Premstaetten, Austria (6 December 2019) -- ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide
supplier of high performance sensor solutions, is pleased to announce that today
the acceptance threshold of 55% for its all-cash takeover offer for OSRAM Licht
AG ("OSRAM") (the "Offer") announced on 7 November 2019 has been satisfied. The
period in which acceptances can continue to be booked into the Offer continues
until Monday, 9 December 2019 and the final results of the Offer will be
published on Tuesday, 10 December 2019.

"We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in achieving the
minimum acceptance threshold in our Offer for OSRAM," says Alexander Everke, CEO
of ams. "We would like to thank OSRAM shareholders for placing their trust in us
and understanding the compelling strategic and industrial logic of the
transaction. We look forward to creating a European based global leader in
sensor solutions and photonics through the combination of ams and OSRAM. Based
on this shared objective, we will work closely with the OSRAM management team
and all OSRAM and ams stakeholders to make the combination a resounding success
and create a strong path forward for OSRAM and ams. OSRAM shareholders who have
not yet tendered their shares can still do so during the additional acceptance
period, ending on 24 December 2019."

"Following ams' successful takeover bid for OSRAM, we can now jointly establish
a world class photonics and sensor champion," said Olaf Berlien, CEO of OSRAM
Licht AG.

Further steps to implement the transaction are expected to commence in the very
near future and ams continues to expect the closing of the transaction in the
first half of 2020. ams intends to invite its shareholders to an Extraordinary
General Meeting ("EGM") to be held in January 2020, to resolve on the proposed
equity capital raising in conjunction with the Offer. Subject to such
resolution, ams currently expects to execute the equity capital raising in a
timely manner. Further details on the transaction will be communicated in due
