SAF-HOLLAND sells AerWay product line

Luxembourg, December 11, 2015 +++ The SAF-HOLLAND Group, Luxembourg, is
divesting its Canadian non-core activities in agricultural equipment
through the sale of its AerWay product line.

The commercial vehicle supplier SAF-HOLLAND is following through with the
planned divestment of soil loosening and cultivation equipment by selling
the AerWay product line to the Canadian company Salford Inc., a specialist
in soil tillage machinery headquartered in Salford, Ontario.

This product line has been a peripheral activity since the merger of SAF,
Germany, and Holland, USA, in 2007 and does not represent a core business
of the SAF-HOLLAND Group, which provides axles and suspension systems for
trailers, buses, and trucks in addition to fifth wheels, kingpins, and
landing gear. In fiscal year 2014, the AerWay product line generated sales
in the mid single-digit millions making only a minor contribution to Group
sales of EUR 959.7 million. The product line had 38 employees working at
SAF HOLLAND's Canadian subsidiary, SAF-HOLLAND Canada Limited, in Norwich,
Canada, and operated within the Trailer Systems business unit.

Both parties agreed not to disclose details of the purchase price said to
be in the low single-digit million EUR amount, and there were no objections
raised by antitrust authorities. The transaction was closed on December 11,
2015.
