Press Release 

SUSS MicroTec AG: Shareholder's Meeting in Munich 

Munich, Germany, June 25, 2009 - At the ordinary shareholder's meeting of
SUSS MicroTec AG (ISIN: DE0007226706), which took place yesterday in
Munich, Germany, 37.7 % of the equity capital was represented.
Approximately 120 shareholders, shareholder and bank representatives and
guests came to the Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in Munich at the
Company's invitation.

The Chief Executive Officer, Frank Averdung, explained the results of the
previous fiscal year and the first quarter of 2009 in his statement of
accounts. The extraordinary charges totaling EUR 18.3 million, which were
the main factor burdening net income for the year, were emphasized, as were
the restructuring and cost-cutting measures that had been implemented as
early as the middle of the year. In addition, the Management Board detailed
the Company's orientation in terms of product strategy for the years to
come.

Averdung stressed in particular, for instance, the future potential and
opportunities in the field of 3-D integration, a market of the future in
the field of wafer-level packaging. 'With 3M as a strategic cooperation
partner in the area of temporary wafer bonding, we are paired with a
renowned and innovative development partner,' Averdung told the
shareholder's meeting in Munich. 3M's Wafer Support System (WSS) supports
the thinning and processing of ultra-thin wafers during the 3-D packaging
process by using techniques and materials for temporary wafer bonding. The
SUSS MicroTec Bonders are designed to process 3M's WSS materials such as
UV-baking liquid adhesive or resist for light-activated separation layers.
As a result, SUSS MicroTec has advanced to the position of authorized
supplier for the 3M Wafer Support System and will manufacture and sell
XBC300 and CBC300 Wafer Bonders configured in-house. 'With our cooperation
partners 3M and Thin Materials we now have two top-class process solutions
in the area of temporary wafer bonding at our disposal, which will allow us
to produce flexible, modular bonder platforms in the future that can be
customized to our customers' requirements,' Averdung continued.

Agenda items included, in addition to the discharge of the Management Board
and Supervisory Board and the appointment of external auditors for the
individual and consolidated financial statements, the creation of new
contingent capital as well as the election of a new member of the
Supervisory Board.

Except the creation of new contingent capital and the authorization of the
Management Board to issue convertible or warrant-linked bonds the
shareholder's meeting voted by a large majority in favor of the resolutions
drafted by the Supervisory Board and Management Board of SUSS MicroTec AG.
However, counter-motions submitted from the shareholder side were rejected
by a majority of votes.

The Management Board and Supervisory Board were thus discharged for the
2008 fiscal year by a large majority of the vote. Sebastian Reppegather was
elected as successor for Dr. Franz Richter, whose tenure started on June
19, 2008. He will serve for the remainder of the original tenure. Mr.
Reppegather is a managing director of IED Beteiligungs-GmbH, Frankfurt am
Main, Germany, as well as Director of Investment at Fidinam S.A., Lugano,
Switzerland. Furthermore Mr. Reppegather is a member of the Supervisory
Board of Sterling Strategic Value Limited, Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
In a constitutive session that took place immediately after the
shareholders' meeting, the Supervisory Board elected the Board member Dr.
Stefan Reineck as the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
