“Atos Origin communicates about its contract with KarstadtQuelle”

Paris, 9 May 2007

The outsourcing agreement signed between Atos Origin and KarstadtQuelle in October 2004 concerns the IT Infrastructure including the operation of the data centres and network services, mainframe services and server management, the operation of communication networks, desktops and helpdesk services as well as POS systems and the maintenance of main applications. This
contract runs until 2012.

Other statements in the press, which state that this contract or services within that contract will be taken over by other providers, are incorrect.

Atos Origin will continue to fulfil its contractual obligations and be a reliable partner as part of the dual vendor strategy agreed with KarstadtQuelle. In fact Atos Origin and KarstadtQuelle have signed further agreements in the last 3 months, which are on top of the initial agreement and have strengthened and extended their partnership.

This communication is done in agreement with KarstadtQuelle.
