Board of Directors (Appointments and Changes)

Today, the Nominating Committee of Semperit AG Holding has decided unanimously
to propose Martin Füllenbach as the company's new Chairman of the Management
Board (CEO) to the Supervisory Board.

Born in Germany, Füllenbach (49) studied economics and business organisation in
Munich, and subsequently gained his doctorate in financial sciences in
Nuremberg. He is recognised as a top manager with many years of experience in
highly renowned industrial companies. 

Most recently, Füllenbach has been CEO of Oerlikon Leybold Vakuum in Cologne
since 2012 and, in addition, an appointed member of the Group Management Board
of OC Oerlikon AG in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, since 2014.

From 2007 to 2012, Füllenbach was Head of Corporate Development as well as from
2007 to 2012 Director of Voith Turbo, which is headquartered in Heidenheim,
Germany: He was a member of the divisional management "drive technology" as well
as CEO of the business unit "marine".

After more than ten years as an officer of the German Armed Forces with numerous
international deployments, he took over tasks in the planning staff of the CEO
and in programme planning of the military aircraft production at the aerospace
company EADS at the beginning of his industrial career. 

"We are very pleased to have won Martin Füllenbach, a renowned international top
manager, as new CEO. We are confident that the Semperit Group will strongly
benefit from his know-how and his experience, particularly in realigning
companies as well as building and developing new business areas," says Veit
Sorger, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Semperit AG Holding, about the
upcoming appointment of the new CEO.

The Supervisory Board of Semperit AG Holding had already known Füllenbach as an
excellent manager due to his former professional activities and had counted him
as member of a pool of potential CEO candidates. This was crucial for quickly
filling the position of CEO with an excellent candidate after the resignation of
Thomas Fahnemann.

The appointment of Martin Füllenbach as CEO for a term from 1 June 2017 to 31
December 2020 is scheduled for the Supervisory Board Meeting on 26 April 2017.
