Arbon, 2 December 2015. EDAG, an independent engineering services provider to the global automotive industry, has
successfully completed its initial public offering (IPO). Together with the underwriters, EDAG set the issue price at
EUR 19.00 per share. The offer was substantially oversubscribed at the issue price. 10,062,500 offered shares (including
the overallotment shares) were placed in the offering. As a result, the total issuance volume of the EDAG IPO (assuming
full exercise of the greenshoe option) amounts to EUR 191,187,500. ATON GmbH, the previous sole owner of EDAG, will
receive the gross proceeds of the offering. ATON intends to keep a significant shareholding in EDAG in order to continue
shaping the strategic development of the company long-term and supporting its growth.

"We are extremely pleased with the high demand for EDAG shares," says Thomas Eichelmann, CEO of ATON GmbH and chairman
of the board of directors of EDAG. "The strong international interest from many investors confirms that the market
shares our belief in EDAG's growth potential. Our priority over the past years has been to shift the focus of the
company on the automotive sector and advanced technologies. During that time, we have grown profitably and continued to
expand EDAG's international footprint. We can now press on with this growth strategy as a listed company. EDAG is
optimally positioned today to take a leading role in a potential consolidation of the engineering services market."

Assuming a full exercise of the greenshoe option, around 36.75 percent of the total 25 million shares will be in free
float. The majority of shares have been placed internationally with institutional investors. EDAG employees received
shares with a total value of about EUR 4.3 million via a dedicated employee stock ownership scheme and shares with a
total value of about EUR 16.6 million have been placed with an affiliate of the selling shareholder, subject to a
lock-up commitment.

The selling shareholder, ATON GmbH, has committed to not sell additional EDAG shares and to not carry out any capital
increase or similar corporate measures for a period of six months from the first day of trading without approval of the
joint global coordinators.

The shares of the company start trading today in the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
