the Chairman, EUR 40,000 for the Vice Chairman and the Chairman of the Audit
Committee, and EUR 32,000 for other members of the Board of Directors.

be acquired directly on behalf of the Board members within two weeks from the
release of the interim report for January 1 - March 31, 2015. Furthermore, a
meeting fee for each meeting of the Board and its Committees (excluding
decisions without a meeting) will be paid to the members of the Board of

the repurchase of a maximum of 4,400,000 company's own shares. The shares may
be repurchased to be used for financing or implementing possible mergers and
acquisitions, developing the company's equity structure, improving the
liquidity of the company's shares or to be used for the payment of the annual
fees payable to the members of the Board of Directors or for implementing the
share-based incentive programs of the company. The repurchase authorization
will be valid until the end of the next Annual General Meeting, however, no
longer than until June 30, 2016.

transfer company's own shares held by the company or to issue new shares

against payment or without payment The new shares may be issued and the
company's own shares held by the company may be transferred to the company's
shareholders in proportion to their current shareholdings in the company or
deviating from the shareholders' pre-emptive right through a directed share
issue, if the company has a weighty financial reason to do so, such as
financing or implementing mergers and acquisitions, developing the company's
equity structure, improving the liquidity of the company's shares or to be
used for the payment of the annual fees payable to the members of the Board
of Directors. The authorization will be valid until the end of the next
