7 05 LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS 01.0 SUPERVISORY BOARD REPORT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STOCK AND INVESTOR RELATIONS GROWTH STRATEGY BUSINESS MODEL AND HISTORY OF GRENKELEASING GLOSSARY LETTER TO THE SHAREHOLDERS FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS Dear Shareholders, Ladies and Gentlemen, We are pleased to report on another successful year for the GRENKE Group in this Annual Report. On our way to becoming the European leader in small-ticket IT leasing, we have made great progress and have been able to highlight the success of our strategy once again. Europe was the focus of our developments for 2007 and at the beginning of With the formation of four new franchise companies, our geographic expansion has been more rapid than ever in the history of our company. We also took over franchise partners in the UK and in Poland, thus completing a full development cycle in our franchise system for the first time from the formation of a company through a partner, to its development by the partner, to our takeover of the company. This document highlights the success of this system when it comes to tap quickly into new markets for GRENKELEASING. In both countries, the annual volume of new business under the GRENKELEASING brand has already exceeded EUR 10m. We have also reached the cell division stage in Italy, founded an additional location, and added another sales location in France, our most important foreign market, where we now have eight offices across the country. We are present in 19 European countries. Additional areas for expansion in the EU include Finland, the Baltics, and selected countries in southeastern Europe. In the next few years, we want to use the momentum that the GRENKELEASING brand has gained in Europe primarily to solidify our presence here. The high growth rates send a clear message: We have completed the start-up phase related to market entry in an increasing number of countries and are now beginning to profit from our growing recognition. This is how we have been able to increase new foreign business in fiscal year 2007 for the GRENKE Group, including franchises, by 27.1 percent to EUR 207.4m and experience significant growth in both our new markets as well as our well-established foreign markets, such as France.

8 06 LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS 01.0 SUPERVISORY BOARD REPORT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STOCK AND INVESTOR RELATIONS GROWTH STRATEGY BUSINESS MODEL AND HISTORY OF GRENKELEASING GLOSSARY We have also been successful in our domestic market in Germany: We launched new products at the right time to supplement our traditional leasing business. Thus, our factoring portfolio grew considerably while lease financing was burdened in the first half of 2007 by uncertainties regarding the German corporate tax reform, and then only saw subdued development in volume in the second half of the year. As the uncontested market leader in small-ticket IT leasing, we are developing with the market a larger market share would only be possible at the expense of profitability, which is not our strategy. Overall, however, we were able to increase new business in Germany for the GRENKE Group, including franchise partners, by 1.7 percent to EUR 301.8m in the fiscal year. Our clear focus on earnings is obvious in the above-average increase of the contribution margin 2 (DB2) which is the key performance indicator for our business: With an increase in new business for the GRENKE Group s leasing division, including franchise partners, of 5.2 percent to EUR 460.4m, we further expanded the contribution margin 2 of the leasing business by 7.2 percent to EUR 65.1m. The earnings power of the GRENKE Group also increased. Accordingly, the embedded value of our contract portfolio on a pre-tax basis increased considerably by 10 percent to EUR 320m and, including the positive effects resulting from the corporate tax reform in Germany, by 14 percent to EUR 293m. The foreign expansion of the GRENKE Group required investments in personnel and office space. Furthermore, the new countries must be integrated into our central IT infrastructure. This will temporarily burden our earnings before taxes, which amounted to EUR 44.8m for the Group in the fiscal year after totaling EUR 47.8m in the prior year. The result therefore stayed within our budgets and, accordingly, we reached our original goal of net income of EUR 30.5m before one-off tax effects. If the tax effects are included, net income increases to EUR 32.1m. Thus, we also had a very high return on equity after tax of 14.2 percent in fiscal year 2007, based on an equity ratio of 17.9 percent, which exceeded our target equity ratio of 16.0 percent.

