very clearly in the key data. The Group premiums grew by 9.2 percent to EUR 7.4
billion.

Group profit (before taxes) developed impressively, rising by 7.0 percent to
EUR 443.2 million. The increase in Group profit after taxes and non-controlling
interests was even more significant: it went up by 9.0 percent to EUR 341.4
million.

The contribution of the CEE markets both to the profit (51.4 percent) and
premiums (54.2 percent) exceeded 50 percent.

The combined ratio of the Group after reinsurance (excluding investment income)
reached a very good level of 96.9 percent despite severe losses caused by storm
damage.

The investments of the Group, including cash and cash equivalents, amounted to
EUR 29.9 billion as of 30 September 2012.

Increasing by 12.7 percent, the financial result totalled EUR 899.9 million.
