Ad hoc Disclosure (Inside Information according to Article 17 MAR)

Software AG decides to cancel treasury shares and to decrease the share capital

The Management Board of Software AG (TecDAX, ISIN DE000A2GS401 / SOW) decided today to redeem 2,400,000 treasury shares which had been acquired by the company in previous years based on various buy-back authorizations and to decrease the share capital accordingly by EUR 2,400,000. This corresponds to 3.14 percent of the share capital before redemption and capital decrease. The redemption is based on the authorization of the General Assembly of Software AG of May 31, 2016

After the share capital decrease, the current share capital of Software AG of EUR 76,400,000 will amount to EUR 74,000,000 and will be divided into 74,000,000 shares with a proportional share in the share capital amounting to EUR 1.00 per share. After the redemption of 2,400,000 treasury shares, Software AG will still hold 23,761 treasury shares. This corresponds to 0.03 percent of the decreased share capital.

The redemption is expected to be completed shortly.
