Best 1st quarter in the corporate history

In the 1st quarter of 2013 Vienna Insurance Group earned consolidated premiums
written of EUR 2.7 billion. This 1.5-percent decrease is mainly due to the fact
that the short-term single premium business in Poland has been downsized
according to plan. Excluding special effects and adjusted for currency
fluctuations, Vienna Insurance Group achieved a growth of about 1.4 percent.

Premiums in the property/casualty insurance segment amounted EUR 1.5 billion.
The Group reported premiums of EUR 1.1 billion in life insurance with regular
premiums growing by 2.7 percent. Premiums in the health insurance segment went
up by 2.9 percent, totalling EUR 100.7 million.

The Group profit (before taxes) increased by 5.2 percent to EUR 159.4 million.
The share of the CEE countries in the Group profit (before taxes) rose by 15.6
percent to a total of 51.5 percent.

The combined ratio of the Group (after reinsurance and excluding investment
gains) stood at 96.9 percent.

of 2013. As of 31 March 2013 the investments of the Group - including cash and
cash equivalents - amounted to EUR 29.6 billion.
