Vienna Insurance Group Annual General Meeting 2012: Raise in dividend by 10 percent to EUR 1.10 per share

On 4 May 2012 the 21st Annual General Meeting of Vienna Insurance Group AG Wiener Versicherung Gruppe was held at Stadthalle in Vienna. Due to an increase in the profit (before taxes) by 10.1 percent to about EUR 560 million and a growth in premiums by 3.4 percent to about EUR 9 billion, the best result in Group's history has been achieved. The double-digit profit increase in the core markets Austria, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic has been remarkable.

In view of the excellent result, the Annual General Meeting approved the motion of the Managing Board to raise the dividend by 10 percent and to pay EUR 1.10 per share. The dividend payment date and the ex-dividend date is 14 May 2012.

Ms. Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, who has been a member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank until 2011 and is currently active as emerita consultant for the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO), has been elected into the Supervisory Board. As a renowned financial and economic expert, Ms. Tumpel-Gugerell looks back on a longstanding experience in various executive bodies and has a profound knowledge of European economic policy and financial market stability.

Wolfgang Ruttenstorfer, Chairman
