AIXTRON SE: Lapse of Takeover Offer by Grand Chip Investment GmbH

Herzogenrath, Germany, December 8, 2016 - AIXTRON SE (FSE: AIXA, AIXC;
NASDAQ: AIXG), one of the world's leading providers of deposition equipment
to the semiconductor industry, announced today that Grand Chip Investment
GmbH (GCI) declared today that the voluntary public takeover offer for the
acquisition of all shares, including all shares represented by ADSs, of
AIXTRON SE (AIXTRON) by GCI published on July 29, 2016 has lapsed due to
the non-fulfillment of an offer condition.

According to the announcement of GCI, the offer condition of the clearance
of the transaction by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United
States (CFIUS) or the U.S. President laid out in Section 4.2.2 (ii) of the
offer document has not been fulfilled as a consequence of the order of the
President of the United States dated December 2, 2016 prohibiting the
acquisition of the U.S. business of AIXTRON by the Chinese bidder.

Hence, the public takeover process initiated by GCI has come to end in a
way that it cannot be consummated any more.

The announcement of GCI can be downloaded from the website of the German
Federal Gazette, Bundesanzeiger (www.bundesanzeiger.de).

Additional information

This document is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to
purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities.  The takeover
offer for the outstanding ordinary shares (including ordinary shares
represented by American depositary shares) of AIXTRON SE commenced on 29
July 2016.  The terms and conditions of the takeover offer have been
published in, and the solicitation and offer to purchase ordinary shares
(including ordinary shares represented by American depositary shares) are
made only pursuant to, the offer document and related offer materials
prepared by Grand Chip Investment GmbH and as approved by the German
Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für
Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, "BaFin").  AIXTRON SE has filed a
Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with the SEC with
respect to the takeover offer on 11 August 2016; in addition, AIXTRON SE's
Management Board and Supervisory Board has published a statement pursuant
to Sec. 27 of the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act
(Wertpapiererwerbs- und Übernahmegesetz, WpÜG).  The now amended takeover
offer as well as its English translation is available on the internet at
www.grandchip-aixtron.com.

Acceptance of the takeover offer by shareholders that are resident outside
Germany and the United States may be subject to further legal requirements.
With respect to the acceptance of the takeover offer outside Germany and
the United States, no responsibility is assumed for the compliance with
such legal requirements applicable in the respective jurisdiction.

The so called Tender Offer Statement (including the offer document, a
related letter of transmittal and other related offer materials) and the
Solicitation/Recommendation Statement, as they may be amended from time to
time, as well as the Management and Supervisory Board's statement pursuant
to Sec. 27 WpÜG (as amended from time to time), contain important
information that should be read carefully before any decision is made with
respect to the takeover offer because they, and not this document, govern
the terms and conditions of the takeover offer.  Those materials and other
documents filed by Grand Chip Investment GmbH or AIXTRON SE with the SEC
are available at no charge on the SEC's web site at www.sec.gov.  In
addition, Grand Chip Investment GmbH's Tender Offer Statement and other
documents it has filed with the SEC will be available at www.grandchip-
aixtron.com.
