Paris, Munich, November 17th2016
- Atos and Siemens have decided to further strengthen their strategic
alliance. The companies will further increase the funding of their joint
innovation investment program by an additional €80 million to €230 million.
On the fifth anniversary of the Siemens-Atos Alliance in late October, the
Alliance Board expressed their satisfaction about the performance of the
business collaboration, which continues over-achieving the expectations by
far. Since 2011 Siemens and Atos have achieved a joint order intake of more
than €1.7 billion.

Leveraging on the increased funding the two companies have the ambition to
further accelerate their joint business until 2020. The new funding will be
focused to explore further opportunities for joint collaborations in the
fields of Industrial Security, Industrial Data Analytics, Machine
Intelligence, Service Enhancing Technologies and Web of Systems.

"The strategic alliance between Atos and Siemens that we decided to create
five
years ago is unprecedented. In those five years, we have built a unique
partnership, a joint vision and extensive business and technology
collaboration that are benefiting both customers of our two groups. Through
our joint investment fund, we have enhanced our R&D programs in areas such as
business analytics, cyber security, Internet of Things and digitalization
services worldwide. We are now entering the next level of our digital
cooperation, and I am convinced that our customers will even more benefit
from our strategic alliance in the years to come
", saidThierry Breton
, Chairman and CEO of Atos SE.

"We are very happy with the development of the Alliance over the past five
years
," saidRoland Busch, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and member of
the
Board of Atos SE
. "The Alliance has driven additional joint order intake for both companies,
it
has sparked many new innovations and it has contributed to improved
shareholder returns. I am also pleased that Atos is a key ecosystem partner
for our MindSphere industrial cloud platform
," said Busch.

The Atos-Siemens alliance, founded in 2011, forms one of the largest strategic
relationships ever between a global engineering company and a global IT
provider. Currently this successful collaboration covers key topics of the
Siemens Digitalization strategy.
