RIB Software AG decides on share buyback

Stuttgart, 4 December 2012 - The Executive Board of RIB Software AG (ISIN
DE000A0Z2XN6) resolved today to buy back up to 1 million treasury shares
via the stock exchange.

The decision is based on the authorisation granted by the annual general
meeting on 24 May 2012 to acquire treasury shares representing up to 10% of
the capital stock (equivalent to 3,871,542 shares) by 23 May 2017.

The buyback programme will initially be limited in time until 15 April 2013
and to 1 million shares in total. The shares will be bought back
exclusively via the stock exchange. In accordance with the more detailed
provisions of the authorisation granted by the annual general meeting on 24
May 2012, the purchase price per share may not be more than 10% above or
below the share's stock exchange price in Xetra trading to be determined.
The shares may be used for any and all purposes specified in the
authorisation granted by the annual general meeting on 24 May 2012, in
particular in exchange for the acquisition of companies or to service
rights stemming from employee stock option programmes.

The share buyback will be managed by a bank. The company has instructed the
bank to ensure that these measures are carried out in accordance with the
trading conditions set forth in Article 5 (1) and (2) of Commission
Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 of 22 December 2003 implementing Directive
2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council regarding
exemptions for buyback programmes and price stabilisation measures (OJ EU
No. L 336/33 of 23 December 2003), hereinafter referred to as 'EC
Regulation', and the provisions of this share buyback programme. The
company has also instructed the bank to provide it with the information
necessary to ensure that the company can comply with the disclosure
requirements imposed upon it by the EC regulation. The decisions on the
timing and volume of the share buyback will be taken by the bank alone and
these decisions will not be influenced by the company.

The buyback programme may be suspended at any time if required, so far as
is permitted by law. RIB Software AG will post regular updates on the
progress of the share buyback programme online at
