									NORD/LB Group Presentation
February 2013

This presentation and the information contained herein, as well as any additional documents and explanations (together the “material“), are issued by

This presentation contains certain forward-looking statements and forecasts reflecting NORD/LB management’s current views with respect to certain future events.
These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, all statements other than statements of historical facts, including, without, limitation, those
regarding NORD/LB’s future financial position and results of operations, strategy, plans, objectives, goals and targets and future developments in the markets
where NORD/LB participates or is seeking to participate. The NORD/LB Group’s ability to achieve its projected results is dependent on many factors which are
outside management’s control. Actual results may differ materially from (and be more negative than) those projected or implied in the forward-looking statements.
Such forward-looking information involves risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect expected results and is based on certain key assumptions. The
following important factors could cause the Group’s actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied in any forward-looking statements:
        –    the impact of regulatory decisions and changes in the regulatory environment;
        –    the impact of political and economic developments in Germany and other countries in which the Group operates;
        –    the impact of fluctuations in currency exchange and interest rates; and
        –    the Group’s ability to achieve the expected return on the investments and capital expenditures it has made in Germany and in foreign countries.
The foregoing factors should not be construed as exhaustive. Due to such uncertainties and risks, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such
forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. All forward-looking statements included herein are based on information available to NORD/LB as of
the date hereof. NORD/LB undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events
or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to NORD/LB or persons acting
on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.

Cautious view. But expecting positive result for 2012.

     NORD/LB Group‘s fiscal year 2012 developed operatively well. Pressure on ship portfolio as expected.

     Due to the ongoing uncertainties in the markets the bank has a cautious view of the future. We expect the
     economy to slow down.

     NORD/LB is expecting to achieve a positive result for 2012 as a whole, but it will remain well below
     previous year’s very good result.
