or via e-mail to: ir.kapschtraffic@kapsch.net. The request must be submitted in
a text format, e.g. PDF, and attached to the e-mail.

In the case of a nomination of a candidate for election to the Supervisory
Board, instead of a statement of reasons, a statement by the candidate must be
submitted in accordance with Sect. 87 para. 2 AktG. The capacity as shareholder
has to be evidenced by submitting a deposit confirmation pursuant to Sect. 10a
AktG which must have been issued not earlier than seven days prior to its
submission to the Company. The other requirements as to content and form of the
deposit confirmation are included in the information on the entitlement to

Upon request each shareholder is entitled to receive information on the matters
of the Company during the Annual General Meeting, to the extent that such
information is necessary for the proper assessment of an agenda item.

To ensure that the meeting can be conducted in an efficient manner, please send
any questions requiring substantial preparation for them to be answered to Mr.
Hans Lang (address mentioned above) duly in advance of the Annual General

address ir.kapschtraffic@kapsch.net or by telefax at +43 (0)50 811 2809.

At the Annual General Meeting, each shareholder is entitled to propose motions
on any agenda item. However, a shareholder's motion to nominate a candidate for
election to the Supervisory Board requires timely submission of a resolution
proposal in accordance with Sect. 110 AktG: Candidates for election to the
Supervisory Board (agenda item 6) can only be nominated by shareholders whose
aggregated holdings represent at least 1% of the share capital. The Company must
receive such nominations no later than by August 30, 2019, in the manner
described above. Each candidate nomination must be accompanied by a statement
pursuant to Sect. 87 para. 2 AktG by the candidate on his or her professional
qualifications, professional or comparable positions held, and all circumstances
that could give rise to a suspicion of bias. Failing the shareholder's motion to
nominate a candidate for election to the Supervisory Board cannot be considered
in the voting.

The Supervisory Board has less than six members elected by the General Meeting,
therefore the minimum quota according to Sect. 86 para. 7 AktG is not applicable
on Kapsch TrafficCom AG.

REPRESENTATION BY PROXY

Each shareholder who is entitled to participate in the Annual General Meeting,
and has provided evidence on that to the company in accordance with the
regulations in this convocation, has the right to appoint a proxy who
participates in the Annual General Meeting to represent such shareholder. The
proxy holder attends the Annual General Meeting on behalf of the shareholder and
has the same rights as the shareholder he/she represents.

The power of attorney must be granted to a specific person (either an individual
or a legal entity) in text form (Sect. 13 para. 2 AktG); also several persons
may be authorized.

At the latest by September 9, 2019 at 4 p.m. (CEST), the power of attorney must
be received by the Company exclusively at one of the following addresses:

After that, the power of attorney or its revocation has to be presented
personally to the registration desk on the day and at the venue of the Annual

A power of attorney sample and a sample for the revocation of the power of
attorney you can retrieve from the Company's website at www.kapsch.net/ktc/ir or
http://www.kapsch.net/ktc/ir/Shareholders-Meeting.

The above provisions for the granting of proxies apply mutatis mutandis to the
revocation of proxies.

In case a shareholder granted a power of attorney to his/her depositary bank, it
is sufficient if such bank declares that it has power of attorney and provides a
deposit confirmation. For the transmission of this declaration, Sect. 10a para.
3 AktG applies mutatis mutandis.
