Graz, August 26, 2015:  The Schuler Group, part of the ANDRITZ GROUP and
headquartered in Göppingen, Germany, will further optimize its value chain by
the end of 2017. The measures are a continuation of the steps successfully taken
during the past two years to better adjust Schuler's organizational and cost
structure to the market requirements.

The measures adopted will lead to a reduction of production capacities with a
stronger focus of production on core competencies. All engineering locations in
Germany will be maintained.

The financial provisions required to implement these measures will amount to
around 55 million euros for the Schuler Group and will be booked to a large
extent in the third quarter of 2015. For 2015, Schuler expects sales to exceed
the prior-year figure of around 1.2 bn. EUR. The operating result before one-off
effects resulting from the adjustment measures is expected to reach the solid
level of last year.

As a result of one-off improvements in other areas, the impact on ANDRITZ GROUP
earnings in 2015 will be reduced to 15 to 20 million euros. The operative
measures planned are scheduled to be implemented by 2017 and are expected to
yield annual cost savings between 30 and 35 million euros.
