---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hapag-Lloyd AG adjusts its outlook for the financial year 2016 as the
development of the freight rates is significantly weaker than expected. The
revised expectation of the Executive Board is a clearly decreasing EBITDA
and a clearly decreasing EBIT compared with previous year.

In the second quarter of 2016 the average freight rate of Hapag-Lloyd AG
decreased to 1,019 USD/TEU, i.e. 245 USD/TEU below prior year period (1,264
USD/TEU in Q2 2015). The recovery at the beginning of July does not seem
sufficient and sustainable enough. Additionally bunker prices have
increased throughout the second quarter of 2016. After the potential
Business Combination with United Arab Shipping Company S.A.G. (UASC)
transaction related one-off costs will also impact the results in 2016.
