LUFTHANSA TECHNIK TO CENTRALIZE COMMERCIAL FUNCTIONS (ENG)

     (The following press release from Lufthansa Technik was received by 
e-mail. It was not confirmed by the sender.) 
Lufthansa Technik's restructuring plans for its administration take 
on concrete form 
Lufthansa Technik AG intends an extensive reorganization of its 
administrative structures and processes. The planned changes are part
of the Lufthansa Group's program for the future, SCORE. 
"We have already implemented many innovations in Production and 
optimized processes there, and now we intend similar improvements in 
administration," said August Wilhelm Henningsen, Chairman of the 
Executive Board of Lufthansa Technik. "Modern, efficient 
administration is an important condition for the future international
growth of Lufthansa Technik AG." 
Since the spring of 2012, nearly 200 experts from all areas of 
Lufthansa Technik have been involved in a SCORE project called 
NETwork in which all structures and processes were critically 
assessed. Numerous proposals for improving processes were tested for 
feasibility. The result is an extensive package of more than 200 
individual measures, each with the goal of organizing administration 
more efficiently and responding more effectively to customer needs. 
Business administration functions will be centralized, purchasing 
activities will be bundled in competence centers, shared services 
will be implemented more strongly in the personnel area, and stronger
regionalization in sales will aim for better proximity to the 
customer. 
The changes in administration in Germany will be effected by the year
2015. 650 positions will likely be eliminated. This reorganization 
will be implemented in a socially responsible manner. 
Semi-retirement, early retirement and severance agreements are being 
offered on a voluntary basis. In addition, positions that become 
vacant through natural attrition will not be filled. 
Hamburg-based Lufthansa Technik AG, a world market leader in the 
international aircraft maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) market, 
has already trimmed its production processes very successfully and 
developed innovative products in the past years. These measures have 
allowed the company to tap new market potential. For example, within 
the SCORE program the costs of engine overhaul are been reduced by 
about 20 percent. 
Together with its subsidiaries Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services, 
Lufthansa Technical Training, Lufthansa Technik Maintenance 
International and Lufthansa LEOS, Lufthansa Technik employs a total 
of 13,070 people at its German sites in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich 
and Berlin. 
Lufthansa Technik: 
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and 
associates and over 26,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading
manufacturer-independent providers of technical services for the 
aviation industry. Its portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of 
services for commercial aircraft: maintenance, repair, overhaul, 
modification and conversion, engines and components.
