Company Information

Wien (euro adhoc) - Semperit AG Holding has successfully placed a corporate
Schuldschein loan to the amount of EUR 125 million. The issue consists of
tranches with five, seven and ten years maturity. The weighted average interest
rate of the corporate Schuldschein loan is 2.35%. Based on an initial amount of
EUR 75 million the transaction was subscribed five-fold. It was not only placed
in Austria and Germany but also in other European and non-European countries,
especially in Asia. The proceeds will be used to refinance liabilities incurred
in connection with the acquisition of Latexx Partners, Malaysia, in the previous
year. In addition, the cash inflow will also be used to implement the on-going
growth programme of the Semperit Group. 

"The issuing of the corporate Schuldschein loan represents an important step
towards the diversification and further optimisation of the Group's financing.
By issuing the Schuldschein we are taking advantage of the on-going attractive
interest rate level, especially with respect to the long tenures, and are thus
preparing for further growth steps", says Johannes Schmidt-Schultes, Chief
Financial Officer of Semperit. "The favourable interest rates of the
Schuldschein reflect our solid balance sheet structure and the strong cash flow
of Semperit", he adds. 

At the end of the first quarter of 2013, Semperit had a positive net liquidity
of EUR 33 million and boasted an equity ratio of 51.7% (incl. non-controlling
interests) of the balance sheet total.
