In continuance of its strategy of growth, the Rosenbauer Group signs an
agreement to acquire a 90-percent stake in the Slovenian fire fighting vehicle
manufacturer Mettis International d.o.o. At its plant in Gornja Radgona, near
Maribor in Slovenia, the company manufactures fire fighting vehicles for local
markets, superstructures for custom vehicles, and crew-cabs for fire fighting
vehicles. Mettis has around 60 employees and posted revenues of 6.4 Mio EUR in
2011.

"The acquisition of this stake in Mettis International is an important step for
Rosenbauer in terms of implementing our growth strategy. With the new base that
it gives us in Radgona, the transaction opens up additional growth opportunities
for us in Slovenia and neighbouring Balkan markets. It is also a cost-effective
means of acquiring additional resources and capacity that Rosenbauer will need
in order to continue its organic growth", explains Dieter Siegel, CEO of
Rosenbauer International AG.

Rosenbauer will be fully consolidating this new equity interest.
