT had already acquired APM in late September 2012. The asset
manager APM is seated in Vienna and focuses on absolute return funds,
microfinance and commodities funds.

Through these two acquisitions C-QUADRAT has not only significantly increased
the volume of its assets under management in its core asset management business,
it has also added further high-growth segments to its range of products. "With
high-quality credit and multi asset funds as well as absolute return and
commodities products, we can now offer institutional investors genuine added
value throughout Europe", says Alexander Schütz, founder and management board
member of C-QUADRAT. "Naturally, we continue to offer our highly successful
trend-following fund of funds, managed by ARTS Asset Management. Overall,
therefore, we are well-placed for the future as an independent asset manager."

absolute and total return strategies. The company was established in 1991. It
has been listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt stock exchange since 2006
and since May 2008 on the Vienna stock exchange. C-QUADRAT is well-known for its
