On August 19, 2014, Deutsche Private Equity Administration GmbH, Munich, Germany, submitted the following notification to us according to article 27a section 1 sentence 1 of the WpHG:

“We refer to our notification according to article 21 of the WpHG dated August 1, 2014 concerning the exceeding of the thresholds of 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% of the voting rights in First Sensor AG, Berlin.

These voting right thresholds were not exceeded due to the purchase of shares in First Sensor AG by Deutsche Private Equity Administration GmbH, but rather due to the first-time allocation of voting rights from shares held by Alegria Beteiligungs¬gesellschaft mbH.

With regard to the purpose of the acquisition of voting rights, we hereby provide the following information according to article 27a section 1 sentences 1 and 3 of the WpHG:

1. The acquisition of voting rights that led to the thresholds being exceeded is the result of an agreement on the exercise of our shareholder rights with DPE Deutsche Private Equity GmbH as the shareholder of Parcom Deutschland I GmbH & Co. KG with respect to the latter’s indirect equity interest in First Sensor AG on the basis of the takeover bid published by FS Technology Holding S.à r.l. on July 28, 2014 (“takeover bid”) that is not aimed at the realization of strategic objectives or the generation of trading profits.

2. Other than the allocation of voting rights from the shares in First Sensor AG allocated to Deutsche Private Equity Administration GmbH following the successful settlement of the takeover bid, no decision to acquire or otherwise obtain additional voting rights in First Sensor AG has been taken to date. Accordingly, the right to acquire or otherwise obtain voting rights in First Sensor AG in the next twelve months is reserved.

3. No influence over the composition of the administrative, management or supervisory bodies of First Sensor AG is sought above and beyond the exercise of voting rights at the Annual General Meeting of First Sensor AG by our indirect subsidiary Alegria Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH.

4. No material change to the capital structure of First Sensor AG is sought, particularly with regard to the debt/equity ratio and the dividend policy of First Sensor AG.

The voting rights in First Sensor AG were acquired by Deutsche Private Equity Administration GmbH solely as a result of the allocation of voting rights in First Sensor AG in accordance with article 22 section 1 sentence 1 no. 1 WpHG. Deutsche Private Equity Administration GmbH did not provide any equity or debt financing for the acquisition of voting rights in First Sensor AG.”
