At the 21st Annual General Shareholder's Meeting of voestalpine AG today,
Wednesday, July 3, 2013, a dividend of EUR 0.90 per dividend-bearing share was
approved for the business year 2012/13. The shareholders acted on the relevant
recommendation by the Management Board and the Supervisory Board.The dividend
shall be paid out starting on July 15.
 
Furthermore the Annual General Meeting authorized the Management Board to
repurchase voestalpine's own shares representing no more than 10 percent of the
share capital of voestalpine AG. This is a renewal of the authorization to
repurchase the company's own shares that was issued in 2010 to be used
specifically, but not exclusively for the expansion of the employee shareholding
scheme or to service stock option programs or convertible bonds. The
authorization to repurchase voestalpine's own shares is valid for 30 months. In
this context, the Management Board of voestalpine AG was also authorized to
redeem the company's own shares up to a maximum of 10 percent of the share
capital of voestalpine AG, thus reducing the share capital by the same
percentage.
 
Additionally, the Annual General Meeting adopted a resolution to amend the
Articles of Incorporation, mainly in order to adapt them to changes in
legislation, particularly the Austrian Stock Corporation Amendment Act 2011.
