Capital increase of up to 10,223,133 new shares approved

Aachen, Germany, October 23, 2013 - The Executive Board of AIXTRON SE (ISIN
DE000A0WMPJ6), a leading provider of deposition equipment to the
semiconductor industry, today has, with the consent of the Supervisory
Board, agreed to increase the Company's share capital by partially
utilizing its authorized capital of up to EUR 10,223,133 by issuing up to
10,223,133 new no-par value registered shares, corresponding to
approximately 10% of the current share capital, for cash. Shareholders'
subscription rights will be excluded.

The new shares will be admitted for trading without a prospectus in the
regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with a simultaneous
listing in the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange,
which requires additional disclosure obligations. They will have full
dividend entitlement as of January 1, 2013.

The new shares will be offered to qualified investors in Germany and
internationally via an accelerated book building process.

The proceeds from the issue will be used to further strengthen the
Company's technological leadership by investing in additional growth areas
for the Company, including projects related to technologies for the
manufacturing of Power Electronics, Organic LEDs (OLEDs) and Silicon
Semiconductor applications. Additionally, the Capital Increase will
strengthen the financial flexibility of AIXTRON by reinforcing its balance
sheet and cash position.'
