Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, October 19, 2011.  International technology Group
ANDRITZ takes the following position in reply to a press release issued by the
supplier Ovalstrapping Inc., in which Ovalstrapping purports to inform about a
litigation initiated against ANDRITZ:

- ANDRITZ believes that the allegations are unjustified, and ANDRITZ in fact had
already initiated arbitration to seek clarification of these issues, as ANDRITZ
is required to do under its contract with Ovalstrapping. Following this action
by ANDRITZ, the supplier initiated a lawsuit against ANDRITZ at a local US
court, apparently in order to avoid the arbitration sought by ANDRITZ and
required under its contract. ANDRITZ believes that the matter will be clarified
in arbitration. In particular, this small supplier no longer had exclusive
rights for at least three years, and ANDRITZ has replaced the products of the
supplier with different technology.

- ANDRITZ is investigating the supplier´s press release, which from the point of
view of ANDRITZ is misleading, to determine whether the press release has caused
damage and whether it needs to take further actions against the supplier.

- End -
