 ParTec AG files patent infringement suit against Microsoft Corporation in
 Texas, USA, with its licensing agent BF exaQC AG

 Munich, June 10, 2024 - ParTec AG (ISIN: DE000A3E5A34 / WKN: A3E5A3) and its
 licensing agent BF exaQC AG today filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the
 US against Microsoft Corporation. The core of the legal dispute is the
 infringement of ParTec patents relating to the dynamic modular system
 architecture (dMSA) that ParTec developed and uses worldwide in the
 construction of powerful leading-edge AI-supercomputers. The lawsuit seeks,
 among other things, an injunction against the use of the patented technology
 as well as license fees and compensation for damages.

Information and Explanation of the Issuer to this announcement:

 Explanatory part:

 ParTec AG and BF exaQC AG hold a total of approximately 150 patents and patent
 applications worldwide. One of the most important patents is ParTec's dMSA
 patent, US Patent 10,142,156. The dynamic Modular System Architecture (dMSA)
 approach is a unique selling point of ParTec AG. It has proven itself in
 particular for the complex requirements of massive computing power in
 artificial intelligence such as AI training and inference and is fundamental
 for the dynamic interaction of CPUs and GPUs and other processors in

 The importance of ParTec AG's patents is demonstrated by their use in
 world-leading, modern European supercomputers such as Leonardo in Bologna,
 JUWELS and JUPITER in Jülich or Meluxina in Luxembourg, all of which were
 built on the basis of dMSA and are internationally regarded as pioneering. In
 addition, ParTec AG is already in negotiations with a well-known American chip
 manufacturer for the licensing of patents, as well as in contact with US
 authorities for use in the world's largest exaFlop Supercomputer under
 construction. In the past ParTec also licensed the patents in a deal worth
 millions in Europe for the construction of modular supercomputers.

 "Microsoft is infringing our intellectual property with its wave of AI
 supercomputers as part of their cloud computing platform Azure. We have
 therefore decided to file a lawsuit in Texas, USA," explains Bernhard
 Frohwitter, CEO of ParTec AG and BF exaQC AG.

 Leading US law firm Susman Godfrey L.L.P. is representing the ParTec and BF
 exaQC in this litigation, led by partner Justin Nelson.
