SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Reports Preliminary Results for the Business Year 2012
-Sales in-line with expectations
-Earnings weaker than projected
-Order backlog improved to EUR 40.1 million
-Leading technologies in all three business segments

Kahl am Main, February 26, 2013 - SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES (SINGULUS) confirms the
forecast released on November 8, 2012 with sales of 108.6 million for the past
business year 2012. According to preliminary results the total earnings
including extraordinary charges amounted to minus EUR 60.5 million. The order
intake in the fiscal year 2012 amounted to EUR 121.9 million (previous year: EUR
151.6 million). The order backlog in the amount of EUR 40.1 million has improved
compared with the prior-year level of EUR 26.8 million.

SINGULUS has a high liquidity position and in the business year 2011 already
completely repaid its borrowings owed to banks. The balance sheet remains stable
and is still solid with an equity ratio of approximately 37 %.

For SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES to once again develop favorably, the core segments
will be further stabilized economically. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, Chief Executive
Officer of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, comments: "We are leading with our
machines in our three core segments Optical Disc, Semiconductor and Solar. We
expect that overall we will be able to grow in these segments in 2013 and to
achieve positive earnings for the full-year.

Dr. Rinck adds: "However, if the current investment restraint for production
equipment in the solar market continues, this will have corresponding impacts on
the earnings targets of the company. To strengthen the existing business
activities, we continue to focus on developing innovative products, which opens
new markets."
