Vienna - April 29, 2020

The Wienerberger Group successfully concluded the second round of its Employee
Participation Program. Of the 4,400 employees in Austria, Great Britain, the
Netherlands and the Czech Republic eligible to participate in the program, up to
a quarter used the opportunity to invest in Wienerberger. The total volume
invested came to over EUR 2.3 million, the average investment per employee
amounting to more than EUR 3,300.

"The high rate of participation is a clear signal of strength, especially in
times like these, with all of us severely affected by the crisis. It shows that
our employees believe in the future of Wienerberger", says Wienerberger CEO
Heimo Scheuch, commenting on the successful second round of the Employee
Participation Program, and adds, "We are convinced that we have the right
strategy to come out of this crisis stronger. As co-owners, our employees will
benefit in the long term, just like all other shareholders".

Wienerberger is one of the companies in Austria that offer their employees the
opportunity to invest in the company through an employee participation program
managed by a private foundation. In the second round, employees in Great
Britain, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic were able to participate in the
program for the first time. Given its extraordinary success, Wienerberger
intends to roll out the program to additional countries. The next offer period
of the program will start in 2021.
