Laakirchen, July 14, 2015
Miba AG ("Miba") was today informed by its majority shareholder, Mitterbauer
Beteiligungs-Aktiengesellschaft ("MBAG") about a takeover offer addressed to
free-float shareholders. Furthermore, Miba was informed that MBAG targets a
squeeze-out and a delisting of the Miba preferred shares from the Vienna Stock
Exchange presumably in the fourth quarter 2015: 
"MBAG intends to make a voluntary public offer in accordance with Sections 4 et
seq of the Austrian Takeover Code ("ATC") to the shareholders of Miba to
purchase all no par value preferred bearer shares Issue B of Miba which are
listed for trading on the Vienna Stock Exchange (ISIN: AT0000734835). Shares
which are already held by the bidder, parties acting in concert and the treasury
shares held by the target company are excluded from the offer. Accordingly, the
offer relates to 121.233 preferred shares of Issue B which corresponds to 9.33%
in the entire share capital of the target company. The offer price will amount
to EUR 550 per preferred share. In accordance with Sections 7, 10 ATC, MBAG will
file today an offer document with the takeover commission. The offer document is
expected to be published on or about July 30, 2015. The offer period will
commence upon publication of the offer and will presumably last three weeks.
MBAG today has approached Miba with its intention to launch squeeze-out
proceedings in accordance with § 1 of the Shareholder-Squeeze-out-Act.
MBAG today has acquired 80,788 preferred shares Issue B without voting or
conversion rights (ISIN: AT0000734835) from MITTERBAUER Privatstiftung.
Accordingly, it owns 870,000 ordinary voting shares which represent 100% of the
voting rights in the shareholders' meeting of the target company, 130,000
non-voting preferred bearer shares Issue A which have a conversion right into
ordinary bearer shares and 80,788 non-voting preferred bearer shares Issue B
which have no conversion rights into ordinary bearer shares. This corresponds to
a participation of MBAG in the entire issued share capital of Miba of 83.14%."
