MEDION AG: Ad-hoc announcement pursuant to section 15 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)

Share buyback program

The Management Board  of  MEDION  AG  has  decided,  with  the   consent  of  the Supervisory Board, to repurchase up  to  a  further 968,368  of  the  Company's shares - which represents 2 percent of the Company's  current  share  capital  - via the stock market as   from  December  4,  2008.  It  is  therefore  partially utilizing the authorization to this  effect  granted  by  the  Company's  Annual Shareholders' Meeting on May 14, 2008, which had authorized it to   repurchase  a total of up to 10 percent of the Company's current share capital. MEDION AG  had repurchased 6 percent of its share capital (2,905,104 shares) by  October  2008. When the Company repurchases the further tranche of its  shares  via  the  stock market in line with its decision, the  price  per  share  paid  by   the  Company (excluding transaction costs) must not be more than 10 percent  above  or  below the market price determined for the Company's shares on the  respective  trading day by the opening auction in the Xetra trading system (or a  similar  successor system) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. A decision on  the  purpose  for   which the shares repurchased under the Annual  Shareholders'   Meeting's  authorization are to be utilized will be taken at a later date.

The share buyback will  be  executed  by  Commerzbank  AG,  Frankfurt am  Main, Germany. It is intended that  the  decisions  on  when  the shares  are  to  be repurchased via the stock market will be taken by the bank alone and that  these decisions will not be influenced by the Company. MEDION AG will  provide  weekly information on the progress  of  the  share  buyback  program  on  its  website. Further details can be found  in  the  Share  Buyback  Program  section  of   its website at
