It is important that all new KID shareholders realize that there presently is a very limited or thin market for the KID shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange due to the fact that the public float of KID is approximately only 2 percent of KID's outstanding share capital. As a result, until our shareholders claim and receive their KID shares and a more orderly trading market develops, the trading float will remain extremely small, trading levels will be very low or thin and, as a result, there may be extreme volatility in quoted or trading prices for KID shares. Until shareholders take up their KID shares and a more orderly market develops, traded or quoted prices for KHD shares may not be reflective of their value. We encourage you to take up your new KID shares now.

There are several companies quoted on European markets with similar names to our company, please make sure you are using the trading symbol KWG to correct identify your KID shares.

With our realignment, Silke Stenger and Gerhard Rolf have resigned from the Board of Directors of Terra Nova and joined the board of KID. We are also pleased to announce that Ian Rigg has joined the board of Terra Nova. Jouni Salo has resigned as President and CEO and has joined KID as Managing Director. Michael Smith, Chairman, has been appointed as interim President and CEO of Terra Nova.
