Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, July 4, 2012.  The 2012-2019 corporate bond issued by
ANDRITZ AG has aroused great interest among both private and institutional
investors in Austria and abroad. Due to the strong demand - the order book was
oversubscribed within a few hours - a volume of 350 MEUR could be placed, and
the subscription period was terminated today prematurely. Two thirds of the
volume was subscribed by Austrian private investors and one third by banks,
funds, and insurance companies. Just under 75% of the total volume was placed in
Austria, with the remainder divided evenly between Germany and Switzerland. An
application has been made to the Vienna Stock Exchange for admission to listing
on the Second Regulated Market. The first price of the bond will be quoted on
July 9, 2012.
