Any such request to add another item to the agenda must be accompanied by a draft resolution together with a statement of reasons. In addition, such shareholder request shall only be considered if it is received by the Company no later than the 21st day before the General Meeting, thus no later than 22 March 2016. Furthermore, shareholders whose aggregate shareholding equals 1% or more of the Company's share capital may propose draft resolutions in text form (Section 13 para. 2 of the Austrian Stock Corporation Act) in respect of each item on the agenda for the next General Meeting, and may request that these proposals together with the names of the shareholders, the accompanying statement of reasons for such proposal and the comments by the Management Board or the Supervisory Board, if any, be made available on the Company's website.

Possibility to appoint a proxy pursuant to Sections 113 et seq. of the Austrian Stock Corporation Act: Each shareholder entitled to attend the General Meeting is entitled to appoint a natural person or legal entity as a proxy who shall attend the General Meeting in the shareholder's name and shall have the same rights as the shareholder he/ she is representing.

The Company itself or a member of the Supervisory Board or Management Board may exercise voting rights as a proxy only insofar as the shareholder has issued express instructions relating to the exercise of voting rights with respect to individual agenda items. If a shareholder has granted power of attorney to the credit institution managing the shareholder's securities account (Section 10a of the Austrian Stock Corporation Act), it will suffice if such institution, in addition to issuing a share deposit confirmation, declares that it has been granted power of attorney. The power of attorney can be granted using the proxy form made available on the website of the Company www.amag.at under "Annual General Meeting 2016", which also permits granting limited power of attorney. The power of attorney must be received by the Company no later than 11 April 2016 at 3:00 p.m., exclusively at one of the above-mentioned addresses and will be stored by the Company. On the day of the General Meeting the power of attorney can be delivered in person when registering for the General Meeting at the designated meeting place. The aforementioned requirements for granting power of attorney shall, by analogy, apply to the revocation of such power. Proxy voting: A special service is available for shareholders. A representative of the Austrian shareholder association IVA, Feldmühlgasse 22, A-1130 Vienna, will serve as an independent proxy bound to comply with instructions from the shareholder in exercising the shareholder's voting rights at the General Meeting; for this purpose a special proxy form is available for downloading on the website of the Company at www.amag.at under "Annual General Meeting 2016".
