SHANGHAI – AKQA will expand its operations in Asia and open a Shanghai office. Mr. Ho Chee Yue, who joined AKQA five years ago in Singapore, will help launch the new office and manage client relationships in the Asia Pacific region for AKQA.

"Our global clients are looking for greater coverage in Asia and China in particular," said Mr. Tom Bedecarre, Chief Executive Officer of AKQA.

"With the rapid approach of the high-profile 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, AKQA will be on the ground for our clients, many of whom are Olympic
sponsors, such as Coca-Cola and Visa," Bedecarre added.

AKQA has started recruiting across Asia Pacific for the best creative and technical staff for AKQA Shanghai. Mr. Ho and his initial employees will open the office in November 2006. AKQA Shanghai's first project will be to support the implementation of Coca-Cola's global Olympics initiatives
in China.

"I have been delighted with the warm welcome that AKQA has received in China and I am very excited that we are opening an office in Shanghai, one of the world's most creative and dynamic cities," said Mr. Ajaz Ahmed, Chairman of AKQA. "We look forward to delivering innovative work for our clients in China."

Earlier this year, the China Advertising Association appointed Ajaz Ahmed as an International Advisor for China Advertising.

In accordance with the laws of the People's Republic of China, AKQA has established a wholly foreign owned enterprise (WFOE) to operate in Shanghai. AKQA has leased office space in China's tallest building, the famous Jin Mao Building. AKQA hopes to contribute to the growth of the Shanghai economy by providing high quality services to meet the needs of both international and domestic clients.
