Attendance of shareholders at the General Meeting

Entitlement to attend the General Meeting and to exercise voting rights and all other shareholders' rights at the General Meeting is conditional on the holding of shares on the record date, i.e. 24.00 - midnight - (CET/CEST Local Time Vienna), June 25, 2012.

Only shareholders who provide evidence of their shareholdings on the record date are entitled to attend the General Meeting.

Deposit bearer shares

Evidence of shareholdings on the relevant date must be furnished by way of a confirmation issued by the bank where the shareholder has deposited his/her shares (deposit confirmation) if the bank is domiciled in a member state of the EEA or OECD. Shareholders who have deposited their shares with a bank which does not meet these criteria are requested to contact the Company.

The deposit confirmation must be issued in German or English in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions (Section 10a Stock Corporation Act) and contain the following information:

1. Details of the issuing bank: Name (company) and address;

2. Shareholder details: Name (company) and address, date of birth in the case of natural persons, corporate register and register number in the case of legal persons;

3. Deposit number or other relevant description;

4. Details of the shares: Number of shares and their designation or ISIN;

5. Express declaration that the confirmation relates to the deposit holding as of 24.00 - midnight - (CET/CEST Local Time Vienna), June 25, 2012 (record date).

Deposit confirmations must be received by July 2, 2012, 24.00 - midnight - (CET/CEST Local Time Vienna), by the Company in any of the following ways:

- via mail, courier or in person to:
AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft,
c/o Martin Theyer, Fabriksgasse 13, 8700 Leoben-Hinterberg;

- as an un-editable document (PDF) in electronic form to email:
anmeldung.ats@hauptversammlung.at;

- by fax to +43-1-8900 500 87.

According to Section 262 (20) Stock Corporation Act receipt of deposit confirmations via internationally used specific secured communication net (SWIFT) shall be excluded for the present General Meeting and until further notice.

Transmissions of the deposit confirmation to the Company shall also constitute registration of the shareholder for the attendance of the General Meeting.

Banks are requested to send deposit confirmations where possible collectively (in list format). The shareholders are not blocked by registering their attendance at the General Meeting or by sending deposit confirmations; therefore shareholders may freely dispose of their shares after registration or transmission of a deposit confirmation.

Representation of shareholders at the general Meeting

Each shareholder who is entitled to attend the General Meeting has the right to appoint a natural or legal person to represent him/her. The proxy holder attends the General Meeting on behalf of the shareholder and has the same rights as the shareholder represented. Each power of attorney must name the proxy holder(s). Shareholders are not restricted in terms of the number of persons they appoint to represent them and in their choice of proxy holder, however, the Company itself, or a member of the Management or Supervisory Boards, may only exercise the right to vote as a proxy holder if the shareholder has provided express instructions regarding the individual agenda items.

A shareholder may grant power of attorney to the bank where he/she has deposited his/her shares subject to the agreement of that bank. In such case, in addition to the deposit confirmation, it is sufficient for the bank to provide the Company with a declaration by one of the permitted means (see above) that it has been granted a power of attorney; the power of attorney itself needs not to be sent to the Company in such case.

A power of attorney may be revoked by the shareholder. The revocation becomes effective upon receipt by the Company.

Declarations concerning the granting and revoking of power of attorneys may be sent to the Company in text form, not later than July 4, 2012, 4.00 pm (CET/CEST Local Time Vienna), by one of the following means:

- via mail, courier or in person to:
AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft,
c/o Martin Theyer, Fabriksgasse 13, 8700 Leoben-Hinterberg;

- as an un-editable document (PDF) in electronic form to email:
anmeldung.ats@hauptversammlung.at;

- by fax to +43-1-8900 500 87.

On the day of the General Meeting, the transmission is only valid in person through submission with registration for the General Meeting at the place of assembly.

