Information on the organizational and technical requirements for attending the
Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 23 April 2020 at 10:00 a.m. to be held as a
virtual Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of SCHOELLER-BLECKMANN OILFIELD EQUIPMENT
Aktiengesellschaft to be held on Thursday, 23 April 2020 at 10:00 a.m. was
convened by announcement in the official gazette "Amtsblatt zur Wiener Zeitung"
of 26 March 2020 and by euro adhoc of the same date.

The health of shareholders attending the Annual General Meeting is a top
priority for the Executive Board. For this reason, the Annual General Meeting
scheduled for 23 April 2020 in Ternitz unfortunately cannot be held as an
attendance meeting due to the coronavirus pandemic. To protect shareholders and
other participants, the Executive Board has decided to apply the new legal
provision regulating the holding of an annual general meeting merely online. In
the opinion of the Executive Board, this allows to take account of both the
interests of the Company and the interests of the participants in the best
possible manner.

Annual General Meeting to be held virtually
The Annual General Meeting of SCHOELLER-BLECKMANN OILFIELD EQUIPMENT
Aktiengesellschaft on 23 April 2020 will be held as a "virtual annual general
meeting" as provided for by the statutory regulations under COVID-19-GesG and/or
COVID-19-GesV as amended.

This means that shareholders cannot be physically present at the General Meeting
of SCHOELLER-BLECKMANN OILFIELD EQUIPMENT Aktiengesellschaft on 23 April 2020.

Procedure for the conduct of the virtual Annual General Meeting
As the Annual General Meeting is transmitted on the Internet, all shareholders
who wish to do so will have the opportunity to be acoustically and visually
connected to watch the Annual General Meeting in real time and to listen to the
presentation of the Executive Board and the answers to the questions of the
shareholders.

Even during the Annual General Meeting, shareholders will have the opportunity
to electronically submit in writing their questions and/or their motions to the
Company within a certain time window after the Annual General Meeting has been
opened. Those questions and/or motions will be read out by the Chairman or a
member of the Executive Board at the Annual General Meeting. To do so, please
send a simple e-mail to the e-mail address vorstand@sbo.co.at.

This will give shareholders the opportunity to react to developments at the

or submitting an alternative resolution proposal.

The Chairman of the Annual General Meeting will structure the conduct of the
Annual General Meeting in terms of timing, as would be the case with an
attendance Annual General Meeting, and will in particular announce the point in
time up to which questions or motions can be submitted.

Moreover, shareholders will also have the opportunity to change their

respective proxy also during the Annual General Meeting up to a certain point in

This point in time will also be determined by the Chairman during the Annual
General Meeting.

Please note that it may be necessary to interrupt the virtual Annual General
Meeting for a short time in order to process the instructions of shareholders to
the proxies received during the Annual General Meeting.

Within the framework of the above-mentioned communication channels and
participation options, the Executive Management endeavors to safeguard that
shareholders will be provided with the highest possible quality of decision-
making.
