Company Information

Vienna - March 19, 2020. In these challenging times, Wienerberger is committed
to the sustained performance of our business and the health and safety of all
our employees, customers, partners and all other stakeholders.

To ensure that our objectives are met and to continue to supply all our
customers with our products and solutions to the best of our abilities, we wish
to notify investors of the following proactive measures which we firmly believe
will support Wienerberger's continued success:

  1. Wienerberger's digital solutions are enabling us to support interactions
     with our customers and partners and ensure uninterrupted deliveries of our
     products.
  2. Our strong balance sheet and liquidity position, combined with a cash flow
     performance in line with our business expectations so far in 2020, enable
     Wienerberger to operate from a position of strength.
  3. Our strong local presence enables us to rapidly assess critical decision
     inputs on a real-time basis. Currently, Wienerberger is producing and
     delivering its products in all of its 30 countries in compliance with
     strict safety and hygiene rules. Throughout this period Wienerberger's
     Board and Management will continue to review our cost structures and
     investments to ensure that our strategy is fully aligned with changing
     market conditions.
  4. Wienerberger is paying close attention to the situation in all our markets
     in order to implement the respective government-imposed measures throughout
     the Group. In addition, our Board and Management has established a Business
     Resilience Team who will provide ongoing advice and enable us to react
     quickly and sustainably. Where needed, we will be implementing swift and
     forward-looking adjustments to our production on a market-by-market basis
     as necessary.

At Wienerberger, we are confident that we have the right skills and
infrastructure to cope with this major economic challenge. We remain committed
to taking the right measures and have the flexibility to do so thanks to our
strong financial position. We will continue to work in close cooperation with
all our stakeholders to protect our business, employees and customers.
