SUSS MicroTec AG Decides Presently Against Sale of Test Systems Division

Munich, Germany, August 14, 2008. SUSS MicroTec AG (business address:
Schleissheimer Strasse 90, 85748 Garching; ISIN: DE0007226706), which is
listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, announce
today that the company continues to hold the Test Systems division to its
Group.

After the Munich-based Company severed ties to its non-core Device Bonder
division last year, the Management Board of SUSS MicroTec AG systematically
examined strategic options for a possible separation from its Test Systems
division.

Despite the prevailing difficult investment climate, the Management Board
engaged in a comprehensive selling process during the last few weeks.
However, a review of the bids submitted subsequently by interested parties
has led the Management Board and the Supervisory Board of SUSS MicroTec AG
to decide presently against the sale of the Test Systems division located
in Dresden.
