Mergers - Acquisitions - Takeovers

Linz, 14.08.2014. As announced on June 6, 2014, S&T AG (www.snt.at) has
concluded its purchase of a 48% stake in Affair OOO, Moscow. Subsequent to
receipt of the authorizations by the antitrust authorities responsible for it,
the closing was undertaken today.  S&T holds an option to acquire a further
three percent of the voting rights in Affair. This has caused the latter to be
fully consolidated in the consolidated financial statements of S&T AG. The
acquisition of the shares in Affair was jointly with the local management. This
caused the price of purchasing the stake to come to EUR 5.87 million for S&T.

Affair and its subsidiaries employ some 600 persons, of which 400 are engineers.
The group has been active for more than 20 years in the areas of software
development and industrial and energy automation. Comprised in the acquisition
are smart energy solutions. This, in turn, gives rise to synergies with
ubitronix solution GmbH, which was also recently acquired by S&T AG. 

The acquisition is set to still yield sales in financial year 2014 of more than
EUR 20 million. This increase confirms the accuracy of S&T's plans to achieve at
least EUR 375 million in sales for the year.  The strong business being done by
the Group is leading S&T's management to maintain its forecast of attaining
consolidated earnings of more than EUR 12 million in 2014, notwithstanding costs
of acquisition and integration of EUR 0.8 million in 2014. Affair plans on
contributing - starting in 2015 - at least EUR 3 million a year to S&T's
consolidated EBITDA. The acquisition puts S&T AG on course to reach in the next
financial year sales of more than EUR 440 million.
