Press Release 2011.12.27.

Change of name Permiras AG to Ballmiras AG

As of 1st January 2012 Permiras AG will be renamed Ballmiras AG. Legal identity of the company will not change. The change of name is the result of avoiding a legal dispute with an international private equity company that has claimed danger of confusion regarding corporate and brand names. For the same reason Permiras AG & Sporteventfonds KG in Germany and Permiras Event Kft in Hungary will change its name at the same date.
