A leading provider of sensor solutions based on time-to-digital conversion,
acam-messelectronic expands ams' sensor solutions portfolio for high precision
applications

Unterpremstaetten, Austria (4 December 2014) - ams (SIX: AMS), a leading
worldwide manufacturer of high performance sensor and analog solutions, has
entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares in acam-messelectronic,
a leader in highly accurate time-based measurement and related sensor solutions,

Established in 1996, acam-messelectronic designs and markets sensor interface

acam-messelectronic's time-based converter technology with picosecond resolution
creates significant advantages for demanding sensor applications. Shipping into
industrial, infrastructure, medical, and automotive systems, the company's
CMOS-based products measure timing, capacitance, resistance and rotational speed
at very high accuracy and speed with very low power consumption.
acam-messelectronic's technology offers superior performance in time-of-flight
and ultrasound-based measurement applications.

acam-messelectronic is headquartered in Stutensee, Germany, and the company has
approximately 25 employees. acam-messelectronic's annual revenues reach the high
single-digit million EUR range with attractive profitability. The parties to the
transaction, which is expected to close within the next week subject to certain
approvals and conditions, have agreed to keep the consideration confidential.
Following the closing, ams plans to integrate acam-messelectronic's activities
in current and emerging markets into its existing business at the present
location and to consolidate acam-messelectronic from the first quarter 2015
onwards.

Adding acam-messelectronic's time-to-digital sensor technology to ams' portfolio
of advanced sensors is a further step for ams towards shaping the world with
sensor solutions.
