Right to attend and record date (Section 106 (6) and (7) Stock Corporation Act):
The right to attend the Annual General Meeting and to exercise shareholder
rights which have to be asserted at the Annual General Meeting, pursuant to
Section 111 (1) and (2) AktG, depend on the ownership of shares at the end of
the 10th day before the date of the Annual General Meeting (record date), and,
accordingly, on the ownership of shares on 13 April 2014, 12:00 p.m. midnight.
Attendance of the Annual General Meeting is permitted only if a person is a
shareholder on that record date and proves this fact to the Company. Such
evidence (deposit confirmation) must be received by the Company pursuant to
Section 10a AktG, no later than 17 April 2014, exclusively at one of the
addresses below: 

By post: Schoeller-Bleckmann, Oilfield Equipment AG, Hauptstraße 2, 2630
Ternitz, Austria, or

format, etc.)

Via SWIFT: GIBAATWGGMS, Message Type MT 598; reference to ISIN0000946652 must be
included

The deposit confirmation must be issued by the custodian bank which must be
registered in a member state of the European Economic Area or in a full OECD
member state.  Furthermore, it must contain the information set forth in Section
10a (2) AktG and refer to the above record date.  Deposit confirmations are
accepted in the German or English language only.

Representation by proxies (Section 106 (8) AktG):
Each shareholder entitled to attend the Annual General Meeting has the right to
appoint a natural or legal person as proxy (Sections 113, 114 AktG). Such proxy
attends the Annual General Meeting on behalf of the shareholder and has the same
rights as the shareholder he/she represents. The Company itself, a member of the
Executive Board or the Supervisory Board may exercise voting rights as proxy
only to the extent the shareholder has issued an explicit voting instruction on
the individual items on the Agenda. The proxy must be granted to a specific
person. The proxy must be issued in writing pursuant to Section 13 (2) AktG; its
revocation must also be made in writing. The proxy and/or its revocation must be
sent to and retained by the Company. Proxies may be submitted to the Company no
later than on 22 April 2014, 4:00 p.m. by post to 2630 Ternitz, Hauptstraße 2,
by telefax (+43 (0)1 8900 500 65) or by e-mail:

to present their proxies and/or revocations to the registration desk of the
Annual General Meeting at its venue. For the appointment of a proxy and its
revocation, the proxy form made available by the Company for its shareholders on
the Company's website (www.sbo.at) must be used (Section 114 (3) AktG). If
requested, proxy forms can also be sent to shareholders by post.

If a shareholder has granted a proxy to his/her custodian bank, it is sufficient
for the credit institution to declare that it was granted proxy, in addition to
issuing the deposit confirmation. 

Information on shareholder rights (Section 106 (5) AktG):
Shareholders whose individual or aggregate shareholdings equal five percent of
the Company's share capital may, pursuant to Section 109 AktG, request in
writing that items be added to the Agenda of the Annual General Meeting and that
they are announced. Each item that is requested to be added to the Agenda must
be accompanied by a resolution proposal including a statement of the reasons for
this request. Applicants must have held shares for at least three months prior
to submitting the request. The shareholder's request must be received by the
Company by the 21st day prior to the Annual General Meeting, that is no later
than on 2 April 2014, and addressed to 2630 Ternitz, Hauptstraße 2.

Furthermore, shareholders whose individual or aggregate shareholdings equal one
percent of the Company's share capital may, pursuant to Section 110 AktG, submit
to the Company written proposals for resolution on any item of the Agenda and
request that such proposals be made available on the Company's website together
with the names of the respective shareholders, the (mandatory) statement of
reasons, and the statements, if any, of the Executive Board or the Supervisory
Board. If proposals are made on the election of a member to the Supervisory
Board, the statement of reasons is replaced by a statement of the suggested
candidate, pursuant to Section 87 (2) AktG. This request is considered valid if
received by the Company no later than on the seventh working day prior to the
Annual General Meeting, that is no later than on 11 April 2014, addressed to
2630 Ternitz, Hauptstraße 2, or by telefax to +43 (0)2630 315501.

On request, each shareholder is entitled to obtain information about matters
concerning the Company at the Annual General Meeting to the extent that this is
necessary to properly assess the items on the Agenda (Section 118 AktG). 

Shareholder rights linked to ownership of shares during a certain period of time
can be exercised only if the shareholder status in the relevant period is proved
by submitting a deposit confirmation pursuant to Section 10a AktG.  When
presented to the Company, the deposit confirmation may not be older than seven
days.  

Extensive information on the above shareholder rights pursuant to Sections 109,
110, 118 and 119 AktG is available on the Company's website (www.sbo.at).

Total number of shares and voting rights at the time of convocation (Section 106
(9) AktG):
Pursuant to Section 83 (2) (no 1)  Stock Exchange Act (BörseG) and Section 106
(9) AktG we announce that at the date of the convocation to the Annual General
Meeting the share capital of the company is EUR 16,000,000.00, which is divided
