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

SÜSS MicroTec AG: Adjustment of Full Year Guidance

  - Order intake in Q2 with EUR 41.4 million above guidance 

  - Increase of full year sales forecast to EUR 160 - 170 million

  - Clarification of EBIT guidance to EUR 5 - 10 million in fiscal year
    2012

Garching, August 3, 2012 - The SUSS MicroTec Group (ISIN DE000A1K0235)
today announced, that due to the strong order intake in the first half of
2012, the sales forecast is raised to EUR 160 - 170 million for the full
year. So far the Company expected sales to come in above EUR 155 million
and an EBIT-margin at the lower end of a 5 - 10% bandwidth.

In this context SUSS MicroTec updates the guidance for the full year and
expects EBIT to be between EUR 5 - 10 million. The current EBIT expectation
reflects a EUR 2.5 million burden caused by the acquisition of Tamarack
Scientific, of which 0.6 million are attributable to the purchase price
allocation.

For the fiscal year 2012 the Company has guided for a Free Cash Flow of a
mid-single digit million EUR amount. Due to the strategic increase in
working capital  it now expects the Free Cash Flow  to be in the 
low-single digit million EUR range.

These figures are preliminary and subject to change. The full half year
report will be published on August 7.
