Supervisory Board of STADA Arzneimittel AG Dr. Martin Abend clarifies
supplementary motion for the agenda of 2016 AGM: Replacement of three
Supervisory Board members and abolition of transfer restrictions for
registered Shares

- Clarified wording of proposed resolutions represents good compromise
between strengthening the Supervisory Board with broader and more relevant
expertise and ensuring continuity in the Supervisory Board in the interest
of the company

- Proposal for reclassification of registered shares with restricted
transferability to registered shares remains

- Active Ownership Capital sees strengthened Supervisory Board as a first
major step to developing the company further together with management

Luxembourg/Bad Vilbel, May 13, 2016 - Active Ownership Capital, an
independent, partner-managed investment company, today announced that by
mutual agreement with the chairman of the Supervisory Board of STADA
Arzneimittel AG Dr. Martin Abend it has clarified the wording of the
proposed resolutions in its supplementary motion for the agenda of the
Annual General Meeting of STADA Arzneimittel AG (ISIN DE0007251803) on June
9, 2016.

According to the refined supplementary motion, Active Ownership Capital
proposes the replacement of three of the nine Supervisory Board members.
The candidates to be appointed include two independent nominees and one
representative of Active Ownership Capital, to which more than 5% of the
STADA shares are attributed to. The proposed candidates have confirmed
their willingness to join the Supervisory Board of STADA Arzneimittel AG in
case of their election.

- Klaus-Joachim Krauth (born 1961) - Former CFO of HEXAL and Athos; expert
for the healthcare industry and finance; extensive experience in generics
and branded products

- Klaus Röhrig (born 1977) - Founding Partner Active Ownership Capital;
extensive investment, value creation and corporate governance experience

- Dr. Ulrich Wandschneider (born 1961) - CEO of Asklepios Kliniken until
April 2016; former Director of Healthcare Consulting at Arthur Andersen;
expert on tax law and healthcare Management

Active Ownership Capital continues to propose the reclassification of
registered shares with restricted transferability to registered shares.
Active Ownership Capital considers the limitation of rights of shareholders
by management as outdated and inappropriate.

Active Ownership Capital has issued the following statement in this regard:

"The goal of our clarified resolution proposal is to renew the Supervisory
Board of STADA and strengthen it with internationally renowned experts.
Active Ownership Capital firmly believes that the proposed candidates for
the Supervisory Board are ideally qualified to meet the challenges of STADA
today and in the future. In our view, STADA has a high value creation
potential. A strengthened Supervisory Board is a first major step to
developing the company further together with the management."

Further information, detailed resumes of the proposed candidates and a
presentation on the supplementary motion of Active Ownership Capital are
available on the following website: www.saz-governance.de
