Systeme Lauer GmbH, another 100% subsidiary of AUGUSTA Technologie AG, has acquired a further 1% interest in the share capital. Workstation AG (www.wag.ch) is a provider of platform-independent hardware and software solutions for facility management. The company, with headquarters in Glattbrugg near Zürich and a branch office in Vevey, employs 30 people and generated sales in 2000 of around ten million Swiss francs. Workstation AG's reference customers include DeTeImmobilien and the Migros cooperative chain, the largest retailer in Switzerland. In addition to Workstation AG's outstanding growth potential and the excellent profitability already demonstrated in the past, AUGUSTA Venture GmbH anticipates the acquisition to result in major synergy effects at a technological level for the AUGUSTA Group. This applies in particular to the AUGUSTA subsidiary Systeme Lauer GmbH, which is currently moving onto the market for the remote control and maintenance of production equipment with a similar product to Workstation AG. In order to promote these synergy effects, Systeme Lauer will be granted a seat on the Board of Directors of Workstation AG in addition to its equity interest. The capital increase implemented by Workstation AG in the context of the acquisition of equity interests by the AUGUSTA Group and other investors - Innoventure Capital AG (Credit Suisse Group), Aureus / Invision AG, Zug and FORTKNOX VENTURE AG - will be used in particular to expand the company's international sales structures.
