Ad hoc Release

Vienna, 17 December 2012 - Kapsch TrafficCom AG (ISIN AT000KAPSCH9), listed on
the Vienna Stock Exchange in the prime market segment, informs that it is out of
consideration for the invitation to tender concerning a nationwide toll
collection system in Hungary.

"It was our firm intention to supply the nation of Hungary with a toll
collection system based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology
to secure reliable toll revenue for many years to come. However, after
evaluating the conditions of the invitation to tender in detail, we came to the
conclusion that we must offer a feasible date for the system commissioning since
the starting point required in the invitation to tender of July 1st, 2013, is
not feasible based on our assessment and our experience in numerous system
implementation projects around the world," says Erwin Toplak, Chief Operating
Officer of Kapsch TrafficCom AG.

"We did not make this decision lightly. We are always prepared to undertake a
calculable risk. In the end, we made the decision for the good of the
organization and our shareholders. We are committed to maintaining our
reputation on the market and to avoid clouding the visibility of our company's
development and its shares over the short and medium term. In consideration of
the many potential projects around the world, we are nevertheless optimistic
that the growth course of the Kapsch TrafficCom Group can be continued over the
long term even without the revenue and profit contributions in this and the next
fiscal year that were hoped for from the project in Hungary," says Georg Kapsch,
Chief Executive Officer of Kapsch TrafficCom AG.
