MUNICH, December 1, 2010 - Rohde & Schwarz has acquired a majority interest in the Romanian company
Topex, a manufacturer of telecommunications equipment for government
authorities and companies. The Topex portfolio includes voice communications
systems for air traffic control (ATC). These systems ideally complement the
Rohde & Schwarz ATC portfolio which mainly comprises radiocommunications
solutions. The products of the Munich-based electronics company are already
deployed in over 200 airports in more than 80 countries. In the future, Topex
will trade under the name Rohde & Schwarz Topex SA.

"We plan to use this partnership to further expand our ATC system
expertise," comments Herbert Rewitzer, Executive Vice President and Head of
the Radiocommunications Systems Division at Rohde & Schwarz. "Topex stands
for cutting-edge technology products in this area, a perfect fit with Rohde &
Schwarz. Both companies fully concentrate on voice over IP as the upcoming
communications technology in air traffic control."

Dan Adamescu, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz Topex continues: "Rohde & Schwarz is
an international company with subsidiaries and representatives in over 70
countries. This partnership gives us access to worldwide markets. Moreover,
numerous successful projects have made Rohde & Schwarz a renowned name in the
ATC market."

Rohde & Schwarz Topex SA will continue to operate independently and will
remain fully dedicated to ensuring the continuous success and profitable
growth of all its partners. The company location in Bucharest with around 140
employees will remain unchanged.
