10. Additional Information:

1. Direct subsidiaries of Raiffeisen-Landesbanken resigned from the circle of reciprocal attribution pursuant to sections 132, 133 item 7 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act 2018 as parties acting in concert (section 1 item 6 Austrian Takeover Act) based on the existing shareholders agreement regarding Raiffeisen Bank International AG (No. 22) ("RBI") between the companies listed above under section 8, No. 2, 5, 7, 12, 15, 18, 19 and 21 (Raiffeisen-Landesbanken) and No. 3, 4, 8, 9, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 20 (direct and indirect subsidiaries of Raiffeisen-Landesbanken) that each directly or indirectly hold shares in RBI ("RBI-Syndicate") due to disposals of shares in RBI to other companies of the circle of reciprocal attribution effective with 27.07.2018. This was established in the course of a simplification of the shareholding structure of the Raiffeisen-Landesbanken with respect to RBI.

2. The voting rights arising from in sum 193,143,303 shares in UNIQA Insurance Group AG ("UNIQA") corresponding to a relevant interest of 62.51% attributable to RBI according to the UNQA-Syndicate (section 10.4) are also attributable to those companies pursuant to sections 132, 133 item 7 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act 2018 as parties acting in concert (section 1 item 6 Austrian Takeover Act).
This attribution ceased for
- RLB Tirol Holding Verwaltungs GmbH;
- RLB Burgenland Sektorbeteiligungs GmbH;
- KONKRETA Beteiligungsverwaltungs GmbH
effective with 27.07.2018. Thus these companies fell below the reporting thresholds of 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5 and 4%.

3. Unaffected from the withdrawal of the companies mentioned above under section 10.1. from the circle of reciprocal attribution arising from the RBI-Syndicate, the voting rights arising from a total of 193,143,303 shares in UNIQA, corresponding to a relevant interest of 62.51% attributable to RBI pursuant to the UNQA-Syndicate (see section 10.4) are attributable to those companies listed above under section 8, No. 2, 5, 7, 12, 15, 18, 19 and 21 (Raiffeisen-Landesbanken) and No. 3, 4, 8, 9, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 20 (direct and indirect subsidiaries of Raiffeisen-Landesbanken) pursuant to sections 132, 133 item 7 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act 2018 as parties acting in concert (section 1 item 6 Austrian Takeover Act). The voting rights are also still attributable pursuant to sections 132, 133 item 4 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act 2018 to the companies (No. 1, 6, 10, 11) that hold controlling interests in the relevant Raiffeisen-Landesbank.

4. It is also clarified that the reciprocal attribution of the voting rights arising from a total of 193,143,303 shares in UNIQA, corresponding to 62.51% pursuant to sections 132, 133 item 1 of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act 2018 to UNIQA Versicherungsverein Privatstiftung, Austria Versicherungsverein Beteiligungs-Verwaltungs GmbH, Collegialität Versicherungsverein Privatstiftung, RBI, RZB - BLS Holding GmbH and RZB Versicherungsbeteiligungs GmbH according to the shareholders' agreement ("UNIQA-Syndicate") remains unchanged.
