Siemens: VA TECH takeover successful

Statements of acceptance for 90.94% of the VA TECH capital stock submitted

Vienna, February 10, 2005. Statements of acceptance for 13,951,949 VA TECH shares were submitted prior to the expiration of the February 9, 2005 deadline for accepting the Siemens takeover offer. These statements represent 90.94% of the VA TECH capital stock. This fulfills an essential stipulation of the modified takeover offer made by Siemens on January 26, 2005. The stipulation stated that at least 90% of the VA TECH shares had to be delivered. “The shareholders have thus decided in favor of our proposed course of action regarding VA TECH,” commented Albert Hochleitner, General Director of Siemens AG Österreich.

The legally extended timeframe for all shareholders who have not yet accepted this offer begins on Monday, February 14, 2005, and covers ten trading days up to Friday, February 25, 2005.

The merger between Siemens Österreich and VA TECH is now subject to approval by the antitrust authorities, in particular the EU Commission. Siemens is interested in a speedy completion of the deal and is working closely with the responsible antitrust authorities. The timing of the approval is up to the authorities, but it is expected to be granted at latest by July 20, 2005. The takeover can proceed only after that decision has been made.
