Insider information pursuant to Article 17 MAR

Berlin, 18 September 2020. Eckert & Ziegler Strahlen- und Medizintechnik AG (EZAG) plans to run its business with tumor radiation equipment together with TCL Healthcare Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (TCL). The two companies today signed a binding letter of intent under which EZAG will transfer its division with the so-called afterloaders (HDR brachytherapy) to a separate company in which TCL will acquire 51% of the shares. Sales revenues with HDR brachytherapy products amounted to approximately EUR 11 million in fiscal year 2019. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

"TCL is the right partner for the business with tumor radiation equipment", said Dr. Harald Hasselmann, member of the Executive Board of Eckert & Ziegler AG. "TCL shares both our strategy and our values and is therefore the best choice to drive the growth of the HDR business worldwide". With TCL we already run a joint venture for the Chinese market since 2019. This cooperation is now being expanded to strengthen our worldwide commercialization of HDR devices. The production shall remain in Germany.
