LION E-Mobility AG announces preliminary annual results for 2014: 103%
increase in turnover at LION Smart GmbH compared to the prior year.

Garching - February 16th, 2015 - In the fiscal year 2014 LION Smart GmbH, a
subsidiary of LION E-Mobility AG, managed to increase its turnover by 103%.

In 2014 LION Smart GmbH, a development service provider for
high-performance energy storage systems and manufacturer of system
components for batteries has further increased its investments into the
product range of battery-management-systems and also managed to expand its
strong position in the segment of battery-prototyping. With increased
revenues of 513 TEUR (prior year: 252 TEUR) the company was able to meet
its targeted operating result of -6 TEUR (prior year: 64 TEUR) for the
fiscal year due to considerably increased investments and significantly
decreased proportion of its external debt ratio. Earnings changed from 1.2
TEUR in the prior year to -13.5 TEUR. In addition to an extension of the
machinery pool for the production of high-performance battery systems the
workforce was further increased by four employees. The outlook for 2015 is
also very positive: Order books are well filled and the latest edition of
open-source battery-management-systems in already in use at selected
clients. Due to the pleasant order situation, for 2015 we expect a further
doubling of our turnover.

The joint-venture TÜV SUED Battery Testing GmbH was able to further
increase its turnover in the fiscal year 2014. In comparison to the prior
year turnover rose by 10.5% to 2.961 TEUR (prior year: 2.679). Moreover 331
TEUR nonsales-related revenues were generated in 2014. Balance sheet total
increased by 2.9% from 8.199 TEUR to 8.435 TEUR. As a result of a
significant laboratory expansion as well as various beginning-of-the-year
and special-items effects, such as the initial operation of new crash-test
facilities in Oberpfaffenhofen, annual profits changed from 169 TEUR to
-270 TEUR. EBITDA changed from 786 TEUR to 412 TEUR. In the course of our
growth strategy testing capacities for cell-, module- and destructive tests
were further expanded. Also new crash test facilities were added to the
test portfolio. After mastering the challenges the first two quarters of
2014, TÜV SUED Battery Testing GmbH to achieve new records of turnover in
the second half of the year. Therefore we also anticipate a positive
outlook in this business segment for 2015.
