WALLDORF, Germany - February 14, 2011 - SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced
that it expects subscription rights to SAP shares to be exercised on
February 15, 2011. The subscription rights that are expected to be
exercised arise under the Company's Long Term Incentive Plan 2000, in which
stock options and convertible bonds bearing subscription rights to SAP
shares were given to executives and employees of SAP Group. As a result, up
to a total of 3.45 million SAP shares will be received and sold into the
market on the same day. SAP will primarily use treasury shares to service
the subscription rights.

The SAP Executive Board has decided to buy back from the open market on the
same day (February 15, 2011) the quantity of shares needed to replenish the
treasury stock that was used to service the subscription rights.

The Company was granted approval to buy back shares at the Annual General
Meeting of Shareholders on June 8, 2010, which authorized the Executive
Board to buy back up to 120 million SAP shares on or before June 30, 2013.
The decision regarding the precise number and timing of any buyback of
shares for treasury is subject to change, depending on market conditions.
