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

Improved Full Year Guidance and Publication of the Order Entry Guidance for
the Second Half of the 2014 Fiscal year

Garching, August 6, 2014 - The management board of SUSS MicroTec AG
reiterates the sales guidance for the fiscal year 2014 and expects sales to
be in the bandwidth of 135 - 145 EUR million. At the same time the
expectation for the full year EBIT has improved from the minus 5 to 0 EUR
million bandwidth to a "slightly positive" EBIT in 2014. The major reason
for the higher EBIT expectation is the improved earnings situation in the
first half of 2014, which was partly driven by the positive impact of the
restructuring and cost saving measures, which were taken in 2013.

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects an order entry within
the range of 25 - 35 EUR million. Due to an expected upswing in demand from
customers during the course of the year, the Management Board considers it
possible that order entry will return to the 30 to 40 EUR million range in
the fourth quarter of 2014.
