Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group Issues Statement Concerning Fire
at the Development Site of Mandarin Oriental, Beijing

February 10, 2009 - We can confirm that the fire at the construction site of Mandarin Oriental, Beijing, which was scheduled to open in the second half of 2009, has been extinguished.
All 64 Mandarin Oriental employees, who are located at an offsite pre-opening office, are safe.
We would like to express our appreciation to everyone who has conveyed their concern about this sad incident.
It is too early at the present stage to assess the full extent of the damage. We understand that a full investigation is underway and will take time to complete.
Mandarin Oriental has signed a long term contract to manage the hotel and has no ownership interest in the building.
