Hamburg, 11 June 2007: Thielert AG (ISIN DE 0006052079) intends to place between 1,100,000 and 1,300,600 shares from a cash capital increase. On the basis of the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting on 19 September 2005, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board of Thielert AG resolved today to increase the company´s registered capital by up to 1,300,600 shares (up to 6.5% of the current registered capital) without subscription rights.

The placing price for the up to 1,300,600 shares has been set at EUR21,75 which corresponds to a 5% discount based on today´s volume weighted average share price until 12.00 CET. The offering of the new shares by means of an accelerated bookbuilding is exclusively directed at German and international institutional investors. Following Thielert´s announcement on 28th June 2007 regarding the significant step forward in the relationship with Cessna and the success of the CENTURION engine, Thielert is now looking to pre-finance a potential serial production for two of its OEM clients. As a result Thielert is now intending to increase its financial flexibility and strengthen its balance sheet with the capital increase. The company expects net proceeds of around EUR25-28 million of which around 2/3 will be used to pre-finance the expected working capital increase with regard to the above mentioned OEM projects. Around 1/3 will be used to expand the company´s production capacity at its Altenburg and Lichtenstein plants.

The final number of shares and the proceeds of the issue will be made public in a separate Ad-hoc disclosure.
