Conclusion of a Business Combination Agreement with Terex / Increase of Offer
Price

16.06.2011

Düsseldorf, 16 June 2011: Terex Industrial Holding AG, Düsseldorf, Germany, an
indirect subsidiary of Terex Corporation, Westport, USA (together "Terex") has
undertaken vis-à-vis Demag Cranes AG, under certain conditions, to substantially
increase the offer price of its voluntary public tender offer submitted to the
shareholders of Demag Cranes AG on 19 May 2011. The envisaged increase in the
offer price from Euro 41.75 to Euro 45.50 per share is part of a "Business
Combination Agreement" signed today by Terex and Demag Cranes after the approval
by their relevant boards. The agreement ensures broad operational and strategic
autonomy to Demag Cranes even after Terex has acquired a majority interest in
the company. Moreover, the agreement includes detailed commitments for the
period after a possible integration of Demag Cranes into Terex Group. A complete
evaluation of the improved offer terms will be presented by the Management Board
and Supervisory Board of Demag Cranes AG in a supplementary statement pursuant
to Section 27 of the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (WpÜG)
presumably until 22 June 2011. Pending this opinion, however, the Management
Board of Demag Cranes AG is confident based on today's Business Combination
Agreement that it will in total be able to recommend that the company's
shareholders accept the improved offer.

The Business Combination Agreement will be published on the company's website
