Dividend Announcements/Distribution/Company Information/Bonus shares

Following today's approval of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board and
the Supervisory Board decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting on 23 May
2013 a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share (previous year: EUR 0.40 per share) and a
capital increase from company funds for the issue of bonus shares. 

The proposed resolution concerning the issue of bonus shares provides for an
increase in the company's share capital from EUR 11,134,794.00 by EUR
11,134,794.00 to EUR 22,269,588.00 by issuing 11,134,794 new no par bearer
shares. This measure is intended to increase the liquidity of LPKF's shares and
enhance its attractiveness especially for private shareholders. 

If resolved by the Annual General Meeting, the capital increase will be
implemented by converting retained earnings and a portion of the capital
reserves into share capital. The shareholders are entitled to these new shares
at a ratio of 1:1, which means that one new no par share will be issued for each
old no par share. Shareholders will not make any contributions in this context. 

The new shares will carry dividend rights from January 1, 2013. The issue of
bonus shares does not change the percentage in the company's share capital that
is held by individual shareholders. This measure has no effect on the amount of
the company's equity. 

The shares of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG are listed on the TecDAX index of the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN 0006450000).

The complete 2012 annual report will be published on 26 March 2013 at
