UNIQA resolves sale of indirect interest in Medial Beteiligungs-GmbH to
Novomatic AG
UNIQA Insurance Group AG (UNIQA Group) is to sell its approximately 29% interest
in Medial Beteiligungs-GmbH (Medial), which in turn has an approximately 38%
stake in Casinos Austria AG, to Novomatic AG. UNIQA's interest in Medial thus
equates to an 11.4% interest in Casinos Austria AG.

On 28 July 2015, the Management Board of UNIQA Group resolved to accept an offer
from Novomatic AG to acquire UNIQA Group's entire stake in Medial, subject to
the approval of the Supervisory Board. The sale is subject to the approvals
required under legislation governing business combinations and under company
law. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

As part of its UNIQA 2.0 strategy programme introduced in 2011, UNIQA Group is
concentrating on its core insurance business in the core markets of Austria and
Central and Eastern Europe. In connection with this, since 2011 UNIQA Group has
already sold its equity interests in the German Mannheimer Group and in Medicur-
Holding Gesellschaft m.b.H., in which various media investments were bundled,
and its hotel investments. Meanwhile, UNIQA Group has strengthened its core
insurance business since 2011, including by increasing its indirect interest in
four private clinics in Austria to 100%, by acquiring minority interests in
foreign Group companies and by purchasing two insurance companies in Croatia and
Serbia from Baloise (Switzerland) in 2014.
