website www.semperitgroup.com/ir no later than 6 April 2018 as well as in the
same way as the original agenda no later than 11 April 2018.

Such a request shall be considered only if it is received by the Company in

Attn: Legal Department
Modecenterstrasse 22

necessary when making submissions by e-mail

In order to demonstrate status as a shareholder in order to exercise this
shareholder right it is sufficient to present a safe custody receipt in
accordance with Section 10a of the AktG which confirms that the shareholders
making the request have been owners of the shares for at least three months
before so doing and which may be no older than seven days on the date of
submission to the Company. With respect to the other requirements for the safe
custody receipt reference is made to the information on the right to
participate.

Draft resolutions on agenda items (Section 110 of the AktG)
Pursuant to Section 110 of the AktG shareholders whose aggregate shareholdings
equal 1% or more of the Company's share capital may propose draft resolutions in
writing together with a statement of reasons with respect to each item on the
agenda and may request that these proposals and statements of reasons along with
any response by the Management Board or Supervisory Board be made available on
the Company's website together with the names of the relevant shareholders.

If a proposal is made to elect a member of the Supervisory Board, then instead
of a statement of reasons a statement is to be made regarding the person
proposed in accordance with Section 87 (2) of the AktG.

The proposed resolution must (also) be submitted in German.

A safe custody receipt in accordance with Section 10a of the AktG shall suffice
as proof of shareholder status to exercise these shareholder's rights, provided
that the safe custody receipt is not more than seven days old at the time it is
submitted to the Company. With respect to the other requirements for the safe
custody receipt reference is made to the information on the right to
participate.

Such a request shall be considered only if it arrives at the Company in writing

By mail or courier: Semperit AG Holding
Attn: Legal Department
Modecenterstrasse 22
1031 Vienna
By fax: +43 (0)1 / 79777 - 601
By e-mail: stefan.marin@semperitgroup.com, in which case the request must be
attached to the e-mail in writing, for example as a PDF file

Section 119 para 2 of the AktG stipulates that a vote is to be held on a draft
resolution, which has been published on the Company's website in accordance with
Section 110 of the AktG, only if it has been repeated as a motion in the General
Meeting.

Right of information (Section 118 of the AktG)
Section 118 of the AktG stipulates that every shareholder attending the Annual
General Meeting is entitled upon request to be provided with information
concerning the Company's affairs, to the extent that this information is
required to enable the shareholder to properly evaluate an item on the agenda.
The duty to provide information also includes the legal and business relations
of the Company to an affiliated business.

If the consolidated annual accounts and the group report are presented during
the Annual General Meeting of a parent company (Section 189a rec. 6 of the
Austrian Company Code (UGB)), then the information duty also extends to the
circumstances of the group as well as businesses included in the consolidated
annual financial statements.

The information does not have to be provided if such information could, based on
sound business judgement, be used to significantly prejudice the position of the
Company or an affiliated business, or if providing said information would
constitute a criminal offence. Information also does not have to be provided if
it was continuously available on the website of the Company in the form of
questions and answers at least seven days before the start of the Annual General
Meeting. The reason for any refusal to provide the information must be stated.

Motions during the Annual General Meeting (Section 119 of the AktG)
Pursuant to Section 119 of the AktG every shareholder, the Management Board and
the Supervisory Board are entitled to submit motions on any agenda item during
the Annual General Meeting. A resolution may not be adopted regarding a topic of
discussion that was not properly announced as an agenda item.

Pursuant to 87 para 6 of the AktG Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding as listed
company must announce on its websites the proposed candidates for election to
the Supervisory Board together with statements in accordance with section 87
para 2 of the AktG for each proposed person by no later than five working days
prior to the General Meeting, i.e. on 18 April 2018. Failure to do so means the
person concerned may not be included in the vote. The submission of a
corresponding motion at the General Meeting is therefore not possible.

RECORD DATE AND PARTICIPATION IN THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The right to participate in the General Meeting and to exercise voting rights
and all other shareholder rights in the course of the General Meeting is
determined by the shares owned at the end of the tenth day prior to the date of
the General Meeting, i.e. 15 April 2018, 12 midnight CEST (Record Date of the
General Meeting). Only persons who are shareholders on this Record Date and have
demonstrated this to the Company are entitled to attend the General Meeting.

April 2018, 12 midnight CEST.

safe custody receipt.

PARTICIPATION BY PROXY
Every shareholder entitled to participate in the General Meeting has the right
to appoint a natural or legal person as proxy who will attend the meeting on
behalf of the shareholder and who is vested with the same rights as the
shareholder whom he/she represents. The Company itself or a member of the
Management Board or Supervisory Board may exercise the voting right as a proxy
only if the shareholder has issued explicit instructions on the individual
agenda items.

The proxy must be conferred on a specific person (natural or legal) in writing,
whereby several persons may receive proxies.

The proxy must be received by the Company exclusively at one of the following
addresses:

By mail or courier: Notary Huppmann, Poindl & Partner
Brandstätte 6
1010 Vienna
By fax: +43(0)1 512 28 65-21
By e-mail: semperit2018hv@nhp.at, in which case the proxy must be attached to

Personally: by registering at the Annual General Meeting

If the proxy will not be personally submitted when registering at the General
Meeting, the proxy must arrive at the Company no later than 20 April 2018 at one
of the aforementioned addresses.

Upon request, a proxy form and a form for the revocation of the proxy will be
sent to the shareholder. These forms are also available on the Company's website
at www.semperitgroup.com/ir [http://www.semperitgroup.com/ir].

If a shareholder has appointed the credit institution maintaining his or her
securities account as proxy, the credit institute only needs to submit
notification of its appointment as proxy in addition to the safe custody
receipt. The aforementioned requirements applying to the submission of the safe
custody receipt shall apply analogously to the submission of this notification.

The requirements listed above for the appointment of proxy shall apply
analogously to the revocation of the proxy.

As a special service, shareholders are provided the option of having their
voting rights exercised at the General Meeting in accordance with their
instructions by an independent representative of the Interessenverband für
Anleger (Association for Investors), IVA, Feldmühlgasse 22/4, 1130 Vienna. It is
currently planned that Dr Wilhelm Rasinger from IVA will represent these
shareholders at the General Meeting. In order to grant proxy to Dr Wilhelm
Rasinger a special proxy form is available on the Company's website at
www.semperitgroup.com/ir [http://www.semperitgroup.com/ir]. This special form
must be received by the Company exclusively at one of the aforementioned
addresses (fax, e-mail, mail/courier, in person when registering) for the

directly at tel. +43 1 8763343 - 30, fax +43 1 8763343 - 39 or via e-mail at

The shareholder shall instruct Dr Wilhelm Rasinger how he (or perhaps a
representative authorised by Dr Wilhelm Rasinger) has to exercise the voting
right. Dr Wilhelm Rasinger shall exercise the voting right solely on the basis
of the instructions issued by the shareholder. Without explicit instructions the
proxy is invalid.

Please note that the proxy holder does not accept instructions for requests to
speak, for filing notices of opposition against shareholder resolutions or for
raising questions or motions.
