Company Information

Wien (euro adhoc) - The publicly listed Semperit Group has increased its
shareholding in the Malaysian company Latexx Partners Berhad to more than 95% on
a diluted basis within the context of the delisting from Bursa Malaysia (the
stock exchange of Malaysia) and the related "exit offer" for all outstanding
shares and warrants. The delisting of Latexx Partners can now be carried out as
intended following the closing of the "exit offer". 

As a result of the delisting, trading of Latexx Partners' shares has been
suspended since May 23, 2013 and its' listing on Bursa Malaysia will cease on
June 5, 2013. Currently the remaining shareholders of Latexx Partners have a
further three months to sell their shares and warrants to Semperit Group under
the same conditions as in the "exit offer".

A further step in the acquisition of Latexx Partners was successfully taken on
the basis of the delisting. The integration of the Malaysian glove producer in
the Medical Sector of the Semperit Group is on schedule and has already
generated already benefits in the first quarter of 2013. The improved global
presence, expanded customer base and capacity increases resulting from the
acquisition of Latexx Partners will have a positive effect on Semperit Group's
business development for the rest of the year.
