Pfäffikon SZ, 21. November, 2007 - Am 12. November 2007 lud OC Oerlikon Corporation AG, Pfäffikon, Schweiz (die "Anbieterin" oder "Oerlikon") die Inhaber von Obligationen der CHF 200'000'000 3,50% Anleihe, fällig am 28. August 2013, emittiert durch die Saurer AG, Arbon, Schweiz (Valorennummer 2 649 825) (die "Anleihe", deren Inhaber die "Obligationäre" und Saurer AG die "Emittentin") ein, ihre Obligationen zum Kauf anzudienen (das "Angebot"). Das Angebot ist am 20. November 2007 um 12.00 Uhr MEZ abgelaufen (das "Ablaufdatum").

Resultat, Annahme und Abwicklung
Bis zum Ablaufdatum sind Obligationen in Wert von insgesamt CHF 190'760'000 gültig zum Kauf angedient worden ("Angediente Obligationen"); dies entspricht 95.38% des sich im Umlauf befindlichen Kapitals der Anleihe. Die Anbieterin erklärt hiermit, dass sie alle Angedienten Obligationen zum Kauf akzeptiert. Somit werden der Angebotspreis von 100.250% und die auf den Obligationen bis zum Abwicklungsdatum aufgelaufenen Zinsen am Abwicklungsdatum an die Obligationäre ausbezahlt. Die Abwicklung ist für den 26. November 2007 vorgesehen.

Wie bereits angekündigt ist es die Absicht der Anbieterin, unmittelbar nach Abwicklung des Angebots von der Emittentin zu verlangen, eine Anleihensgläubigerversammlung einzuberufen. Falls diese Anleihensgläubigerversammlung die vorzeitige Rückzahlung von 100% der Anleihe gültig beschliesst und die zuständige kantonale Behörde diesen Beschluss genehmigt, werden alle Obligationen, die nicht im Rahmen dieses Angebots angedient worden sind, vorzeitig zurückbezahlt. Im Falle einer solchen Anleihensgläubigerversammlung beabsichtigt die Anbieterin, mit den von ihr gehaltenen Obligationen für einen Beschluss zur vorzeitigen Rückzahlung zu einem Preis von 100.125% zu stimmen.
