    • INFICON acquires Sweden-based manufacturer of leak detectors
    • Close collaboration in leak detection to continue

Aßlar (euro adhoc) - Pfeiffer Vacuum is selling hydrogen leak detection
specialist Adixen
Skandinavia AB to INFICON. This Sweden-based company had been acquired by
Pfeiffer Vacuum in late 2010 in connection with the adixen acquisition. The
transaction is scheduled to be concluded during the current quarter.

Located in Linköping, Sweden, with a staff of some 20 people, Adixen Skandinavia
AB is a manufacturer of leak detection products with hydrogen serving as the
test gas. These kinds of leak detectors are employed first and foremost in
connection with applications that involve potentially higher leak rates,
although they are not directly related to vacuum monitoring. This means that
they do not belong to Pfeiffer Vacuum´s core business. INFICON, a publicly
traded world leader in instruments and process monitoring software, will further
broaden its market position through the acquisition of Adixen Skandinavia AB.

For Pfeiffer Vacuum, the sale of this production facility in Sweden represents
a further leaning of its structures and a focus on the company´s core business
as a provider of vacuum solutions. Both companies, Pfeiffer Vacuum and INFICON,
will continue to collaborate closely in connection with monitoring instruments
for vacuum applications. Confidentiality has been agreed as to the financial
details of the transaction.
