Realisation of Takko

SVG Capital has today been advised that funds advised by Permira have signed an
agreement to sell their holding in Takko, the German based fashion discounter.

The value of this realisation for SVG Capital is £41.2 million, an approximate
net uplift (after a provision for carried interest) of £23.6 million (15.9 p per
share) to the December 2006 valuation of Takko.

Funds advised by Permira originally acquired Takko in March 2000.  Since then,
the fashion discounter has grown substantially and now has 1,050 outlets in 10

The transaction is subject to approval from the cartel authorities, with their
decision expected in August 2007.
