Mergers - Acquisitions - Takeovers

Semperit successfully concluded the acquisition of Leeser GmbH & Co. KG
("Leeser") with the formal closing of the transaction today. Anti-trust
authorities approved the acquisition of the German profile producer by the
Semperit Group without imposing any conditions. 

With the acquisition of Leeser, Semperit strengthens its Segment Semperform
(Business Unit Building Profiles) as a complete provider on the profiles market.
It has taken a further step in its expansion on the growth market for building
profiles. Together the companies offer a future-oriented product portfolio in
attractive niche markets. Leeser perfectly complements the existing Semperform
business, especially in profiles for windows, doors and facades. As a result,
Semperit will be able to better serve customers and open up new markets.  

Leeser operates two production plants located near Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2014
Leeser generated revenue of approx. EUR 37 million in Europe, employing a
workforce of about 200 people. The sales focus of the company established in
1968 is mainly on the markets in Western Europe and the region of Germany,
Austria and Switzerland. 

Synergies should be leveraged by bundling know-how, especially in the field of
ultra high frequency technology. The Semperform plant in Deggendorf will
continue to be the Group's competence centre for profiles for PVC-windows. The
sites near Düsseldorf will keep their focus on moss rubber and co-extruded
gaskets for aluminium windows and facades.
