Greenshoe option

- Issue of 640,000 new shares resolved

- Gross proceeds for Ströer amount to EUR 12.8 million

The Management Board of Ströer Out-of-Home Media AG ('Ströer') resolved on
August 13, 2010, with today's approval of the Supervisory Board, to
increase the company's share capital by EUR 64,000 from EUR 41,458,238 to
EUR 42.098.238 by issuing 640,000 new common shares from authorized capital
against a cash contribution. Each of the new shares represent a value of
EUR 1.00 in the share capital of the company and carry full dividend rights
as of January 1, 2010. Existing shareholders were not granted subscription

The new shares will be issued against the partial exercise of a Greenshoe

have been acquired at the offer price of EUR 20.00 by Morgan Stanley in its
own name and for the account of all the underwriting banks. The gross
proceeds (before commissions) received by the company amounts to EUR 12.8

The new Ströer shares are to be admitted to trading on the Regulated Market
of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and with simultaneous admission to the
sub-segment with post-admission obligations, the Prime Standard segment.
Inclusion of the new Ströer shares in the existing listing on the Frankfurt
Stock Exchange is planned in the course of August, 2010.
