Munich, Thursday, March 30, 2017 - Allgeier SE (ISIN DE0005086300, WKN
508630) signed a purchase agreement with Ciber, Inc., Greenwood Village,
Colorado, USA, on February 3, 2017, concerning German companies Ciber AG and
Ciber Managed Services GmbH, Ciber France SAS, as well as further assets
(see ad hoc announcement of February 3, 2017). With an ad hoc announcement
on March 22, 2017, Allgeier announced that the transaction could not be
implemented in the agreed manner, as crucial preconditions for the closing
had not been met. For this reason, the parties initiated talks about an
alternative structure to the transaction in the form of an asset deal. To
date, it has not been possible to finally implement such a transaction due
to the high level of uncertainty arising from concerns about the risk of
legal appeals.

We were informed today that the German Ciber companies have filed for
bankruptcy with the Cologne local court. From Allgeier's perspective this
means that the original purchase agreement can now no longer be implemented

Allgeier nevertheless appraises the portfolio and services of the German
Ciber companies positively, and will consequently offer to the insolvency
administrator to continue talks about the asset deal that has already been
As before, Allgeier is prepared to offer customers and employees of Ciber
Germany a rapid solution for the continuation and restructuring of the
business. We will make direct contact with the insolvency administrator to
this end.
