CRAWLEY, England -- September 4, 2013

Edwards Group Limited (NASDAQ: EVAC), a leading manufacturer of sophisticated
vacuum products and abatement systems and a global provider of related
value-added services, is attending the 19^th International Vacuum Conference
(IVC-19) in Paris, September 9^th-13^th, 2013.

Edwards has an impressive presence at the show with a large range of pumps
available, showcasing technology leadership through innovative products.
Visitors to the stand will also be able to meet with experts from Edwards and
learn how to optimize their vacuum processes with minimal cost of ownership.

“We are delighted to have such a strong presence at this event, demonstrating
our leading edge products and applications expertise. We continuously strive
to deliver the best vacuum pumping systems to our customers, enabling cost
effective and environmentally friendly solutions,” commented Dr Stephan
Becker, Vice President-Sales, General Vacuum at Edwards.

During the conference, Edwards’ experts are presenting two technical papers on
vacuum science and applications. Dr Andrew Chew and Dr Simon Bruce will
present, respectively, ‘Review of 30 years of dry vacuum pumping’ and ‘Large
industrial dry vacuum systems for vacuum metallurgy and other applications’.

Edwards has recently acquired Gamma Vacuum, a manufacturer of ultra-high
vacuum (UHV) pumps, with a very strong reputation for Ion and Titanium
Sublimation pumps. Edwards now offers the complete range of dry pumps from UHV
through to atmospheric pumping, and has the largest offering of all vacuum
companies to the High Energy Physics and R&D markets. There will be a TiTan
Ion Pump and DIGITEL controller available on the exhibition booth.

Also on display at the Edwards’ booth will be:

  *Operational nXDS15i. The nXDS dry scroll pump’s advanced scroll form and
    tip seal technologies deliver exceptional vacuum performance in
    scientific, laboratory and R&D applications. It features the latest in tip
    seal technology, giving significantly longer life between tip seal
    changes, and is hermetically sealed for a lubricant-free vacuum.
  *GXS dry screw pump. The GXS incorporates unique screw technology and
    delivers higher throughput and productivity, with key environmental
    advantages. The GXS is gaining popularity amongst industrial vacuum pump
    users due to it being fast, robust, and with class-leading low power and
    utilities consumption.
  *STP magnetically levitated turbomolecular pump. The use of magnetic
    bearings ensures ultra low noise and vibration with a consistent reliable
    performance. Service is often not required for many years. The STP is an
    ideal choice for critical and demanding applications.
  *T-Station 75. An entry-level turbopumping system, which combines a
    turbopump with a choice of either an oil sealed backing pump, or a
    diaphragm pump where a totally dry solution is required. The T-Station is
    ideal for general laboratory use.
