Silicon Sensor took over 84 % of MPD GmbH

2005-09-19

By successfully taking over MPD GmbH Dresden, the Silicon Sensor Group reaches
a entirely new level on its way to became a global player for customized sensor
solutions.

In the late evening of September 16, 2005 Silicon Sensor Group took over 84 % of
the Microelectronic Packaging Dresden GmbH, registered at the district court
Dresden under HRB 13726, from the Zentrum Mikroelektronik Dresden AG.
In comparison to Silicon Sensor, MPD is also a fast growing high-tech company.
Already about 40 % of the sales are generated from automobile industrie supplying –
an interesting field for Silicon Sensor.

The succsesfull acquisition of MPD GmbH is advantageous for the Silicon Sensor
Group in many ways: First Silicon Sensor will reach a higher stage of production with
the packaging capacities of MPD in the field of serial production. Second MPD´s own
sensor system solutions will widen our group portfolio and put Silicon Sensor in the
position to offer its own customized packaging in the field of serial production, mainly
for the automobile branch. Third, Silicon Sensor’s business will benefit from MPD’s
very good standing with its customers for over 10 years. Fourth, the originated
synergy effects contribute to cost reductions. Together with MPD GmbH the Silicon
Sensor Group expects increased sales of about 30 Million Euro in 2006.

To finance the acquisition Silicon Sensor will carry out a capital increase. The share
price for the new shares will be € 9.90. Strong investors guaranteed for the entire
capital increase.
