Hamburg, 2 October 2007. The wine-trading group Hawesko Holding AG
(HAW GR, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) announces that it is beginning a
share buyback. On the basis of the authorisation of the general
meeting of shareholders dated 18 June 2007 the Hawesko management
board has decided to buy back the Company's own shares up to a value
of EUR 3 million on the open market; this value corresponds presently
to approximately 1.5 % of the share capital or 135,000 shares. The
transactions will be made public monthly, after they have been
concluded, on the website of Hawesko Holding AG. The share buyback is
taking place for the purpose of cancelling the shares. In performing
the buyback an increase in the value of the shares is expected. This
measure is valid until 30 May 2008. Hawesko has already paid out a
total of EUR 7.5 million as dividends for fiscal year 2006.
