Joint Ventures/Cooperation/Collaboration

As already reported, Semperit Group is involved in three arbitrations against
its Thai joint venture partner, Sri Trang-Agro Industry Public Co Ltd. Group and
the joint venture company Siam Sempermed Corporation Ltd. (SSC), respectively.

A final award was rendered in favour of Semperit in the arbitration proceeding
against the joint venture partners concerning the possibility to pass board
resolutions with a reduced quorum. The arbitral tribunal decided that the Sri
Trang Group nominated directors of SSC cannot and may not block SSC's
decision-making and also the Casting Vote of the Semperit nominated Chairman, by
not participating in board meetings.

Further, the joint venture partners are ordered to bear the costs of the
arbitration proceedings and of the ICC Court and to reimburse to Semperit an
amount of approximately EUR 2.8 million. In case the joint venture partners do
not comply with this final award, enforcement proceedings may become necessary.
Semperit will, for the time being, not change the current method of
consolidation (at equity) in relation to SSC.
