Its subsidiary Manfred Sticksel CCD Kameratechnik GmbH has acquired a 100% interest in the Swiss company Weinberger AG retroactively to October 1, 2000. AUGUSTA is thus further continuing the expansion of its "Digital Image Processing" group. Weinberger AG (www.weinberger.ch) develops and produces high-speed camera systems for high-speed industrial applications (up to 10,000 images per second). These camera systems are used in areas where high-speed movements are recorded and analyzed, e.g. in crash tests in the automotive industry. Weinberger AG will generate sales of approximately CHF 7 million in 2000. Conversion from the CCD chip (Charge Coupled Device) to the new CMOS technology (Complementary Metal Oxide Sensors) in Q1/2001 will also generate significant sales potential for the parent company Manfred Sticksel CCD Kameratechnik GmbH. The CMOS 1500x1000pixel color sensor, developed in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institut, is the first to enable the production of razor-sharp images and will replace conventional 16mm film cameras. This sensor has met particularly important requirements of renowned German automotive manufacturers. The parent company Manfred Sticksel CCD Kameratechnik GmbH will use this expertise and develop additional market potential. Furthermore, AUGUSTA is pursuing other acquisition projects. At least one of these projects may be concluded before the end of year 2000. For further information, please contact Dr. Dominik Kramer, Investor Relations.
