or via e-mail to: ir.kapschtraffic@kapsch.net. The request must be submitted in a text format, e.g. PDF, and attached to the e-mail.

In the case of a nomination of a candidate for election to the Supervisory Board, instead of a statement of reasons, a statement by the candidate must be submitted in accordance with Sect. 87 para. 2 AktG. The capacity as shareholder has to be evidenced by submitting a deposit confirmation pursuant to Sect. 10a AktG which must have been issued not earlier than seven days prior to its submission to the Company.

To ensure that the meeting can be conducted in an efficient manner, please send any questions requiring substantial preparation for them to be answered to Mr. Hans Lang (address mentioned above) duly in advance of the Annual General Meeting in writing.

At the Annual General Meeting, each shareholder is entitled to propose motions on any agenda item.

Failing the shareholder's motion to nominate a candidate for election to the Supervisory Board cannot be considered in the voting.

The Supervisory Board has less than six members elected by the General Meeting, therefore the minimum quota according to Sect. 86 para. 7 AktG is not applicable on Kapsch TrafficCom AG.

The proxy holder attends the Annual General Meeting on behalf of the shareholder and has the same rights as the shareholder he/she represents.

The power of attorney must be granted to a specific person (either an individual or a legal entity) in text form (Sect. 13 para. 2 AktG); also several persons may be authorized.

At the latest by September 9, 2019 at 4 p.m. (CEST), the power of attorney must be received by the Company exclusively at one of the following addresses:

http://www.kapsch.net/ktc/ir/Shareholders-Meeting.

The above provisions for the granting of proxies apply mutatis mutandis to the revocation of proxies.

In case a shareholder granted a power of attorney to his/her depositary bank, it is sufficient if such bank declares that it has power of attorney and provides a deposit confirmation. For the transmission of this declaration, Sect. 10a para. 3 AktG applies mutatis mutandis.

As a special service, a representative of the "IVA - Interessenverband für Anleger" (Austrian Shareholder Association), Feldmühlgasse 22, 1130 VIENNA, AUSTRIA is available to shareholders as an independent representative who is bound by the shareholders' instructions for exercising voting rights at the Annual General Meeting; a special form for such power of attorney may be downloaded at the Company's website at www.kapsch.net/ktc/ir or http:// www.kapsch.net/ktc/ir/Shareholders-Meeting.
