Hapag-Lloyd launches notes offering

Volume of EUR 150 million / Part of the proceeds will be used for the early
redemption of the USD bond

Hapag-Lloyd AG, a leading global container shipping company, today launched
a euro bond offering with a volume of EUR 150 million and a maturity of
five years. Part of the proceeds, initially amounting to USD 50 million
converted (approx. EUR 47 million), will be used for the early redemption
of US dollar notes due in autumn 2017. The US dollar notes originally had a
volume of USD 250 million, half of which was already repaid in 2015. The
remaining proceeds of the new euro bond will be used for general corporate
purposes (including further repayment of existing indebtedness).

Hapag-Lloyd is one of the leading companies in the industry and generated a
positive net result in the third quarter of 2016 and EBITDA of EUR 381.3
million in the first nine months of 2016.

The new euro bond will be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. All of
Hapag-Lloyd AG's existing bonds are quoted above par. The Company's shares,
which were listed on the stock exchange in November 2015, are also quoted
higher than its issue price.
