Atticus Capital Clarifies Position in Deutsche Boerse

    Maintains Exposure to in Excess of 11% of Deutsche Boerse

    NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /CNW/ -- Atticus Capital today sent the following letter
to Reto Francioni, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Boerse (GR: DB1):

    January 8, 2008

    Reto Francioni
    Chief Executive Officer
    Deutsche Boerse
    Neue Boersenstrasse 1
    60487 Frankfurt Am Main

    Dear Reto,
    In conjunction with our recent updated filing with BaFin, we wanted to
clarify to you our total position in Deutsche Boerse.  This filing was
necessitated by an internal reorganization of Atticus' legal structure, and,
importantly, does not reflect any change in our views toward the company.
    Including both voting stock and shares in which we hold economic exposure
through swap, accounts advised by Atticus currently maintain exposure to in
excess of 11% of Deutsche Boerse. As you know, our BaFin filing only reflects
our actual voting interest of 7.65% in Deutsche Boerse.
    We remain committed long term shareholders of the company and are pleased
with the company's performance, ongoing cost cutting measures and share
