Paris,  October 2, 2017 - Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today
announces  its project  to acquire  Siemens Convergence  Creators GmbH  (CVC), a
global  multi-industry digital transformation  solutions provider, headquartered
in  Vienna.  With  its  highly  skilled  engineers  and  a  total  headcount  of
approximately  800 staff, CVC delivers software based solutions in the fields of
communication  networks,  service  and  customer  management,  public safety and
security, multimedia infotainment, as well as space technology.

CVC  was initially an internal innovative R&D and solutions partner for multiple
Siemens  Business Units  (BUs). In  2016, Siemens completed  its carve out as an
independent  Siemens  BU  with  it's  own  IP resources and an external customer
strategy.

Focused  on innovative  R&D and  turnkey solutions,  CVC would  accelerate Atos'
technology  leap, bringing specific  software and hardware  IP assets notably to
enlarge  its cybersecurity and communication solutions. These combined offerings
would  strengthen Atos' credentials  and ability to  deliver the latest mission-
critical  systems and secured networks while increasing Atos' penetration in the
Telco  market and  enable access  to high-growth  markets such  as satellite and
civil airplane manufacturers and operators.

CVC  presence in Germany, the US, and  Central and Eastern Europe (with delivery
centres  in Croatia and Romania providing  digital expertise), together with its
powerful network of partners, would offer Atos a strong basis for activities all
over the world.

The  transaction is  expected to  close end  of December  2017 and is subject to
information  / consultation by employee representative's  bodies' as well as the
approvals of the regulatory and antitrust authorities.
