SLM Solutions: New order intake in H1 2014 underpins positive expectations

Luebeck, July 2, 2014 - SLM Solutions Group AG, a leading provider of
metal-based additive manufacturing technology (also referred to as "3D
printing"), sees the positive trend in new order intake as of the end of
the first half of the year as confirmation of its optimistic expectation
for the current 2014 financial year.

The uptrend in SLM Solutions' order book position continued during the
first six months of 2014, as expected: New order intake was boosted to a
total of 19 machines - almost double last year's 10 machines. These orders
include two orders for the SLM 500HL flagship product, currently the most
productive laser melting system on the market. This shift towards
high-value systems boosts the total value of the machines that have been
ordered, the most important driver of corporate sales revenues.

Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions Group AG, expressed his
satisfaction: "Since the start of the year, we have observed a positive
trend in our new order intake, and consequently regard this as a
confirmation of our expectation for the full year. Internationally
operating industrial companies are currently making a transition to
deploying laser melting systems also for the direct component
manufacturing. This is affecting components as varied as hip implants and
dental prostheses, complex tooling applications, and aerospace components.
The attractive market segment for metal-based 3D printing is about to pass
the inflection point, and is now experiencing a growth boom from which SLM
Solutions, in particular, will benefit as one of the technology leaders."
