PESSTO, the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Valenti et al., ATel #4037; http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by the OGLE-IV Transient Detection System (Wyrzykowski et al. ATEL #4495), CHASE and BOSS (http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/unconf/tocp.html). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2012 11 22, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP).
