1. Request of agenda items by shareholders (Section 109 Austrian Stock Corporation Act)

Shareholders who have been holding, individually or cumulatively, five percent of the ordinary share capital of the company for a period of at least three months prior to the filing of the request may demand in writing that items shall be put on the agenda of the shareholders' meeting and shall be published. Each such agenda item has to be accompanied by a motion and a rationale.

The requesting shareholder has to confirm its shareholding. In case of bearer shares held on securities accounts a depository confirmation in accordance with section 10a Austrian Stock Corporation Act shall be sufficient. Such depository confirmation shall be issued by a credit institution with its registered office in a member state of the European Economic Area or in a full member state of the OECD. The depository confirmation shall not be dated more than seven days prior to the date of submission and shall confirm that the shareholder has been holding the shares throughout a period of at least three months prior to the filing of the request. In case of several shareholders who only cumulatively reach the required shareholding of five percent of the ordinary share capital, depository confirmations for all shareholders must refer to the same point in time (date, time).

Regarding further required content of the depository confirmation it is referred to the information for participating in the shareholders' meeting (point D).

It is pointed out that the quota regulation pursuant to section 86 para 7 Austrian Stock Corporation Act applies to new elections of supervisory board members. In the 25th ordinary shareholder meeting no elections are scheduled. If a new election is requested as agenda item by shareholders the quota regulation according to section 87 para 7 Austrian Stock Corporation Act has to be met.

The requesting shareholder has to confirm its shareholding. In case of bearer shares held on securities accounts a depository confirmation in accordance with Section 10a Austrian Stock Corporation Act shall be sufficient. Such depository confirmation shall be issued by a credit institution with its registered office in a member state of the European Economic Area or in a full member state of the OECD. The depository confirmation shall not be dated more than seven days prior to the date of submission. In case of several shareholders who only cumulatively reach the required shareholding of one percent of the ordinary share capital, depository confirmations for all shareholders must refer to the same point in time (date, time).
