In a challenging environment Vienna Insurance Group achieved a premium volume of
more than EUR 9 billion. Premiums in property and casualty (+0.8%), health
(+3.0%) and regular-premium life business (+4.9%) increased. The due to the
current low interest rate environment exercised restraint in the single-premium
business (-15.7%) led to an overall decrease of 1.4% in written premiums of the
Group.

The preliminary profit before taxes for the business year 2015 is around
EUR 172 million. Apart from the decreased current financial income and the
impairment done in the third quarter 2015, additional impairments of intangible
assets impacted this result. They evolved from changes of the cash generating
units in the course of the extension of the management board, from a more
cautious view on developments in Romania and from tax changes in Poland.

The dividend policy of Vienna Insurance Group foresees the distribution of at
least 30% of net profits after minorities. Management decided in today's board
meeting to suggest to the statutory bodies a dividend of EUR 0.60 per share for
the business year 2015. This means a pay-out ratio of around 78%.

For the business year 2016 VIG plans at least to double the pre-tax result 2015
and targets a profit before taxes of up to EUR 400 million.