As a special service and in line with our principles of Corporate Governance, the shareholders are provided with the option of having their voting right exercised in accordance with their instructions by Dr. Michael Knap, an independent proxy holder of the Interessensverband für Anleger [Association for Investors] (IVA), Feldmühlgasse 22, A-1130 Vienna. In the case of interest, a direct approach is possible under tel.+43-1-8763343-30, fax +43-1-8763343-39, or email michael.knap@iva.or.at. The representative will be present at the General Meeting and reachable during the General Meeting via weisungen.ats@hauptversammlung.at.

The shareholder must request a deposit confirmation from the bank where his/her shares are deposited. Dr. Michael Knap must be granted a written authorization to act as a proxy holder on this deposit confirmation (or on a separate sheet). The deposit confirmation and written authorization must be sent by the shareholder to Dr. Knap, c/o IVA, Feldmühlgasse 22, 1130 Vienna. As the deposit confirmation and original power of attorney must be received by the IVA in time before the General Meeting, we would request that shareholders bear postal delivery durations in mind.

The shareholder must provide Dr. Knap with instructions as to how he (or a sub-proxy authorized by Dr. Knap) should exercise the voting right. Dr. Knap exercises the voting right exclusively on the basis of the instructions given by the shareholder. Without express instructions the power of attorney is invalid. Should separate votes be taken on each clause of an agenda item, an instruction provided in connection therewith shall apply to each sub-item. Please note that Dr. Knap does not accept any requests to make comments, object to General Meeting resolutions, ask questions or propose resolutions.

Resolutions to be put on the vote are posted on the Company's website at www.ats.net (Category Investors > IR Events > Annual General Meeting) as soon as they come to the knowledge of the Company.

We recommend that shareholders use the form available on the internet at www.ats.net (Category Investors > IR Events > Annual General Meeting) to grant or revoke authorizations.

Shareholders' rights in connection with the General Meeting

Shareholders whose holdings represent a combined total of at least 5% of the capital stock since at least three months may require in writing the inclusion and announcement of additional General Meeting agenda items by June 14, 2012. A resolution and justification thereof must be submitted for each agenda item.

Shareholders whose holdings represent a combined total of at least 1% of the capital stock may submit resolutions in text form for each agenda item, to be accompanied by a justification, by June 26, 2012, and require the resolutions to be posted on the Company's website with the names of the relevant shareholders and the justification.

Every shareholder may propose motions during the General Meeting with regard to each agenda item without prior notification.

Further information regarding these rights, in particular how to submit resolutions to the Company and evidence shareholdings is now available on the internet at www.ats.net (Category Investors > IR Events > Annual General Meeting).

According to Section 118 Stock Corporation Act every shareholder has the right to request information regarding Company matters at the General Meeting, provided that such information is necessary for the proper assessment of the agenda item. The duty to provide information also covers legal and business relationships between the Company and Group companies, and the condition of the Group and its consolidated subsidiaries. Such information must comply with the principles of diligent and truthful accountability. Information may be denied if, according to reasonable business judgment, it could cause significant harm to the Company or a Group company, or if the provision of information would be unlawful.

Total number of shares and voting rights

According to Section 83 (2) (1) Stock Exchange Act we announce, that the Company has issued 25,900,000 no-par value bearer shares and every no-par value share confers one vote. The Company holds 2,577,412 treasury shares, which do not confer any voting rights according to Section 65 (5) Stock Corporation Act; in consideration of the treasury shares, the total number of voting shares amounts to 23,322,588. The mentioned figures in this paragraph were raised on the cut-off day May 31, 2012 and may be subject to changes up to the date of the General Meeting.

Admission to the General Meeting

To ensure the smooth process of the entrance control, shareholders are kindly asked to arrive in time before the beginning of the General Meeting. Admission to obtain ballot forms commences at 9.00 a.m.

Shareholders or their proxies are advised that they must present an official identification document (driver's license, passport or identity card) to confirm their identities upon admission to the General Meeting.

The General Meeting is the key governing body of a stock corporation as it is the forum for the Company's owners - the shareholders. We therefore hope you will appreciate that we cannot turn a General Meeting into an event for guests, much as we value such interest, and that attendance by guest is limited and only possible after prior registration by telephone (Tel. +43 3842 200-5909).
