Premstaetten, Austria (10 February 2020) -- ams AG (SIX: AMS), a leading

intention to implement a Domination and Profit and Loss Transfer Agreement
("DPLTA") between its wholly-owned subsidiary ams Offer GmbH and OSRAM Licht AG

"Following the approval by our shareholders for the EUR 1.65 billion rights
issue, this firm intention reflects the next step in the acquisition of OSRAM,"
says Alexander Everke, CEO of ams. "We intend to implement a DPLTA in order to
enable both companies to work together and realise our joint strategic vision of
creating a global leader in sensor solutions and photonics in an efficient
manner. We look forward to building upon the collaboration with our OSRAM
colleagues to begin a successful integration once the Transaction has closed."

The DPLTA requires the approval by an extraordinary shareholders meeting of
OSRAM with a majority of at least 75% of the votes cast. ams continues to expect
the takeover offer for OSRAM to close in the second quarter 2020 subject to
receipt of the required regulatory clearances.
