Hamburg, 24 October 2006. The wine merchant and trading group Hawesko
Holding AG (HAW GR, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) has announced today the
impending realisation of a two-for-one share split. The split will
consummate the resolution passed by the annual general meeting of
shareholders on 19 June 2006 to re-divide the subscribed capital of
the Company. Now, after the new partition of subscribed capital has
been entered into the Commercial Register, the calculated nominal
value of each Hawesko share will amount to Euro 1.50 (previously:
Euro 3.00 per share) effective from 25 October 2006. The total number
of shares will thus double to 8,832,992. The split should increase
the share's liquidity, allow for better trading and increase its
attractiveness for investors even more.

champagnes. Its sales channels include specialist wine-shop retail
(Jacques' Wein-Depot), wholesale (Wein Wolf and CWD Champagner- und

staff members. The shares of Hawesko Holding AG are listed on the
