Garching, Germany, November 19, 2010 - SUSS MicroTec AG (business address:
Schleissheimer Strasse 90, 85748 Garching, Germany; ISIN: DE0007226706),
listed in the Prime Standard of Deutsche Börse AG, announced on June 10,
2010 the relocation of its Substrate Bonder business from the USA to
Germany, with the research and development, production, and product
management functions for the Bonder product line being moved to the
Sternenfels production site.

As part of this move, SUSS MicroTec Inc. in Waterbury, Vermont, is selling
its intangible assets (patents, patent registrations, industrial property
rights, designs, and other expertise) to SUSS MicroTec Lithography GmbH.
These sales result in the realization of undisclosed reserves totaling
approximately US$ 22 million. Taxes on this income accruing in the US can
be fully offset by the company's loss carryforwards.

At Group level, this transaction results in the one-time recognition of EUR
4.5 million in deferred tax assets, which are being recognized with effect
on net income in Q4 2010 under the item 'income taxes'. This one-time
income increases earnings per share by EUR 0.24.
