SINGAPORE -- August 29, 2013

Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: KLIC) ("K&S") today announced the
launch of its new ACS Pro^TM Capillary, for advanced copper wire bonding

The new ACS Pro^TM Capillary provides excellent bond-ability control with fine
wire diameters. Using advanced material development and an innovative design,
the quality and strength of both the 1^st (Intermetallic Coverage) and 2^nd
bond are maintained over the capillary’s usable life.

The ACS Pro^TM Capillary significantly improves design dynamics, and extends
the copper process window with enhancement of process portability and response
consistency. The consistent performance of the capillary eases the production
fan-out process. The improved wear resistance material used for the new ACS
Pro^TM Capillary also enhances workability to help drive productivity.

Nelson Wong, Kulicke & Soffa’s Vice President, Wire Bond Solutions Business
Unit, remarked, “Kulicke & Soffa continues to leverage its strong R&D process
knowledge and extensive experience in delivering copper capillaries. With ACS
Pro^TM, ^  customers will benefit from the excellent bond-ability control,
consistent performance, while also lowering their cost of ownership. The ACS
Pro^TM is designed ^  to improve copper bond quality and process stability
enabling process portability and response uniformity.”

The ACS Pro^TM Capillary  will debut at the Semicon Taiwan show at the Taipei
World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall from September 4-6, 2013.
