SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 26, 2007–Sabre Holdings
Corporation (NYSE:TSG) announced today that it has entered into
memoranda of understanding with plaintiffs’ counsel and other named
defendants regarding the settlement of both a purported class action
lawsuit (the McBride case) and a purported derivative action (the
Holowach case), brought on behalf of Sabre Holdings stockholders. Both
the McBride and Holowach cases were filed in the District Court for
the State of Texas in Tarrant County following the December 12, 2006
announcement of the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among Sabre
Holdings and subsidiaries of Silver Lake Partners and Texas Pacific

Under the terms of the memoranda, Sabre Holdings, the other named
defendants and the plaintiffs have agreed to settle both lawsuits,
subject to definitive documentation, any applicable procedural
requirements under Texas law and other conditions, and the settlements
will be presented to the courts in which each case is pending for
approval after the transaction has closed. The settlements will not
affect the amount of merger consideration to be paid to stockholders
of Sabre Holdings in connection with the proposed merger.

In addition, the settlements will not affect the timing of the
special meeting of stockholders of Sabre Holdings to vote upon the
proposal to adopt the merger agreement, which is scheduled for March
29, 2007. The company anticipates that its stockholders will approve
the acquisition at the special meeting of stockholders and that the
acquisition will close on or about March 30, 2007.
