Eschborn. Techem, a leading global provider of energy billing and energy 
management services, announced that today it successfully closed a repricing of 
its EUR 450 million term facility which will reduce its interest costs. All 
lenders have approved the amendment to cut the current interest margin by 50 
bps on the existing EUR 450 million term facility. All other terms and 
conditions, including covenants and final maturity, remain unchanged. The
unanimous approval was received within a week after the proposal was made. 
The company had launched the repricing following a strengthening of the general 
credit market environment and the very strong secondary market performance of 
its inaugural notes offering in September 2012. 
"We are very pleased that we successfully reduced our annual interest costs 
further at very competitive terms. Also, we are very happy to see our amendment 
was achieved so quickly within the existing syndicate allowing us to maintain 
the strong incumbent relationship with our lenders. Together, this is a strong 
affirmation of our continued partnership with and support by our lenders," 
commented Steffen Baetjer, CFO of Techem.  
JP Morgan acted as Global Coordinator and Bookrunner and Credit Agricole,

Mandated Lead Arrangers. Rothschild was Financial Advisor to Techem.
