Premstaetten - Premstaetten, Austria (16 July 2019) -- ams AG (SIX: AMS), a
leading worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, notes a recent
publication by OSRAM Licht AG regarding a preliminary, non-binding expression of
interest by ams for OSRAM Licht AG.

ams confirms that it has been engaged in discussions with OSRAM Licht AG
regarding a potential transaction as ams is constantly evaluating potential
opportunities in light of its technology-led strategy. ams requires
opportunities to be strategically compelling and demonstrably value enhancing in
order to consider pursuing a M&A transaction.

However, following an evaluation of recent developments ams does not see a
sufficient basis for continuing these discussions with OSRAM Licht AG.
ams is very pleased with the operating momentum of its business and committed to
maintaining a prudent capital structure which is a key consideration in pursuing
any M&A transaction.
