Company Information/Contracts

Wien (euro adhoc) - Vienna, July 26, 2013 - The recent developments regarding
the share price of Kapsch TrafficCom are "incomprehensible" explains Georg
Kapsch, CEO Kapsch TrafficCom. The Vienna stock market reacted poorly to the
disclosure that the commercial start of the Electronic Toll Collection System in
Gauteng, a South African province, will not be effected mid July as previously
considered. Kapsch was awarded the contract to implement the toll system in
September 2009. The installation of the system was carried out quickly and
efficiently however, various intended start-dates over the last few months have
been postponed due to a variety of protests, interventions and objections. "The
situation regarding the project has not changed over the last month, therefore
there is no rationale for the sudden market reaction", stresses Kapsch. "Our
system is ready to go and we are calmly waiting for a definite date to start
with the commercial operation."
The recent reports on the financial situation of the South African National Road
Agency (SANRAL) clearly show that an urgent decision and an immediate start are
desirable. The South African Government decided in 2009 that the maintenance and
development of the road system in Gauteng will be funded by electronic tolling.
"The delays jeopardize jobs and endanger the country's infrastructure",
underlines Kapsch. "We are confident that governmental authorities in South
Africa will act promptly and that all necessary steps will be taken soon."
Zwtl.: 18,000 installed toll lanes, 80 million On-Board Units sold
"Our company is involved in many successful projects around the world, and we
are acting as a global provider", explains Kapsch. Kapsch TrafficCom has already
installed 18,000 toll lanes around the globe. Kapsch has sold 80 million On-
Board Units worldwide and has references from 43 countries on all continents.
These include among others the successful tolling projects in Austria, Czech
Republic and Poland as well as the ten year technology and service contract with
the United States' E-ZPass Group, the world's largest interoperable toll
collection system.
