MPC Capital AG proposes dividend of EUR 3.50

. Dividend payout ratio of 92% confirms shareholder-friendly dividend policy . Sales of EUR 213.7 million 6% short of the record level of 2006 . Consolidated net income of EUR 38.6 million . Outlook for 2008 changed due to increased investment in HCI Capital

Hamburg, February 28, 2008 - As had been expected, MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Capital AG, the SDAX-listed wealth and asset manager, fell short of the previous year's record results in fiscal 2007. This was due, on the one hand, to a large number of forward-looking decisions, which will start to contribute to profits only in the current fiscal year and, on the other hand, to income from the sale of fund properties generated in the previous year. The approved and ratified consolidated financial statements show sales of EUR 213.7 million, which is 6% below the previous year's EUR 228.4 million. At EUR 53.1 million, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were down 29% on the previous year's EUR 74.6 million. Consolidated net income for the year after minorities declined by 31% from EUR 56.0 million to EUR 38.6 million, which represents earnings per share of EUR 3.64 (2006: EUR 5.28). At their joint meeting, the

Management Board and the Supervisory Board decided  to  propose  to  the  Annual
General Meeting on April 22, 2008 to pay out a dividend of EUR  3.50  per  share
(2006: EUR 5.00).

The Management Board continues to project a placement volume of EUR 1.1  billion 

for the current fiscal year (2007: EUR 1,062 million). The planned increase in the investment in HCI Capital AG to 35.1% (previously: 15.1%) suggests that consolidated net income for 2008 will amount to EUR 52 million (previously: EUR 45 million). In conjunction with this transaction, MPC Capital AG plans to increase its capital from 10.6 million shares to 12.15 million shares (from authorised capital), so that earnings per share will increase from EUR 4.25 to EUR 4.28.
