UOB (Malaysia) Gives Away Six (6) Naza Sutera Cars

Lucky winners of "UOB Drive Home a Car Contest" unveiled

Kuala Lumpur, 28 April 2008 - United Overseas Bank (Malaysia) Bhd [UOB (Malaysia)] today rewarded six lucky customers with a brand new Naza Sutera car each in its UOB Drive Home a Car Contest. The customers were announced as the Contest's monthly winners in a prize presentation ceremony earlier where they received mock keys from Mr Tay Han Chong, Senior Head of Personal Financial Services Division of UOB (Malaysia).

Ms Taryn Foo, First Vice President and Head of Wealth Management, UOB (Malaysia), said during the ceremony, "Some of our customers feel that the current market condition is unfavourable for their investment needs. Thus they may want to place their funds into deposit accounts until an investment opportunity arises. With that need in mind, we developed this UOB Drive Home a Car Contest as a value-added incentive for our customers to do so."

She further added, "We received encouraging response for this Contest, and with our customers' support, we witnessed a positive jump in the number of Savings Plus and i-Accounts opened with UOB for the past six (6) months."

Madam Jean Ler Leong Taen, one of the six monthly winners, was clearly excited with her good fortune to win a car when she said, "I was stunned when UOB called and informed me that I have just won a car! It was a lucky win as I only entered the contest two days before it ended."

Another winner, Mr Koh Chon Wai, quipped, "It feels great to be rewarded for saving my hard-earned money. This is the best investment I had made so far! Thanks to UOB (Malaysia) for having such great contest, and I will definitely continue to support the bank. I'm so pleased with my win that I have introduced friends and family members to UOB (Malaysia)."

Besides the six Naza Sutera cars presented to the monthly winners, 20 Phillips 32" LCD TVs and numerous portable mini fridges were given away to reward deposit customers for their continuous support towards UOB (Malaysia).

The customers just had to sign up or deposit a minimum amount of RM5,000 into UOB i-Account or Savings Plus to participate. The UOB Drive Home a Car Contest ran from 18 September 2007 till 31 March 2008.
