resolution must (also) be submitted in German. Requests of this kind will only
be considered when received by the Company no later than on the 7th working day
before the General Meeting, i.e. by 26 April 2019. In case of a proposal for the
election of a Supervisory Board member the statement of the proposed person
pursuant to section 87 sub-section 2 of the Stock Corporations Act replaces the
statement of reasons. Such proposed resolutions will be made available on the
company website www.semperitgroup.com/ir [http://www.semperitgroup.com/ir] under
the menu item "General Meeting 2019" no more than two working days from receipt
and no later than 30 April 2019.

Pursuant to section 119 para 2 of the Stock Corporations Act, a resolution
proposal that has been published on the Company's website pursuant to section
110 of the Stock Corporations Act is only to be voted on if it is repeated in
the General Meeting as a motion.

Pursuant to section 118 of the Stock Corporations Act, shareholders shall be
provided with information on the company's affairs upon request at the General
Meeting to the extent that such information is required for proper assessment of
an item on the agenda. This obligation to provide information shall also extend
to the legal and business relationships of the Company with affiliated
companies, the state of affairs of the group, and the companies included in the
consolidated financial statements.

The Company may deny providing information to the extent that according to sound
business judgment it might cause material damage to the Company or any
affiliated company or if providing such information would constitute a
punishable offense. Providing information may also be denied if such information
has been continuously available on the Company website registered with the
commercial register in the form of question and answer for at least seven days
prior to the beginning of the General Meeting.

Pursuant to Section 119 of the Stock Corporations Act every shareholder, the

insofar as the shareholder has explicitly provided detailed voting instructions
regarding the individual items of the agenda.
The proxy must be granted to a specific person. A proxy in text form shall be
sufficient in any case. If a shareholder has granted power of proxy to the
depositary bank (section 10a of the Stock Corporations Act) it shall be
sufficient if in addition to submitting the deposit certificate the bank makes a
statement that it has been granted power of proxy. It is also possible to grant

submission of the deposit certificate shall apply analogously to the submission
of this notification.

On the day of the General Meeting the proxy may only be submitted upon

representative authorised by Mr. Michael Knap) has to exercise the voting right.
Mr. Michael Knap shall exercise the voting right solely on the basis of the
instructions issued by the shareholder. Without an explicit voting instruction
on a specific agenda item the proxy is invalid with regards to this agenda item.

Please note that the proxy holder does not accept instructions for requests to

Information to shareholders regarding data processing

1. Which personal data of shareholders is processed and for what purposes?

Semperit AG Holding processes personal data of shareholders (in particular those
pursuant to Sec 10a sub-section 2 Stock Corporations Act, i.e. name, address,
date of birth, number of the securities deposit, number of shares of the
shareholder, type of share if applicable, number of the voting card and, if
applicable, name and date of birth of the proxy holder) on the basis of the
applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European General Data
Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the Austrian Data Protection Act ("DSG"), in
order to enable shareholders to exercise their rights at the General Meeting.

In this connection the shareholders' personal data is processed for the
following purposes:

* Organization and holding of General Meetings, including verification of the
  right to attend/power of proxy and determination of the voting ratio
* Participation of shareholders in the General Meeting and exercise of
  shareholder rights
* Preparation of registration, power of proxy and attendance lists
* Preparation of the minutes of the General Meeting
* Fulfillment of compliance obligations, including recording, disclosure and
  reporting obligations.


The processing of the shareholders' personal data is mandatory for the
participation of shareholders and their representatives in the General Meeting
in accordance with the Stock Corporations Act. The legal basis for the
processing therefore is Article 6 sub-section 1 lit c GDPR (compliance with a
legal obligation). For the processing Semperit AG Holding is controller as
defined in Art 4 pt. 7 GDPR.

2. To whom is the shareholders' personal data transferred?

Semperit AG Holding uses external service providers, such as notaries, lawyers,
banks and IT service providers, for the purpose of organizing the General
Meeting. These service providers receive only such personal data from Semperit
AG Holding as is necessary for the performance of the commissioned service, and,
where they are processors as defined in Art 4 pt. 8 GDPR, process the data
solely on instructions of Semperit AG Holding. Where legally required, Semperit
AG Holding has concluded a data protection agreement with these service
providers.

If a shareholder participates in the General Meeting, all present shareholders
or their representatives respectively, the members of the Management Board and
Supervisory Board, the notary and any other person with a legal right to attend
may view the list of participants stipulated by statute (section 117 Stock
Corporations Act) and thereby also have access to the personal data contained
therein (inter alia name, place of residence, shareholding relationship).
Semperit AG Holding also has the statutory obligation to submit the
shareholders' personal data (in particular the list of participants) to the
commercial register at the competent commercial register court (section 120
Stock Corporations Act) as part of the notarial protocol.

In addition, the shareholders' personal data may also be transferred to the
competent authorities or bodies if necessary.

3. How long is the shareholders' personal data stored?

Shareholders' data will be anonymized or deleted as soon as it is no longer
necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed, and no other
legal obligations require further storage. Obligations to provide evidence and
to retain records arise in particular from corporate, stock corporation and
takeover law, from tax and duties law as well as from anti money laundering
regulations. If legal claims are made by shareholders against Semperit AG
Holding or vice versa by Semperit AG Holding against shareholders, the storage
of personal data serves to clarify and enforce claims in individual cases. In
connection with proceedings before civil courts, this can lead to storage of
data for the duration of the statute of limitations plus the duration of the
court proceedings up to its legally binding conclusion.

4. What rights do shareholders have with regard to their personal data?

Every shareholder has a right to access, rectification, restriction, objection
and deletion at any time with regard to the processing of personal data as well
as a right to data portability in accordance with Chapter III GDPR. Shareholders
can assert these rights against Semperit AG Holding free of charge at the
following point of contact: Semperit AG Holding attn. of Rechtsabteilung,
Modecenterstrasse 22, 1031 Vienna E-Mail: data.privacy@semperitgroup.com.

In addition, shareholders have the right to lodge a complaint with the data
protection supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR.

5. Further information

Further information on data protection can be found in the data protection
declaration on the website of Semperit AG Holding www.semperitgroup.com .

Total number of shares and voting rights at the date of convocation (section 106

convocation of the Annual General Meeting, and is divided into 20,573,434 bearer
shares, of which 20,573,434 shares are entitled to vote in the Annual General
Meeting. Each share entitles the holder to one vote. The Company does not own
