* Stake in Atos unaffected by sale - Siemens to retain its approximate 15%
interest in Atos as agreed

MUNICH, Germany--(Business Wire)--
Regulatory News: 

Siemens has successfully completed the pre-announced sale of its €250-million
Atos convertible bonds at a price of €56.44 per bond. The disposal was made
through a private placement to institutional investors by means of an
accelerated bookbuilding. The proceeds from this transaction totaled
approximately €304 million. 

Siemens remains the holder of an approximate 15% interest in Atos. In view of
the very good operational and strategic cooperation with Atos, among other
factors, Siemens intends to retain its interest in Atos as initially agreed
between the two groups.

representatives may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. Such
statements are based on the current expectations and certain assumptions of
Siemens` management, and are, therefore, subject to certain risks and
uncertainties. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond Siemens` control,
affect Siemens` operations, performance, business strategy and results and could
cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Siemens to be
materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that
may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements or anticipated on

limited to, the matters described in Item 3: Key information - Risk factors of

"Risks" of our most recent annual report prepared in accordance with the German

on Form 20-F and in our other filings with the SEC, which are available on the
Siemens website, www.siemens.com, and on the SEC`s website, www.sec.gov. Should
one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying
assumptions prove incorrect, actual results, performance or achievements of
Siemens may vary materially from those described in the relevant forward-looking
statement as being expected, anticipated, intended, planned, believed, sought,
estimated or projected. Siemens neither intends, nor assumes any obligation, to
update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of developments which
