PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA OR JAPAN OR IN OR INTO OTHER COUNTRIES IN
WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION MAY BE UNLAWFUL.

Management Board of AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik
Aktiengesellschaft has decided - based on today's approval from the Supervisory
Board and depending on market conditions - to issue a deeply subordinated bond
with an indefinite term and an early redemption option by the issuer after five
years (hybrid bond). HSBC Bank plc was mandated as sole structuring advisor and
sole bookrunner.

AT&S targets an issue amount of at least a high, double-digit million volume
(sub-benchmark size). The issue will be directed exclusively to institutional
investors with a minimum subscription of EUR 100,000; a retail offer will not
take place. The total issue amount will only be determined after an investor
roadshow. Details of such an issue like nominal volume, issue price and coupon
will be determined based on the respective applicable market conditions within a
book-building procedure.

The issue is expected to be closed still in November 2017. The proceeds of the
issue should support the strategic investment program as the basis for the
planned, long-term profitable growth. Furthermore, the potential proceeds are
intended to strengthen AT&S's capital structure and to optimize the balance
sheet structure via an IFRS equity instrument. Furthermore, AT&S targets to
diversify the current investor base.
