Gigaset to sell SM Electronic

Munich, January 22, 2014 - The Gigaset Group is selling its subsidiary SM
Electronic GmbH. The company is being sold to Microelectronic NH GmbH,
which is adding SME to its company group as a strategic investment. Both
parties have agreed not to disclose any information on the purchase price.

Through the sale of SM Electronic, Gigaset AG is divesting one of the last
business fields identified for discontinuation as part of the strategic
realignment and the resulting change from an affiliated company to a pure
telecommunications company. SM Electronic markets set-top boxes, satellite
systems, cables and other TV accessories. In 2012, the company posted
annual revenue of EUR17.7 million.

Gigaset recently announced its intention to enter the market for
smartphones and tablets in addition to its core DECT telephone business.
The company launched its first two tablets on the market in December 2013.
