Hamburg, December 6, 2006 – Together with the selling shareholders and the
underwriters, OPEN Business Club AG set the offer price for up to 2,181,781
offered shares and up to 327,268 shares to cover a potential over-allotment
at Euro 30.00 per share. All offered 2,509,049 shares, including the full
over-allotment, were allocated. Open Business Club AG will receive net
proceeds of approximately Euro 35.7 million from the 1,350,000 shares from
the capital increase.

Approximately 7.9 percent of the offered shares (including the
over-allotment) were issued to retail investors. As the offering was
oversubscribed, purchase offers of retail investors not entitled to a
preferential allotment were allocated at 50 percent each. Purchase offers
of retail investors entitled to a preferential allotment were allocated in
full. Approximately 5.3 percent of shares allocated pursuant to the
preferential allotment were allocated to members of the XING platform and
0.6 percent to employees of the Company or its subsidiary companies,
business partners of the Company, its current shareholders or persons in
other business relationships with the Company or its current shareholders.
Additionally, approximately 0.3 percent of the shares allocated pursuant to
the preferential allotment were allocated to members of the supervisory and
management boards of the Company (family members of supervisory and
management board members did not receive preferential allocation).
