Company Information


Hamm (euro adhoc) - September 24, 2012 - SMT Scharf AG (German Securities Code
[WKN] 575198, ISIN DE0005751986), technology and world market leader for
rail-bound railway systems for underground mines, has today been included into
Deutsche Börse AG's SDAX index. 

The reason for this modification of the SDAX index is the exclusion of Schuler
AG, which no longer satisfies the requirements for the index due to its free
float being too low. The inclusion of SMT Scharf AG was made possible firstly
through the positive trend in its share trading volume. Secondly, the market
capitalisation has risen further given a free float of almost 95 %. The share of
SMT Scharf AG has appreciated by 31 % to EUR 25.55 since mid-June. 

Christian Dreyer, CEO of SMT Scharf AG, regards the promotion to the index as a
further chapter in the company's successful capital market history: "We are
pleased by our promotion to the SDAX index, and regard it as confirmation of our
growth strategy. This is a further major step since our IPO in 2007, which makes
us even more attractive for investors. Accordingly, we are firmly committed to
our objective of continuing growth of sales and profit."
