STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- November 15, 2012

Regulatory News:

Atlas Copco today hosts its annual capital markets day, taking place in
Örebro, Sweden. The event will provide an update of the Group’s strategy and
market situation, and an in-depth view of activities in the Mining and Rock
Excavation Technique business area.

“I am proud to welcome the financial community to Atlas Copco in Örebro. This
is one of our main hubs for production and innovation related to mining and
civil engineering, and it is an important location for the future development
of our company,” said Ronnie Leten, President and CEO of the Atlas Copco
Group.

Ronnie Leten confirmed Atlas Copco’s most recent market outlook statement,
that overall demand for the Group’s products and services is expected to
decline somewhat in the near term.

“Because of this softening trend we are taking measures to adapt production
capacity where needed, also here in Örebro,” Ronnie Leten said. “We remain
focused on investing in research and product development, and will today share
how our work can increase the productivity of our customers.”

The capital markets day includes presentations by Ronnie Leten and Chief
Financial Officer Hans Ola Meyer, Mining and Rock Excavation Technique
President Bob Fassl, Industrial Technique President Mats Rahmström, and
division presidents from the Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business
area.

The presentations will focus on how acquisitions have contributed to Atlas
Copco’s growth over the years, and the flexibility and resilience offered by
Atlas Copco’s business model. Other topics are important trends and
innovations in the area of mining and rock excavation, such as automation in
mining, mechanical rock excavation and the need for a differentiated offer in
local markets. The presentations will be available through
www.atlascopco.com/ir as from November 16.
