Virtual General Meeting
For the purpose of holding a virtual General Meeting, the Company's shareholders
will have the opportunity to participate in the General Meeting from any
location via an audio-visual link in real time. All shareholders who wish to do
so will therefore be able to follow the course of the General Meeting and in
particular also follow the presentation by the Management Board and the answers
to shareholders' questions.

The entire General Meeting will be transmitted on the Internet for this purpose.
All shareholders of the Company can follow the General Meeting on the Internet
at www.ats.net on July 9, 2020 from approx. 10:00 a.m. From a technical point of
view, in order to participate in / follow the virtual General Meeting, the
participants require, in particular, an Internet-enabled device capable of
displaying the General Meeting visually and acoustically in real time (e.g., a
PC including a monitor and speakers, a notebook, a tablet or a smartphone),
Internet access as well as a sufficiently powerful Internet connection. Prior
registration or login is not required for following the General Meeting on the
Internet. Further details on the conduct of the virtual General Meeting may be
found below (in particular under "Conduct of the virtual General Meeting").

By holding the General Meeting as a virtual meeting in the form described above,
both the interests of the Company and the interests of the participants (in
particular their health protection) are - in the Management Board's assessment -
served in the best possible way.

Please note that this live transmission as a virtual General Meeting does not
allow for remote participation (Section 102 (3) (2) Stock Corporation Act) or
remote voting (Section 102 (3) (3) Stock Corporation Act and Section 126 Stock
Corporation Act), and the Internet transmission is not a two-way connection.
Likewise, please note that the Company is only responsible for the use of
technical means of communication insofar as these are attributable to its own
sphere.

Participation of shareholders in the General Meeting
Entitlement to participate in the General Meeting and to exercise voting rights
and all other shareholders' rights at the virtual General Meeting in accordance
with the COVID-19 Corporate Regulation is conditional on the holding of shares
on the record date, i.e. June 29, 2020, 24.00 hours - midnight - CET/CEST (Local
Time Vienna).

Only shareholders who provide evidence of their shareholdings on the record date
are entitled to participate in the virtual General Meeting in accordance with
the COVID-19 Corporate Regulation.

Deposit bearer shares
Evidence of shareholdings on the relevant date must be furnished by way of a
confirmation issued by the bank where the shareholder has deposited his/her
shares (deposit confirmation) if the bank is domiciled in a member state of the
EEA or OECD. Shareholders who have deposited their shares with a bank which does
not meet these criteria are requested to contact the Company.

The deposit confirmation must be issued in German or English in accordance with
the relevant statutory provisions (Section 10a Stock Corporation Act) and
contain the following information:


  1. Details of the issuing bank: Name (company) and address;

be older than seven days upon presentation to the Company.

Banks are requested to send deposit confirmations where possible collectively
(in list format). The shareholders are not blocked by registering their
participation in the General Meeting or by sending deposit confirmations;
therefore shareholders may freely dispose of their shares after registration or
transmission of a deposit confirmation.

Representation of shareholders at the General Meeting
Requirement of the appointment of a special proxy holder - special provision for
the present General Meeting

Each shareholder entitled to participate in the virtual General Meeting and who
has provided evidence of this fact to the Company in accordance with the
provisions of this convocation, has the right to appoint a special proxy holder.

In accordance with Section 3 (4) of the COVID-19 Corporate Regulation motions
may be submitted, votes cast, and objections raised at this virtual General
Meeting exclusively by one of the following special proxy holders:

* Dr. Michael Knap, IVA Interessenverband für Anleger
* Dr. Arno Weigand, Notary Public
* Dr. Paul Fussenegger, Attorney at Law
* Dr. Christoph Nauer, Attorney at Law


Each shareholder can freely choose one of the abovementioned persons as special
proxy holder and grant this person power of attorney.

For the granting of power of attorney to those special proxy holders, a special
form will be available on the Company's website at www.ats.net (Category
Investors > Annual General Meeting) as of June 18, 2020 at the latest. In
addition, a form for the revocation of the power of attorney will be available
at this place as from the date mentioned. Please read the forms carefully. In
order to ensure seamless processing we recommend always using the forms
provided.

