3U HOLDING AG – Agreement with those suing for rescission

Marburg, December 12, 2007 – 3U HOLDING AG, which is listed on the Prime Standard at Frankfurter Stock Exchange (ISIN DE0005167902), and the shareholders who filed lawsuits for rescission and declaration of nullity of the resolutions adopted at the extraordinary general meeting on January 15, 2007 have ended their legal disputes with settlements at Frankfurt am Main District Court.

On the basis of the settlements the company and the suing shareholders amicably stated that the lawsuits for rescission and declaration of nullity have been settled. Furthermore, the lawsuits for rescission and declaration of nullity were withdrawn. Moreover, the suing shareholders have acknowledged the proposals in the approval process being pursued by the company. The company will publish the full texts of the settlements without undue delay in accordance with §§ 248a, 149 Section 2 and 3 German Stock Corporation Act.

The Board of Management assumes that the resolutions concerning the spin-off and the controlling and profit transfer agreement can be entered on the Commercial Register this year. With the entry of the resolutions on the Commercial Register 3U HOLDING AG will spin off its telecommunication services retroactively as of October 1, 2006 to the newly-founded 100% subsidiary 3U TELECOM GmbH. Thus another essential element in the strategic re-orientation of the company as a management and investment company has been implemented. With the spin-off of the telecommunication services greater transparency and a clear structure with regard to the control of 3U HOLDING AG and its operative units are being attained. At the same time, against the background of the conclusion of a controlling and profit transfer agreement with the newly-founded 3U TELECOM GmbH the tax position of the 3U Group is being optimized.
