Ad hoc: NEXUS AG: Executive Board of NEXUS intends to start buyback program

Villingen-Schwenningen, December 19, 2011: Executive Board of NEXUS AG
(stock symbol NXU) intended to start the decided stock buyback program
according § 71,1 No.8 AktG authorized by the Annual General Meeting of
Shareholders on June 14, 2010.

Executive Board was authorized until May 31, 2015, to buy back own shares
of up to 10 percent of the Company's capital stock. The resolution of the
Executive Board is designed for the purpose of purchasing own shares of the
company one time or several times in line with market conditions and within
the framework of the General Meeting of Shareholders empowerment to do so.
The own shares should serve the company especially for partial financing of
additional acquisitions.

The paid equivalent value per share may not exceed the average price of the
closing rates in XETRA trade (or a comparable follow-up system) at the
Frankfurt/Main Securities Market for the stocks of the company during the
last five stock market days before purchase of the stocks by more than 10%
nor may they be more than 10% below these prices. It is in the interest of
the company to obtain the lowest purchase price possible. Consequently, a
lower minimum amount of 10% of the average price during the last five stock
market days is set as the lower limit for the purchase of the company
stocks. On the other hand, the leeway for purchasing stocks at a purchase
price higher than the stock market price is limited to a markup of up to
10%. Management shall consider and decide as in duty bound within this