It is recommended that the special proxy holder chosen by the shareholder be
contacted in good time if specific instructions are to be given to the special
proxy holder authorized by the shareholder to submit motions, to cast votes and/
or to raise an objection in the virtual General Meeting with regard to one or
more items on the agenda. Please find below contact information if you wish to
contact one of the special proxy holders directly:

* Dr. Michael Knap, c/o IVA Interessenverband für Anleger, Feldmühlgasse 22/4,
  1130 Vienna, knap.ats@hauptversammlung.at
* Dr. Arno Weigand, Notary Public, Untere Donaustraße 13-15/7. OG, 1020 Vienna,
  weigand.ats@hauptversammlung.at
* Dr. Paul Fussenegger, Attorney at Law, Rotenturmstraße 12/6, 1010 Vienna,
  fussenegger.ats@hauptversammlung.at
* Dr. Christoph Nauer, Attorney at Law, bpv Hügel Rechtsanwälte GmbH,
  Enzersdorferstraße 4, 2340 Mödling, nauer.ats@hauptversammlung.at


AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft bears the costs
for the abovementioned special proxy holders. All other costs have to be borne
by the shareholder, especially their own banking fees for the deposit
confirmation or the postal charges.

A shareholder may grant power of attorney to the bank where he/she has deposited
his/her shares subject to the agreement of that bank. In such case, in addition
to the deposit confirmation, it is sufficient for the bank to provide the
Company with a declaration by one of the permitted means (see under "Deposit
bearer shares") that it has been granted a power of attorney; the power of
attorney itself needs not to be sent to the Company in such case.

Please note: If a shareholder wishes to cast a vote, submit motions for
resolutions or object to one or more items on the agenda at the General Meeting,
the respective shareholder or the respective representative appointed by the
shareholder is, in accordance with the abovementioned special provision,
required to appoint one of the abovementioned special proxy holders and issue
corresponding instructions to that special proxy holder. In the event that a
power of attorney is granted to another person, please note that to exercise the
right to vote, the right to submit motions and the right to raise objections at
the General Meeting a valid chain of authorization (substitute power of
attorney) to one of the four special proxy holders must be ensured.

Submission of the Power of Attorney to the Company
Declarations concerning the granting and revoking of power of attorneys may be
sent to the Company in text form, if possible until July 7, 2020, 12.00 hours -
noon - CET/CEST (Local Time Vienna) (receipt), solely by one of the following
means (in this context, we again expressly point out the requirement to appoint
a special proxy holder for casting votes, submitting motions and/or raising an
objection):

* as an un-editable document (for example as PDF) in electronic form to email:

for Dr. Michael Knap: knap.ats@hauptversammlung.at
for Dr. Arno Weigand: weigand.ats@hauptversammlung.at
for Dr. Paul Fussenegger: fussenegger.ats@hauptversammlung.at
for Dr. Christoph Nauer: nauer.ats@hauptversammlung.at
please submit powers of attorney pursuant to Section 113 (1) Stock Corporation
Act, which are granted to persons other than the abovementioned special proxy
holders, in the form described, to anmeldung.ats@hauptversammlung.at;

* via mail, courier or in person to:

c/o HV-Veranstaltungsservice GmbH (as authorized recipient of AT & S Austria
Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft) Köppel Nr. 60, 8242 St. Lorenzen
am Wechsel, Austria; subject "HV AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik
Aktiengesellschaft 2020";

* by fax to +43-1-8900 500 87;
* via SWIFT: GIBAATWGGMS - Message Type MT598; please ensure that ISIN
  AT0000969985 is indicated in the wording.


The power of attorney sent to one of the four special proxy holders cannot be
accessed by the other special proxy holders.

Due to the need to uphold the special measures necessitated by COVID-19,
personal delivery of the power of attorney at the place of assembly is expressly
excluded.

