Wacker Neuson places a Schuldschein loan with a volume of EUR 120 million 

(Munich, February 27, 2012) Munich-based construction equipment
manufacturer Wacker Neuson has successfully placed a Schuldschein loan on
the capital market at very attractive conditions.

Successfully brokered by Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft and UniCredit Bank
AG, the Schuldschein loan was placed with institutional investors based on
a fixed coupon and terms of five and seven years. The transaction was
subscribed at the lower end of the marketing range with a coupon rate of
3.00 percent p.a. for the five-year term and 3.66 percent p.a. for the
seven-year term. The original amount issued by Wacker Neuson was
oversubscribed by more than twice the initial offering. This, combined with
the attractive conditions, prompted the company to increase the value of
the Schuldschein loan from EUR 75 million to EUR 120 million.

'The high interest in this transaction confirms Wacker Neuson SE's
excellent credit standing. The Schuldschein loan will help to finance our
growth strategy and reduce our short-term liabilities,' explains Cem
Peksaglam, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE. 'Our existing credit lines and the
funds from the Schuldschein loan give us added flexibility and security in
what is currently a volatile financial climate,' continues Peksaglam.

The loan was placed among cooperative and savings banks, private banks and
by institutional investors from within and beyond Europe.
