Hexagon: Hexagon to acquire SAFEmine, a leading safety solutions company serving the mining industry

Hexagon, a leading global provider of design, measurement and
visualisation technologies, has signed an agreement to acquire
SAFEmine, a leader in the field of safety solutions for mining
operations.

Headquartered in Baar, Switzerland, SAFEmine provides comprehensive
traffic safety solutions for vehicles operating in open-pit mines.
Built around a compact collision avoidance system, SAFEmine's
technology increases situational awareness and reduces accidents by
actively alerting the vehicle operator to imminent threats. The
product line includes collision avoidance, driver fatigue monitoring,
advanced tracking radar and vehicle information systems. SAFEmine
has a global presence, with subsidiaries and local partners around
the world and products in use in more than 45 mines worldwide.

"This acquisition is significant for our customers in mining and other
sectors that are increasing the use of technologies in order to
operate with the highest amount of efficiency while also improving
safety conditions," said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén.
"SAFEmine's strong presence and technology leadership not only open
doors to cross-sell complementary Hexagon offerings to the same
market, but create integration opportunities across multiple
businesses within Hexagon."

SAFEmine will be fully consolidated as of today. The acquisition has
no significant impact on Hexagon's earnings. The company's turnover
for 2013 amounted to approximately 13 million EUR.