A power of attorney may be revoked by the shareholder. The aforementioned
provisions on granting power of attorney apply analogously to the revocation of
a power of attorney. The revocation becomes effective upon receipt by the
Company.

Shareholders' rights in connection with the General Meeting
Shareholders whose holdings represent a combined total of at least 5% of the
capital stock since at least three months may require in writing the inclusion
and announcement of additional General Meeting agenda items by June 18, 2020
(date of receipt). A proposal for resolution and justification thereof must be
submitted for each such agenda item.

Shareholders whose holdings represent a combined total of at least 1% of the
capital stock may submit proposals for resolutions in text form for each agenda
item, to be accompanied by a justification, by June 30, 2020, and require the
proposed resolutions to be posted on the Company's website with the names of the
relevant shareholders, the justification and a statement of the Management Board
or the Supervisory Board (if any). For the elections to the Supervisory Board
(agenda item 8) the following must be observed: In case of a proposal for the
election of a member of the Supervisory Board, the statement pursuant to Section
87 (2) Stock Corporation Act of a nominated person replaces the justification.
Regarding the election of members of the Supervisory Board, the General Meeting
shall take into consideration the criteria of Section 87 (2a) Stock Corporation
Act; in particular the professional and personal qualifications of the members
of the Supervisory Board, a balanced composition of expertise of the Supervisory
Board, aspects of diversity and internationality as well as the professional
reliability.

Regarding proposals for the election of Supervisory Board members it is further
declared that the Company falls within the scope and is subject to Section 86
(7) Stock Corporation Act.

In accordance with Section 86 (9) Stock Corporation Act, an objection against
the joint fulfillment of the minimum quota set out in Section 86 (7) Stock
Corporation Act was raised by the majority of the capital representatives more
than six weeks prior to the Annual General Meeting. Therefore, the minimum quota
of 30% women and 30% men in the Supervisory Board has to be fulfilled by the
capital and employee representatives in the Supervisory Board separately.

At present, the Supervisory Board is composed of twelve members, eight capital
representatives (three women and five men) and four employee representatives
(four men). In case of an unchanged number of Supervisory Board members, due to
the separate fulfilment of the gender quota in the Supervisory Board of the
Company, at least two seats of the capital representatives are required to be
filled with women and at least two seats of the capital representatives are
required to be filled with men in order to fulfill the minimum quota on the side
of the capital representatives set out in Section 86 (7) Stock Corporation Act.
In case the number of capital representatives in the Supervisory Board is
increased to nine members (being the maximum number of capital representatives
in the Supervisory Board pursuant to the Articles or Association of the
Company), due to the separate fulfilment of the gender quota in the Supervisory
Board of the Company, at least three seats of the capital representatives are
required to be filled with women and at least three seats of the capital
representatives are required to be filled with men in order to fulfill the
minimum quota on the side of the capital representatives set out in Section 86
(7) Stock Corporation Act.

Further information regarding these rights, in particular how to submit motions
to the Company and evidence shareholdings is now available on the internet at
www.ats.net (Category Investors > Annual General Meeting).

Pursuant to Section 119 Stock Corporation Act every shareholder has the right to
propose motions at the General Meeting with regard to each agenda item which do
not require prior announcement. Prerequisite therefor is the evidence of the
entitlement to attend the General Meeting. For a shareholder to propose the
election of a member to the Supervisory Board, the submission of a draft
resolution in accordance with Section 110 Stock Corporation Act, to be
accompanied by a statement pursuant to Section 87 (2) Stock Corporation Act (see
above) is mandatory. A shareholder's proposal for resolution submitted in
accordance with Section 110 Stock Corporation Act will only be deemed a motion
if repeated in the General Meeting. It is expressly pointed out that the right
of shareholders to submit motions at the General Meeting may - in accordance
with Section 3 (4) COVID-19 Corporate Regulation - only be exercised by one of
the special proxy holders listed above in the form specified below (see under
"Conduct of the virtual General Meeting").

