SINGAPORE, September 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

        - Industry leaders partner to deliver energy-efficient Philips lighting
          solutions to Jones Lang LaSalle clients
        - Partnership provides platform to drive sustainable transformation in energy
          use in global commercial real estate markets

Royal Philips Electronics [http://www.philips.com ] (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), the global
leader in lighting and Jones Lang LaSalle [http://www.joneslanglasalle.com ], (NYSE:JLL),
the global financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate, have
entered into a partnership agreement to deliver energy-efficient lighting and energy
management solutions to all Jones Lang LaSalle clients.

This is the first time two leaders in the corporate real estate and lighting
industries are working together on this scale to change the way commercial and industrial
interiors are illuminated with LED
[http://www.lighting.philips.com/main/lightcommunity/trends/led/index.wpd ] and
energy-efficient solutions. The global agreement starts in Asia Pacific and will be scaled
up to cover the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Our partnership with Jones Lang LaSalle and our extensive portfolio in lighting
solutions will allow us to help drive the adoption of energy-efficient and sustainable
lighting solutions on a large scale in the commercial real estate space,” said Harjit
Gill, Chief Executive Officer for Philips in ASEAN & Pacific. “This partnership will
further demonstrate our capabilities to manage global lighting consultancy services to
maximize value for our customers.”

Michael Raphael, Head of Supply Chain Management and Procurement for Jones Lang
LaSalle, said: “Jones Lang LaSalle is pleased to partner with Philips to present a global
lighting solution to companies worldwide. This agreement has the potential to drive
environmental change while meeting corporate aspirations to move to LED and other low
energy options. Our partnership with Philips is an important step in helping our clients
to identify opportunities to lower energy usage, deliver more productive workspaces and,
in some cases, obtain carbon credits.”

“The agreement can offer energy savings of up to USD 100million a year for Jones Lang
LaSalle clients in Asia Pacific, changing the way commercial and industrial interiors are
illuminated. In Asia Pacific alone, Jones Lang LaSalle manages more than 70 million light
points for over 150 corporate clients. Given the global scale of the partnership, this has
the potential to drive significant energy savings as approximately 40 percent of
electricity consumption in buildings is related to lighting,” said Raphael.

Both companies will also provide consultancy on energy management with intelligent
lighting solutions and controls with new and existing customers.
