Board of Directors (Appointments and Changes)

Chief Financial Officer Johannes Schmidt-Schultes informed the company's
Supervisory Board in today's meeting that he will not be available for another
contract renewal after his second term of office at the end of April 2017. After
six years of service as Chief Financial Officer of the Semperit Group he has
decided to seek out new professional challenges, says Schmidt-Schultes. 

The Supervisory Board of Semperit AG Holding regrets this decision. "In the past
years, Mr. Schmidt-Schultes has played a key role in shaping the company's
success," says Veit Sorger, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. "He not only
fundamentally restructured all commercial and administrative functions but also
established modern structures and processes in the financial organisation. Mr.
Schmidt-Schultes was substantially involved in the strategic realignment and
organisational modernisation of Semperit. In addition, he has created the basis
for a sustainable and financially secure growth by comprehensively restructuring
the Group's financing. Mr. Schmidt-Schultes has completely reorganised the
financial reporting and capital market communication of Semperit AG Holding
based on the principles of transparency, clarity and continuity, which earned
him the highest respect and appreciation of investors and analysts," says Veit
Sorger.

The entire Supervisory Board thanks Johannes Schmidt-Schultes for his years of
work and wishes him continued success and personal wellbeing. The succession
process for the function of CFO of the Semperit Group has been initiated.
