Siltronic resolves upon Dividend Policy

Munich, Germany, 14 September 2017 - The shareholders of Siltronic AG shall
adequately participate in the positive business performance of the Siltronic
Group including the significant improvement of its results and Free Cash
Flow since the beginning of the fiscal year.

Therefore, the Executive Board today resolved upon a dividend policy that
aims at distributing around 40% of the consolidated earnings of the
Siltronic Group according to IFRS principles, attributable to the
shareholders.

This dividend policy reflects the current objective of the Executive Board
and may be adapted at a later stage. Preconditions for the dividend payment
are the availability of a distributable net profit and a sufficient
liquidity development of Siltronic AG. In addition, the dividend payment
requires each year respective proposals on the appropriation of profits by
the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board, whereby, however, each of
these Boards may deviate from the dividend policy due to the then current
circumstances. The General Meeting resolves upon the distribution of the
dividend.
