Ad hoc Release    

All Candidates for Supervisory Board of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG do
not Reach Required Majority

Unterneukirchen, June 4, 2008. At the Annual General Meeting of SKW
Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG on June 4, 2008, the Supervisory Board in
office until the end of the AGM (at about 58% each) did not reach the
majority of two thirds required by the articles of association for
reelection. Markus Zöllner, Dr. Martin Vorderwülbecke and Dr. Georg
Obermeier were therefore not reelected as members of the Supervisory Board.
Counter candidates proposed by shareholders (at about 2.5% each) did not
meet the required two thirds majority either. SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding
AG has therefore no current Supervisory Board.

All of the 4,422,250 shares of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG are traded
at the Stock Exchange in Frankfurt/M. at the Regulated Market (Prime
Standard), ISIN DE000SKWM013 (WKN SKWM01).
