ASML Issues Shares in Connection with Customer Co-Investment Program

VELDHOVEN, the Netherlands, 13 September 2012 - ASML Holding NV today announces that it has issued the shares for two of the three participating customers in its Customer Co-Investment Program, issuing a total of 75,573,452 shares to two Dutch Foundations (Stichtingen) established for this purpose.

ASML issued 62,977,877 shares to the Foundation established for Intel, whose Foundation issued a corresponding number of depositary receipts to Intel. ASML issued 12,595,575 shares to the Foundation established for Samsung whose Foundation issued a corresponding number of depositary receipts to Samsung.

The shares are subject to a shareholders agreement, which, among other things, provides that these shares may not be voted other than in exceptional circumstances. The share issues resulted in aggregate proceeds of EUR 3,016 million. The shares for TSMC, the other participant in the Co-Investment Program, are expected to be issued at the end of October 2012.

The proceeds of the share issues will be returned to existing shareholders (other than participating customers) through a synthetic buy-back.
