The capital increase and reallocation of the shares of its major shareholder
Artemis Beteiligungen III AG mark the successful completion of Feintool
International Holding AG's repositioning on the capital market. The share
offering of 1,494,802 registered shares was placed in its entirety; the
subscription and placing price per registered share was CHF 62. Listing and
initial trading of the new registered shares is set for 21 June 2013.

As part of the issue of subscription rights and the international placement
with investors, Feintool's Board of Directors, together with the other
involved parties, fixed the subscription/placement price at CHF 62 per
registered share.

In the subscription rights offering, 54,997 new registered shares were
subscribed by existing shareholders while 502,874 new registered shares and a
total of 936,931 registered shares of Artemis Beteiligungen III AG (including
the greenshoe option totalling 150,000 registered shares) and Schroth
Besitzgemeinschaft m.b.H. u. Co. KG were placed as part of an international
offering. As a result, the free float rises from 11.6% to at least 38.69%
while the stake held by Artemis Beteiligungen III AG decreases to 50.1%.

Assuming the complete exercise of the greenshoe option, net issue proceeds
(after deduction of commission, taxes and costs) of approximately CHF 32.6
million will accrue to Feintool. The company intends to use the net issue
proceeds primarily for investments in continued growth for the purpose of
participating in OEM new product and automotive supplier programmes, notably
in the USA, China and Europe.

Following the capital increase, Feintool's share capital totals 44,629,710,
divided into 4,462,971 registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 10 each.
The new registered shares are deemed wholly equal to the existing Feintool
registered shares. The listing and initial trading of the new registered
shares on SIX Swiss Exchange is due to commence on 21 June 2013. The planned
payment and delivery date is 24 June 2013.

"The additional net funds of CHF 32.6 million will now enable us to invest
proactively in the expansion of our sites and thereby harness the market's
growth potential for the long term," says Board Chairman Alexander von
Witzleben. "We would like to thank all existing and new shareholders for
showing us that they believe in our future."
