Release according to section 93 (2) Stock Exchange Act

AT&S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft hereby announces pursuant to section 93 (2) Stock Exchange Act to have been notified by Dörflinger-Privatstiftung (FN 182519k) and Dörflinger Management & Beteiligungs GmbH (FN 203507a) pursuant to section 91 and section 91a Stock Exchange Act as follows:

Dörflinger-Privatstiftung is the main shareholder of Dörflinger Management & Beteiligungs GmbH (hereinafter “DMB”) and holds 99.9987% of its shares.

AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft (hereinafter “AT&S”) is currently conducting a capital increase and envisages increasing its share capital to 38,850,000 shares by issuing 12,950,000 new shares.

In the course of this transaction Dörflinger-Privatstiftung, Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co KG and Erste Group Bank AG as Joint Lead Managers and AT & S have entered into a “Principal Shareholder Agreement” on 18.9.2013.

Main content of such “Principal Shareholder Agreement” is, inter alia,

  1. that Dörflinger-Privatstiftung waives its subscription rights relating to 783,237 shares and transfers such subscription rights to Erste Group Bank AG in order to facilitate a “Pre-placement” as described in the prospectus that has been published in the course of the capital increase;
  2. that Dörflinger-Privatstiftung transfers its subscription rights relating to 3,461,538 shares (corresponding to 2,307,692 new shares) to DMB with effect of 19. September 2013.

Consequently,

  1. upon implementation and registration of the capital increase of AT&S Dörflinger-Privatstiftung will still hold 4,594,688 shares and thus 11,83% of the voting rights based on a total number of 38,850,000 issued shares. Upon implementation and registration of the capital increase Dörflinger-Privatstiftung will therefore fall below the 15% voting rights threshold, but not below the 10% voting rights threshold and will presumably hold 11,83% of the voting rights in AT&S. This is hereby announced pursuant to section 91 BörseG.
  2. on 19 September 2013, DMB acquired subscription rights which entitle to the acquisition of 2.307.692 new shares in AT&S. After exercising such subscription rights (such rights have to be exercised until 3 October 2013 at the latest) and upon registration of the capital increase DMB is expected to hold more than 5%, but less than 10% of the voting rights in AT&S. DMB is expected to hold 5.94% of the voting rights in AT&S. Upon registration of the capital increase Dörflinger-Privatstiftung and DMB together are expected to hold presumably 17.77% of the voting rights in AT&S, thus more than 15% but less than 20% of the voting rights. The acquisition of such subscription rights and the consequence thereof is hereby announced pursuant to section 91a BörseG.
