Aberdeen Asset Management Announces U.S. And European Acquisitions

Commenting on the Artio Transaction, Martin Gilbert, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Asset Management, said:

"This transaction is in line with Aberdeen's strategy of undertaking infill acquisitions that will assist with growing our business organically. It will be of benefit to our North American business, a region we view as a key growth market for Aberdeen. The integration of Artio's operations will strengthen further our U.S. fixed income expertise, in particular the addition of U.S. global high yield and total return products, and will help to broaden and deepen our distribution network in the U.S."

Aberdeen is also pleased to announce today that is it has agreed to acquire a 50.1% stake in SVG Advisers (SVGA), a wholly owned subsidiary of SVG Capital plc (SVGC), an international private equity investor and fund management business listed on the London Stock Exchange. This business will be combined with Aberdeen's existing private equity capability to create a substantial private equity fund of funds business. There is no direct impact on Aberdeen's U.S. business.

J.P. Morgan Limited (which conducts its UK Investment Banking activities as J.P. Morgan Cazenove) is acting as financial adviser and corporate broker to Aberdeen in connection with the Transaction, and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP is acting as Aberdeen's U.S. legal advisor.
