AD HOC ANNOUNCEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 15 GERMAN SECURITIES TRADING
LAW (WpHG)

SUSS MicroTec AG: Expected Q4 order entry below forecasts

Garching, December 20, 2011 - SUSS MicroTec AG (ISIN: DE000A1K0235) today
announced that order entry for the fourth quarter of 2011 is expected to be
between EUR 20 million and EUR 25 million. In fall 2011, the company had
still been anticipating an order entry of EUR 30 million - EUR 40 million
for the fourth quarter. The currently weak macroeconomic outlook translated
into a cautious ordering behavior of our clients in the fourth quarter. For
the full fiscal year 2011 SUSS MicroTec still expects sales of more than
EUR 170 million and an EBIT-margin between 10% - 15%. The EBIT-margin will
most likely be at the lower end of the guidance due to the increase in R&D
spending in the second half of the year. As of today SUSS MicroTec expects
the free cash flow to be below EUR 10 million for the full fiscal year
2011.
