Eislingen, February 5, 2016. MAG IAS GmbH announces that it has initiated
the reimbursement of its 2011/2016 bond (ISIN: DE000A1H3EY2). The funds of
50 million euros plus 3.75 million euros of interest for the period
February 8, 2015 to February 8, 2016 are deposited with the paying agent
and will be disbursed to the bondholders by Clearstream Banking AG on
February 8, 2016.

Dr. Reiner Beutel, Managing Director of MAG IAS GmbH, said: "In the past
five years, MAG has successfully realigned its business model as a machine
tool manufacturer and has positioned itself as an attractive partner for
its new majority owner, the global FFG group, by focusing on the automotive
sector and building its strong market position. We would like to thank our
bondholders for their trust over the past five years. With their investment
they have made an important contribution to MAG's success today."

Luigi Maniglio, Chairman of FFG Europe and Managing Director of MAG IAS
GmbH, added: "By partnering with MAG, FFG has positioned itself among the
top 3 machine tool manufacturers in the world. We continue to see
significant potential for the further growth of our group of companies,
most notably from the advancing digitalization of industrial production and
the increasing demand for customer-tailored services, but also from the
synergies of a combined market approach. We benefit from our global setup
with more than 50 production sites and a broad spectrum of industries that
our products and services address, from railway to automotive to aviation.
Fluctuations in demand in individual countries or industries are thus
offset and we are able to achieve solid growth. Our customers will now
benefit from our increased product portfolio and services that we offer
them as their 'one-stop-shop' for machine tools."