According to Section 118 Stock Corporation Act every shareholder has the right
to request information regarding Company matters at the General Meeting,
provided that such information is necessary for the proper assessment of an
agenda item. The duty to provide information extends to legal and business
relationships between the Company and Group companies, and to the condition of
the Group and its consolidated subsidiaries. Such information must comply with
the principles of diligent and truthful accountability. Information may be
denied if and to the extent that (i) according to reasonable business judgment,
it could cause significant harm to the Company or a Group company, or (ii) the
provision of information would be unlawful, or (iii) it has been published on
the Company's website, as registered in the Commercial Register, in the form of
question and answer through at least seven days prior to the beginning of the
General Meeting.

We kindly ask the shareholders to submit all questions in text form by email to
the email address fragen.ats@hauptversammlung.at in good time prior to the
General Meeting so that they arrive at the Company no later than on the second
day before the General Meeting, i.e. Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 12.00 hours - noon -
CET/CEST (Local Time Vienna). For this purpose - at least for the first question
- please use the question form (in order to establish the identity and
conformity with the deposit confirmation), which will be available on the
Company's website at www.ats.net (Category Investors > Annual General Meeting)
as of June 18, 2020. For any further questions from the same shareholder, a
simple email from the same email address from which the question form was sent
will be sufficient.

In this way, you enable the Management Board to prepare as accurately as
possible for the questions you submitted.

We would like to expressly point out that the right to information pursuant to
Section 118 Stock Corporation Act may - in accordance with Section 3 (1) COVID-
19 Corporate Regulation - also be exercised by the shareholders themselves
during the General Meeting in the form specified below (see under "Conduct of
the virtual General Meeting").

Conduct of the virtual General Meeting
As the General Meeting will be transmitted on the Internet at www.ats.net on
July 9, 2020 from approx. 10:00 a.m., all shareholders who wish to do so will be
able to follow the course of the General Meeting - including the presentation by
the Management Board and the answers to shareholders' questions - in real time
via this audio-visual connection.

Shareholders who are entitled to participate in the General Meeting will have
the opportunity to electronically submit their questions in text form even
during the General Meeting within a certain time frame to the special proxy
holders or the Company, i.e. to
Dr. Michael Knap: knap.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Arno Weigand: weigand.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Paul Fussenegger: fussenegger.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Christoph Nauer: nauer.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
the Company: fragen.ats@hauptversammlung.at.

For this purpose - at least for the first question - please use the question
form (in order to establish the identity and conformity with the deposit
confirmation), which will be available on the Company's website at www.ats.net
(Category Investors > Annual General Meeting) as of June 18, 2020. For any
further questions from the same shareholder, a simple email from the same email
address from which the question form was sent will be sufficient.

The questions submitted by the shareholders prior to or during the General
Meeting within the time frame will be read out at the General Meeting by the
chairman of the General Meeting or a person designated by the chairman.

The shareholders have the opportunity to react to developments at the General
Meeting themselves, for example by asking a question or supplementary questions
as well as by submitting alternative motions.

The shareholders will further have the opportunity to submit and / or amend
their instructions, in particular with regard to the submission of motions, the
casting of votes or changes to their instructions regarding the casting of votes
on one or more items on the agenda, but also the raising of objections to one or
more items on the agenda to the respective special proxy holder, even during the
General Meeting. For this purpose, please send a simple email to the email
address of your special proxy holder:
Dr. Michael Knap: knap.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Arno Weigand: weigand.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Paul Fussenegger: fussenegger.ats@hauptversammlung.at or
Dr. Christoph Nauer: nauer.ats@hauptversammlung.at.

In this simple email, the person making the declaration (name/company name, date
of birth/commercial register number of the shareholder as well as, to the extent
possible, deposit number, number of share for which power of attorney has been
granted and telephone number in case of any questions) must be stated and the
conclusion of the declaration must be made recognizable by reproducing the
signature of the name or otherwise (Section 13 (2) Stock Corporation Act) in
order to enable the special proxy holder to determine the identity and
conformity with the power of attorney.

