Following careful deliberation, the Management Board of Semperit AG Holding
(Semperit) has today decided to commence international arbitration proceedings
against its Thai joint venture partner, the Sri Trang Agro-Industry Public Co
Ltd. Group, as well as against the joint venture company Siam Sempermed
Corporation Ltd. 

Today, as a consequence of unsuccessful efforts to achieve a constructive and
contractually compliant behaviour of the joint venture partner, which satisfies
Semperit's requirements in particular regarding transparency, compliance and
corporate governance, the Management Board of Semperit decided to initiate these
legal proceedings after in-depth consideration of the latest developments.
Furthermore, Semperit is suing regarding determination of and compensation for
damages caused by the detrimental behaviour of the joint venture partner.

The arbitration proceedings will each be conducted under the Rules of the
International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) before an arbitral tribunal with seat in
Zurich, Switzerland.
