Hannover/Germany, 13/09/2012 (euro adhoc) - Hoeft & Wessel AG exhibits a number
of novelties at the InnoTrans 2012. This includes a newly developed stationary
ticket vending machine featuring a new, leading-edge design. The terminal has a
new coin handling unit that handles coins substantially faster and with a high
degree of availability. As a result, disruptions are a thing of the past. In
addition, the newly developed system can adapt intelligently to different fares
and also has a substantially enlarged coin storage capacity. Two new four-lane
printers can be integrated into the new terminal, making it possible to process
up to eight paper rolls.

The new coin handling unit and new printer will lengthen the service intervals
considerably, lowering the current operating costs for public transport
companies. Another important aspect of the further development of the
successful almex.station product series was a further improvement in protection
against vandalism. New stainless-steel operating bays are extremely resistant
to vandalism and give the terminals an attractive appearance as well. A newly
developed film adhesion system facilitates personalised design and simple
replacement of the film if damaged due to vandalism.

In Europe, Hoeft & Wessel AG delivered stationary ticket vending systems to the
Danish State Railway and to Deutsche Bahn (German Rail) and received a contract
award from the Belgian State Railway SNCB at the beginning of this year.

Using the new software GUIDEsign, customers of Hoeft & Wessel will be able to
design their own graphical user interfaces easily and speedily in future. What
is special about this is that the GUI can even be personalized for each
passenger. As a result, passengers with poor eyesight can be given a user
interface that is ideally suited to their particular needs. A particularly
handy and fast control device for e-Tickets makes it easier for public
transport companies to check all types of e-Tickets with an RFID chip or
barcode. A new, fast on-board computer with a ticket printer of the
almex.optima series now enables a new, simple e-Ticketing system to be used,
providing for contactless credit cards to be used in substitution for regular
fare tickets. The First Group, the biggest bus operator in the United Kingdom,
is currently being equipped with the new on-board computers.

Hoeft & Wessel is one of Europe's leading providers of state-of-the-art
ticketing systems.
