presentation of a deposit certificate.
 
Every shareholder who may attend the Annual General Meeting may appoint an
individual or a legal entity as proxy. The Company itself or a member of the
management board or of the supervisory board may exercise the voting right as
proxy holder only if a shareholder issued express instructions as to how to vote
on the individual items on the agenda. Proxy must be granted to a certain person
in text form. Every shareholder may use the forms the Company provides on its
website (www.uniqagroup.com) at Investor Relations/Annual General Meetings.
Shareholders are not obliged to use these forms.
 
At the request of shareholders, they may appoint Dr. Michael Knap, Vice-
President of Interessenverband für Anleger (IVA), at A-1130 Vienna,
Feldmühlgasse 22, as independent proxy who will exercise their voting rights at
the Annual General Meeting. Special forms for the grant and revocation of
proxies are available on the Company's website (www.uniqagroup.com) at Investor
Relations/Annual General Meeting. Any proxy-related costs are borne by the
Company. All other costs, including but not limited to bank charges for the
deposit certificate or postage, must be borne by the shareholder. Furthermore,
shareholders may directly contact Dr. Michael Knap at +43 664 2138740 or e-mail
at michael.knap@iva.or.at. Even if a proxy is granted to the independent IVA
proxy holder, it must be sent to the Company as described below. The Company
will provide the proxy with copies of the proxies. Any instructions on the
exercise of voting rights must be issued directly to Dr. Michael Knap. Please
note that Dr. Michael Knap does not accept any instructions to speak, to ask
questions, to file motions or to raise objections against resolutions of the
Annual General Meeting.
 
A shareholder's proxy must be sent to and retained by the Company. A proxy must
be received by the Company no later than on 22 May 2015, 4 p.m. (last business
day prior to the Annual General Meeting), in writing by surface mail at A-1029
Vienna, Untere Donaustraße 21, UNIQA Tower, Investor Relations, or by fax at
+43 (0)1 8900 500 95 or e-mail atanmeldung.uniqa@hauptversammlung.at (if sent by
e-mail, the proxy must be attached to the e-mail message in text form (e.g. as
pdf file)), or via SWIFT message type MT598 to GIBAATWGGMS with the reference
ISIN AT0000821103.
 
On the day of the Annual General Meeting, the proxy may be handed over only
personally upon registration for the Annual General Meeting at the venue of the
meeting.
 
Upon request, the proxy form provided on the Company's website will be sent by
surface mail.
 
If a shareholder has granted proxy to his or her custodian bank (Section 10a
AktG), the custodian bank, besides issuing a deposit certificate, need only
state that proxy was granted to it.
 
The above provisions governing the granting of proxies apply by analogy to a
revocation of proxies.
 
The distribution of voting cards for the Annual General Meeting starts at 9 a.m.
on the day of the Annual General Meeting. Shareholders and their proxies are
asked to bring an official photo ID as identification. The Company reserves the
right to verify the identities of the individuals (shareholders and their
proxies) who attend the Annual General Meeting. If their identity cannot be
determined, shareholders and their proxies may be denied admission to and
presence at the Annual General Meeting.
 
Information About Broadcast of Annual General Meeting

broadcast via livestream on the Internet from its commencement until the CEO has

Total number of shares and voting rights on the convocation date (Section 106
(9) AktG and Section 83 (2) No 1 Austrian Stock Exchange Act [BörseG])
 
When the Annual General Meeting is convened, the Company's share capital amounts
to EUR 309,000,000 divided into 309,000,000 no-par share units. Each share unit
grants one vote. The Company holds 819,650 treasury shares on the date of
convening the Annual General Meeting. On the date of convening the Annual
General Meeting, there are therefore 308,180,350 shares entitled to participate
in and to vote at the Annual General Meeting. Different share classes do not
exist.