The chairman of the General Meeting will structure the course of the General
Meeting in terms of time, as is the case with a conventional General Meeting,
and will, in particular, give notice of a specific appropriate time by which
questions may be asked and instructions to the special proxy holders concerning
the submission of motions and casting of votes can be made.

Please note that, in all probability, only electronic communication with your
special proxy holder will be possible during the General Meeting and that, in
particular, the availability of the special proxy holder by telephone cannot be
ensured.

Attention is drawn to the fact that it may be necessary to interrupt the virtual
General Meeting for a short time in order to process shareholders' instructions
to the special proxy holders received during the General Meeting.

The Management Board endeavours to ensure the highest possible quality of
decision-making for shareholders in the context of the abovementioned
communication channels and opportunities for participation.

Total number of shares and voting rights
According to Section 120 (2) (1) Stock Exchange Act we announce, that the
Company has issued 38,850,000 no-par value bearer shares and every no-par value
share confers one vote. At the time of convocation of the General Meeting, the
Company holds no treasury shares. The total number of voting rights at the date
of the convening of the Annual General Meeting therefore amounts to 38,850,000.

Information for shareholders on the processing of personal data
AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft processes
shareholders' and their representatives' personal data, including but not
limited to the data as stated in Section 10a (2) Stock Corporation Act (name,
address, date of birth, the number of the securities deposit account, number of
shares held by the shareholder, class of shares (if applicable), number of the
voting card, and name and date of birth of the proxy representative (if
applicable)), in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in
particular the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and
the Austrian Data Protection Act, to enable the shareholders to exercise their
rights during the course of the General Meeting.

The processing of personal data is mandatory for the organisation of the General
Meeting and for the attendance of shareholders and their representatives at the
General Meeting in accordance with the Stock Corporation Act. Legal basis for
the processing is the necessity for compliance with legal obligations (Article 6
(1) c) GDPR) and for the purpose of legitimate interest of AT & S Austria
Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft in the organisation of the
General Meeting (Article 6 (1) f) GDPR).

AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft is the data
controller responsible for the processing of the personal data. For the purpose
of organising the General Meeting, AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik
Aktiengesellschaft makes use of external service providers, such as notaries,
attorneys, banks and IT service providers. These service providers receive from
AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft only those
personal data that are necessary to provide the requested services and they
process the data solely in accordance with the instructions of AT & S Austria
Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft.

If a shareholder or his or her representative participates in the General
Meeting, all attending representatives of the shareholders, the members of the
Management and Supervisory Boards, the notary, and all persons with a legal
right to attend can look into the legally mandated attendance list (Section 117
Stock Corporation Act) and so see the personal data stated therein (e.g. name,
place of residence, interests held). Moreover, AT & S Austria Technologie &
Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft is legally required to annex personal
shareholder and representative data (including but not limited to the attendance
list) to the notarial record and submit such data to the public company register
(Section 120 Stock Corporation Act).

The data of the shareholders are anonymised and erased as soon as they are no
longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected and processed, and
as long as no other legal obligations require their further storage.
Documentation and retention obligations arise from corporate, stock corporation
and takeover law, from legislation on taxes and duties, and from money
laundering regulations. In the event that legal claims are asserted by
shareholders against AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik
Aktiengesellschaft or by AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik
Aktiengesellschaft against shareholders, the storage of personal data serves the
purpose of clarifying and asserting such claims in individual cases. In the
context of legal proceedings involving civil lawsuits, this may result in the
storage of data during the period of limitation plus the duration of the legal
proceedings until the latter's legally valid conclusion.

Shareholders are at all times entitled to exercise any of the rights of access,
rectification, restriction, objection and erasure with regard to the processing
of their personal data as well as to exercise their right to data portability in
accordance with chapter III GDPR. Shareholders may assert these rights against
AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft free of charge by
sending an email to datenschutz@ats.net or by postal mail to the following
address:

AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft
Fabriksgasse 13, 8700 Leoben-Hinterberg, Austria

Furthermore, shareholders have the right to lodge a complaint with the
supervisory authorities for data protection according to Article 77 GDPR.
