voestalpine Annual General Meeting resolves EUR 0.50 dividend

Despite the economic crisis, voestalpine AG closed its 2020/21 business year
with a positive result and can once again significantly increase its dividend in
the current business year. Specifically, a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share was
resolved for the business year 2020/21 at today's 29th Annual General Meeting.
This is an increase of EUR 0.30 over the previous year's dividend of EUR 0.20
per share. The Annual General Meeting, which was again a virtual meeting without
the physical presence of shareholders, approved the proposal of the Management
Board and Supervisory Board. The dividend will be transferred on July 19, 2021
(ex-dividend date: July 15, 2021).

Based on an average voestalpine share price of EUR 24.51 in the business year
2020/21, the dividend yield for this period is 2.0% (previous year: 0.9%).
voestalpine AG has consistently distributed a dividend to its shareholders every
year since going public in 1995, in total EUR 3.2 billion including this year's
dividend payment. The annual dividend yield over the entire listing period is
3.5%.

Authorization of the Management Board to repurchase own shares

The Annual General Meeting authorized the Management Board to repurchase own
shares up to a maximum of 10% of voestalpine AG's share capital. This
essentially renews the authorization to repurchase own shares granted in 2019,
which will in part be used to further expand the employee shareholding scheme
and to cover any convertible bonds. The authorization to repurchase own shares
is valid for a period of 30 months. The voestalpine Management Board was also
authorized to dispose of treasury shares in ways other than on the stock
exchange or via a public offering, and also to redeem own shares and thus to
reduce the share capital.
