On January 19, 2016 FACC AG announced that it became a victim of fraudulent
activities involving communication- an information technologies. To the current
state of the forensic and criminal investigations, the financial accounting
department of FACC Operations GmbH was the target of cyber fraud. FACC's IT
infrastructure, data security, IP rights as well as the operational business of
the group are not affected by the criminal activities. The damage is an outflow
of approx. EUR 50 mio of liquid funds. The management board has taken immediate
structural measures and is evaluating damages and insurance claims. All
production- and engineering units operate in an unaffected and normal way. An
economic threat to the company concerning liquidity does not exist. The
management board will decide on further actions after the outcome of the
forensic investigations is available. FACC AG will announce its Q3 results
tomorrow, as scheduled.
