Ternitz/Vienna, 25 April 2013: The Annual General Meeting of Schoeller-Bleckmann
Oilfield Equipment AG (SBO) listed on the ATX segment of the Vienna Stock
Exchange, resolved to increase the dividend for fiscal 2012 from last year's EUR
1.20 to EUR 1.50, of which EUR 0.50 are attributed to the basic dividend and EUR
1.00 to the bonus. The ex-dividend and dividend payment date was set at 8 May

The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board were granted discharge for fiscal
2012 by the Annual General Meeting. 

According to the Articles of Association, Dr. Peter Pichler's Supervisory Board
mandate ended at this year's Annual General Meeting by draw. At the election to
the Supervisory Board, Dr. Peter Pichler was reappointed as Supervisory Board
member until the Annual General Meeting to be held in 2018. 

For the current fiscal year 2013, SST Schwarz & Schmid Wirtschaftsprüfungsges.
m.b.H. Wirtschaftsprüfungs- und Steuerberatungsgesellschaft was appointed
auditor of the annual financial statements of the company, and Ernst & Young
Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft m.b.H. was appointed auditor of the consolidated
financial statements. 

In their report delivered to the Annual General Meeting the Executive Board gave
an extensive overview of fiscal 2012 for SBO and on the current market
situation, pointing out that the tendency of some customers to cut on tool order
volumes due to high inventories continues as observed in the months before. The
underlying reason for the current inventory situation can be found in the
overordering that took place in the first half of 2012. A reversal of this trend
in incoming orders for SBO can be expected only when customers have reduced
their inventories accordingly. 

As the fundamental data of the oilfield service industry has remained intact,
SBO nevertheless sees a positive industry environment. Despite its ongoing
spending for growth the company is based on a sound balance sheet, low debt and
attractive cash-flow. Therefore, mid-term growth prospects for SBO remain
