SUSS MicroTec AG:
Renewed Increase of the Order Entry Guidance for Q4 2015

Garching, December 22, 2015 - In a meeting of the sales management and the
management board of SUSS MicroTec AG the estimates of order entry in the
fourth quarter of 2015 was discussed today. The updated expected order
entry value for the SUSS MicroTec group in the fourth quarter of 2015 is
above the expectations published November 18, 2015. Therefore the Company
again increased its outlook for order entry in the fourth quarter 2015 from
EUR 50 to 60 million to a value of at least EUR 65 million (prior year: EUR
44.0 million). This increase is due to the prolonged high demand for
lithography solutions for advanced packaging applications.

It is currently difficult to make a reliable order entry forecast for the
first quarter of 2016. This is due to the continued trend of short term
customer decisions we observe at the moment. SUSS MicroTec assumes that
customers have pulled in orders from 2016 into 2015. Therefore the Company
expects order entry in the first quarter of 2016 to be clearly below the
level of the fourth quarter of 2015.

For the full fiscal year 2015, SUSS MicroTec still expects sales to come in
between EUR 135 million and EUR 145 million. EBIT is expected to be in the
low single-digit million Euro range.
