[Courtesy translation into English from German original:]
In the course of an intra-group merger, the B&C Lenzing Holding GmbH was transferred to its sole shareholder, B&C Industrieholding GmbH. Due to this merger the chain of controlling companies with regard to B&C Semperit Holding GmbH and its directly held voting rights in Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding changed.

Furthermore B&C Industrieholding GmbH transferred the directly held 859,199 voting rights (corresponds to about 4.18% of the share capital and voting rights) in Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding to B&C Semperit Holding GmbH.

Therefore B&C Semperit Holding GmbH holds 11,145,917 voting rights (corresponds to about 54.18% of the share capital and voting rights) in Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding. B&C Industrieholding GmbH does not hold voting rights in Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding anymore.

In accordance with Section 92 numeral 4 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act (Börse Gesetz) 11,145,917 voting rights in total (corresponds to about 54.18% of the share capital and voting rights) in Semperit Aktiengesellschaft Holding remain therefore attributable to B&C Privatstiftung via its indirect subsidiary B&C Semperit Holding GmbH.
