worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, announces that Chief
Financial Officer (CFO) Michael Wachsler will step down from his position in the

Hans Jörg Kaltenbrunner, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, commented, "As a
long-term member of the Management Board, Michael Wachsler played a key role
well beyond his position as CFO in growing ams from a medium-sized company with
a focus on Europe to a USD 2 billion globally successful and world leading
provider of sensor solutions given his outstanding expertise and experience. The
Supervisory Board would like to thank Michael Wachsler for 19 years of
exceptional commitment. We are very pleased that Michael Wachsler will remain
with ams in an advisory role for the coming two years and would then make his
leadership qualities available to the Supervisory Board as well."

Simultaneously, the Supervisory Board of ams is pleased to announce that Ingo
Bank will join the Management Board of ams as Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
effective 1 May 2020. To this end, Ingo Bank will step down from the Management
Board of OSRAM Licht AG, where he holds the CFO position, effective 30 April
2020. Ingo Bank's term will run for three years.

range of technology markets. He joined OSRAM Licht AG in 2016 from Parexel, a
U.S.-based listed provider of biopharmaceutical services, where he held the CFO
position. Prior to that, he spent 18 years at Philips in various roles,
including head of finance for a business unit of Philips Lighting and CFO of the
healthcare division. Ingo Bank is a German citizen and, during his 25-year
career, has lived in Europe, Asia and the United States.
