Aalen (euro adhoc) - High proceeds from the sale of the Canadian
participation - Arbitration proceedings settled amicably - Further
internationalisation with wholly-owned subsidiaries

Aalen, 28 September 2012. SHW AG, one of the leading automotive
suppliers for CO2-relevant pumps and engine components as well as
brake discs has reached an agreement with its joint venture partner
for the sale of its 50% stake in STT Technologies Inc., Canada. The
sales price in Euro will be in the mid double-digit million range.
The closing of the transaction is planned until the end of October

The proportionately consolidated STT achieved a sales contribution of
EUR 31.2 million in the first six months of fiscal year 2012. This
equals approximately 15 percent of group sales.

"We shall amicably settle the arbitration proceedings and hence
strengthen considerably our financial basis for the
internationalization of our business," says CEO Dr. Wolfgang Krause,
who is responsible for the Pumps and Engine Components business

International market development with wholly-owned subsidiaries

SHW AG will follow through its internationalisation strategy with
wholly-owned subsidiaries. With the sale of its joint venture SHW
gains free access to the North American market. Therefore the NAFTA
region will be a special focus point besides the existing activities
in China and Brazil.

"We still consider the North American vehicle market as very
interesting. Based on our CO2-relevant products we see good growth
opportunities there," emphasises Dr. Krause. We also gain tailwind
from the latest initiative of the Obama administration, requiring
from the OEMs to cut fuel consumption by approximately 50 percent
until 2025.

Sale proceeds enable repayment of bank liabilities

With the sales proceeds we shall repay our bank liabilities (30 June
2012: EUR 21.4 million). "At the same time, we gain considerable room
for further growth through acquisitions," says CFO Oliver Albrecht.
