Ad hoc release

Capital increase of 10% and secondary placement of existing shares

The management board of RIB Software AG ("RIB") today resolved, with the
approval of the company's supervisory board, to increase its share capital
from authorized capital by 10%, i.e. from currently EUR 38,715,420.00 by
EUR 3,871,541.00 to EUR 42,586,961.00. The pre-emptive rights of the
existing shareholders have been excluded. It is anticipated that the
3,871,541 new shares will be offered to institutional investors in Germany
and other European countries on 14 and 15 July 2014 by way of an
accelerated bookbuilding procedure. The transaction will be led by
Berenberg (Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG) as sole global coordinator and
sole bookrunner, along with equinet Bank AG as co-lead manager, who have
guaranteed the placement of the new shares subject to certain conditions
precedent by way of a backstop obligation. Settlement of the transaction is
scheduled for 17 July 2014.

Concurrently, if a sufficient demand for further shares is given,
approximately up to 2 million shares will be offered from the holdings of
existing shareholders. The selling shareholders include members of the
company's management board, who will nonetheless retain at least two thirds
of their respective shareholdings in any event.

The aim of the transaction is to increase the free float and the liquidity
in the company's shares. The company is planning to use the offering
proceeds for further expansion, particularly the acquisition of software
providers with a comparable or complementary range of services. In
addition, the company intends to invest in big data technology, such as the
co-sharing of HPDC high performance data centres, and in in-memory database
technology.
