May 21, 2014

Release according to article 26 section 1 of the WpHG (the German
Securities Trading Act) with the objective of Europe-wide distribution

On May 20, 2014, FS Technology Holding S.à r.l., Luxembourg, Luxembourg,
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
April 24, 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 FS Technology Holding S.à r.l., but rather due
to the first-time allocation of voting rights from shares held by Alegria
Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH, a subsidiary of FS Technology Holding S.à
r.l.

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 intragroup restructuring that is not aimed at
    the realization of strategic objectives or the generation of trading
    profits.

 2. 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 the subsidiary of FS Technology Holding S.à r.l.

 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.

As the voting right thresholds were exceeded as the result of intragroup
restructuring, FS Technology Holding S.à r.l. did not provide any equity or
debt financing
for the acquisition of the voting rights.'
