OHB AG: Fresh equity issued by Aerotech Peissenberg - OHB's stake
reduced

13.05.2014 / 11:11

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Aerotech Peissenberg GmbH & Co. KG (ATP), in which OHB AG has hitherto held
a majority stake via MT Aerospace Holding, issued fresh equity of EUR 2.0
million on May 13, 2014.

The proceeds from the issue will improve ATP's financial situation,
allowing it to successfully continue on the restructuring and growth course
it has already adopted.

The sole subscriber of the issue was Apollo Capital Partners GmbH (with 30%
minority shareholder of MT Aerospace Holding), which has thus assumed a
majority interest in and industrial control over ATP.

Accordingly, the company will no longer be consolidated by OHB AG. However,
the Group will remain a non-controlling shareholder and recognize this
investment using the equity method of accounting.

Looking forward, the OHB Group's strategy of concentrating on projects in
application and benefit-oriented space technology in the areas of
navigation, telecommunications and weather/earth observation will be
additionally stepped up. OHB is increasingly benefiting from the evolution
of space technology away from a government-initiated research-driven
pursuit towards an application-oriented activity addressing customers from
a wide range of different sectors.
