Dissemination of a Voting Rights Announcement, transmitted by
DGAP - a company of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Ahorner Alpha Beteiligungs GmbH, Grünwald, Germany, Ahorner Beta
Beteiligungs GmbH, Grünwald, Germany, Louise Daxer-Piëch GmbH, Salzburg,
Austria, and Ahorner Holding GmbH, Salzburg, Austria, (together the
'Notifying Parties') informed us according to § 27a (1) sentence 1 of the
WpHG on September 11, 2013 on the following with respect to their
respective Voting Rights Announcements according to § 21 (1) of the WpHG of
the same date:

The exceeding of the voting rights thresholds are not due to an acquisition
of shares by the Notifying Parties but are due to an attribution (for the
first time) of voting rights attached to shares held by a subsidiary of the
Notifying Parties (§ 22 (1) no. 1 of the WpHG).

1. Aims pursued through the acquisition of voting rights (§ 27a (1)
sentence 3 of the WpHG).

a) The facts underlying the attribution of the voting rights neither serve
to generate trading profits for the Notifying Parties nor to implement
strategic aims.

b) The Notifying Parties do not intend to obtain additional voting rights
within the next twelve months through acquisition or in any other way. A
possible acquisition of further voting rights by attribution of shares that
are acquired by Truck & Bus GmbH due to compensation offers pursuant to the
AktG remains unaffected.

c) The Notifying Parties currently do not seek to influence the filling of
the issuer's administration, management or supervisory bodies.

d) The Notifying Parties do not seek to materially change the issuer's
capital structure, particularly not the equity and debt financing ratio or
the dividend policy.

2. Origin of funds employed (§ 27a (1) sentence 4 of the WpHG)

The voting rights were only acquired by the attribution of voting rights
pursuant to § 22 (1) no. 1 of the WpHG. Own or borrowed funds were not used
to finance the acquisition of the voting rights.