9 07 LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS 01.0 SUPERVISORY BOARD REPORT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STOCK AND INVESTOR RELATIONS GROWTH STRATEGY BUSINESS MODEL AND HISTORY OF GRENKELEASING GLOSSARY GRENKELEASING therefore developed positively while remaining stable and solid. We are pleased that this performance is reflected in our confirmed BBB+ rating from Standard & Poor s. Of course we are not satisfied with the stock price, which could not defy the weak state of the international capital markets following the sub-prime crisis in the fiscal year. However, we are confident that our positive overall development and the convincing prospects for growth for GRENKELEASING will in the future be better reflected in the value of the stock. We thank you for your trust in us and invite you to join us in experiencing the future success of GRENKELEASING in Europe. Wolfgang Grenke Chairman of the Board of Directors

14 12 LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS SUPERVISORY BOARD REPORT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STOCK AND INVESTOR RELATIONS GROWTH STRATEGY BUSINESS MODEL AND HISTORY OF GRENKELEASING GLOSSARY 02.0 The financial statements were audited by the audit firm elected for the fiscal year by the Annual General Meeting on May 8, 2007, Ernst & Young AG, Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Steuerberatungsge - sellschaft, Eschborn/Frankfurt am Main. The responsible auditor attended the audit committee s meeting to discuss the financial statements and explained the significant findings from the audit. The audit committee satisfied itself of the auditor s independence. The accounting policies used in preparing the separate financial statements of GRENKELEASING AG were in keeping with the provisions of German commercial law. The audit of these financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2007 was conducted pursuant to Sec. 317 HGB [ Handels- gesetzbuch : German Commercial Code] and in compliance with the generally accepted standards for the audit of financial statements set forth by the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany (IDW). The consolidated financial statements and the group management report for the fiscal year from January 1 to December 31, 2007 were prepared in accordance with Sec. 315a (1) HGB and based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the EU. The audit of the consolidated financial statements was conducted pursuant to Sec. 317 HGB in compliance with the generally accepted standards for the audit of financial statements set forth by the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany (IDW AuS 200). An unqualified audit opinion was rendered on both the financial statements of GRENKELEASING AG and the consolidated financial statements of the GRENKELEASING AG Group. The Supervisory Board reviewed the financial statements presented to it by the Board of Directors and the auditor and discussed the results in its meeting on January 28, The auditor attended the meeting and reported on the main audit findings. Having duly conducted its own examination, the Supervisory Board raised no objections to the findings from the audit of the financial statements conducted by the auditor and thus approved and adopted the financial statements of GRENKELEASING AG and the consolidated financial statements of GRENKELEASING AG on January 28, The Supervisory Board concurs with the proposal for the appropriation of profits made by the Board of Directors. At the meeting on January 28, 2008, the Supervisory Board also addressed the mandatory disclosures pursuant to Secs. 289 (4) and 315 (4) HGB and the report regarding these disclosures. Reference is made to the relevant explanations in the management report of GRENKELEASING AG and in the group management report. We reviewed these disclosures and explanations, which the Supervisory Board believes to be complete, and adopted them. The aforementioned documents and proposal for the appropriation of profits made by the Board of Directors were distributed to us in due time by the latter. The Supervisory Board reviewed the financial statements presented to it by the Board of Directors and the auditor and discussed the results in its meeting on January 28, In the past fiscal year, the GRENKELEASING AG stock was unable to escape the crisis on the financial markets, despite the fact that our business performed as planned. In fact, the foundations of our business improved both in terms of quality and quantity. In terms of its structure, the leasing business is a growth industry in the European economy.

15 13 LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS SUPERVISORY BOARD REPORT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STOCK AND INVESTOR RELATIONS GROWTH STRATEGY BUSINESS MODEL AND HISTORY OF GRENKELEASING GLOSSARY 02.0 Based on costs per contract and the cost-income ratio, GRENKELEASING has significant cost advantages on a European scale compared with institutional competitors such as banks. Foreign operations are expanding strongly, some of them at high, double-digit rates. The new business divisions Factoring and Auto Fleet Leasing have also developed positively. We therefore share the disappointment of our shareholders over the performance of our stock. Despite the difficult refinancing conditions, the Company s refinancing is not at risk and has not become significantly more expensive. Due to our low-risk business model with a wide spread of minor individual risks and a highly professional risk management system which has a long-standing track record, we do not see any reason to change our assessment for the future. The Supervisory Board would like to thank the members of the Board of Directors and all company employees. The Group s continued success would not have been possible without their personal commitment in the past year. Baden-Baden, Germany, January 28, 2008 For the Supervisory Board Prof. Dr. Ernst-Moritz Lipp Chairman
