ERDÖL-LAGERGESELLSCHAFT M.B.H. ANNOUNCES ITS TENDER OFFER FOR ITS EUR 500,000,000 2.750 % FIXED RATE NOTES DUE 2028

On the terms and subject to the conditions set out in an Invitation Memorandum dated 10 January 2018 (the "Invitation Memorandum"), Erdöl-Lagergesellschaft m.b.H. (the "Issuer") invites the Holders of its EUR 500,000,000 2.75% Notes due 2028 (ISIN: XS0905658349) (the "Notes") (in each case subject to invitation and distribution restrictions set out below) to tender to the Issuer for purchase for cash outstanding Notes at the Purchase Price (as such term is defined in the Invitation Memorandum) (the "Invitation"). The Issuer intends to accept validly tendered Notes up to an aggregate principal amount of EUR 100,000,000 (the "Maximum Acceptance Amount").

A summary of the terms relevant to the Invitation appears below:

Description of Principal Amount Maximum Purchase Price the Notes ISIN Outstanding Acceptance per Note* Amount 2.75% Notes due EUR 100,000,000 116.25 per cent. 2028 XS0905658349 EUR 500,000,000 aggregate of the principal principal amount amount

* excluding accrued interest in respect of the Notes

Rationale

The Issuer intends to terminate the listing of the Notes in the Second Regulated Market (Geregelter Freiverkehr) of the Vienna Stock Exchange and the Official List of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and to apply for the inclusion of the Notes in trading on: (i) the Third Market (Dritter Markt) of the Vienna Stock Exchange which is not a regulated market but a multilateral trading facility (MTF) operated by the Vienna Stock Exchange; and (ii) Euro MTF Market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange which is not a regulated market but a multilateral trading facility (MTF), operated and regulated by the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (the "Re-listing"). The Issuer is contemplating the purchase of the Notes to give Holders the chance to end their investments in the Notes prior to the intended Re-listing of the Notes. Notes acquired by the Issuer pursuant to the Invitation, may at the option of the Issuer, be held, resold or cancelled.

Purchase Price

The amount payable to each Holder in respect of the Notes validly submitted for tender and accepted for purchase by the Issuer will be an amount in cash equal to (i) the Purchase Price for the Notes (expressed as a percentage) multiplied by each EUR 100,000 in principal amount of Notes tendered and delivered by such Holder and accepted by the Issuer for purchase (rounded to the nearest EUR 0.01, with EUR 0.005 being rounded upwards), and (ii) Accrued Interest in respect of such Notes.

Minimum Tender Amounts

The Notes can only be tendered in the Invitation in the minimum denomination of EUR 100,000 and integral multiples of EUR 100,000 thereafter.

Maximum Acceptance Amount

If the Invitation is not amended, extended, re-opened and/or terminated by the Issuer, the Issuer will announce whether it accepts for purchase Notes validly tendered for purchase pursuant to the Invitation and the aggregate principal amount of such Notes (if any) at the Invitation Acceptance Announcement Time.

The Issuer intends to accept validly tendered Notes up to such amount that the aggregate principal amount does not exceed EUR 100,000,000. If the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered to the Issuer would result in an aggregate principal amount exceeding the Maximum Acceptance Amount of EUR 100,000,000 all valid tenders will be cut on a pro rata basis to such extent that the aggregate principal amount does not exceed the Maximum Acceptance Amount.

The Issuer is under no obligation to accept any Notes tendered for purchase pursuant to the
Invitation.

Notes acquired by the Issuer pursuant to the Invitation, may at the option of the Issuer, be held, resold or cancelled.

Summary of Actions to be Taken

The Invitation begins on 10 January 2018 (the "Launch Date") and will expire at 5.00 p.m. (CET) on 17 January 2018 (the "Invitation Deadline"), unless amended, extended, re-opened and/or terminated as provided in this Invitation Memorandum.

The Issuer will only accept tenders of Notes for purchase by cash pursuant to the Invitation that have been given by way of the submission of valid Tender Instructions in accordance with the procedures set out in the section "Procedures for Participating in the Invitation" of the Invitation Memorandum.

To tender Notes on the basis of the Invitation, a Holder or the Intermediary or Direct Participant (as the case may be) through which such Holder holds its Notes, must submit, or arrange to have delivered on its behalf to the Tender Agent, via the relevant Clearing System a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the Tender Agent by the Invitation Deadline in the manner described below.

The Tender Instructions must be delivered and received by Clearstream or Euroclear in accordance with the requirements, procedures, and on or prior to the deadlines, established by it. Holders are responsible for informing themselves of those deadlines and for arranging the due and timely delivery of Tender Instructions to Clearstream or Euroclear.

The relevant deadline set by any intermediary or direct participant (as applicable) through which Holders hold Notes or by Clearstream Banking, société anonyme, Luxembourg ("Clearstream") and/or Euroclear Bank SA/NV ("Euroclear") may be earlier than the Invitation Deadline.

Tenders of Notes pursuant to the Invitation delivered by the Invitation Deadline will be irrevocable from the time they are delivered, except in the limited circumstances described in the Invitation Memorandum

under the heading "Amendment and Termination".
