Frankfurt am Main, Sept. 9th 2016 - Fosun and Hauck & Aufhäuser very much
welcome the completion of the acquisition of Hauck & Aufhäuser by the
leading Chinese investment group Fosun. Fosun acquires 99.91% of equity

"We are delighted that the European Central Bank and related financial
regulatory authorities have made a positive decision and support. H&A is a
strategic investment for us and provides us with the channel to invest in
major economies in Europe," said Mr. Guo Guangchang, Chairman of Fosun.
"According to our investment plans and leveraging our rich resources across
the world, we can effectively help H&A enhance its position in the banking
sector of Germany and the rest of Europe. At the same time, we can provide
investors from China and other Asian countries with the opportunities to
invest in Germany."

"With the support from Fosun, our long-term shareholder, we are fully
capable of building a bridge for Chinese companies seeking opportunities
for investment in Germany and the rest of Europe. Meanwhile, we can also
assist German enterprises to enter China's market. Hauck & Aufhäuser will
continue to leverage its excellent brand and independence to become a
reliable partner of our clients," said the senior management of Hauck &
Aufhäuser. "In the past few months, we have had a full understanding about
the opportunities to be brought about by the co-operation with Fosun and we
have already started establishing our business in China systematically.
Together with Fosun, we will increasingly take advantage of synergies which
are to be generated and will extend and enrich our investment portfolio
significantly."

In the past five years, owners' equity in Hauck & Aufhäuser increased
tremendously, laying the sound foundations for its further development. In
such fields as asset servicing and the business of managing equity
interests in small-cap and mid-cap companies, Hauck & Aufhäuser has
achieved growth rates in results higher than the industry average in recent
years. The private bank has also expanded its business to the key markets
in Europe. Since 2013, assets under Hauck & Aufhäuser's management has
