in the first quarter of 2014, representing a year-on-year increase of 1.0
percent. When adjusted for exchange rate effects, the increase rises further to
2.9 percent.

Profit (before taxes) was EUR 152 million. Adjusted for exchange rate effects
and the first interest payment on the subordinated debt issued in autumn 2013,
profit (before taxes) rose by 2.8 percent. It is particularly satisfying to note
that all Vienna Insurance Group segments and markets made positive contributions
to profits.

The combined ratio improved strongly to an excellent 96.4 percent. This was half
a percentage point lower than the same period in the previous year. Compared to
the end of 2013, the level improved significantly by 4.2 percentage points.

The Group's financial result remained stable at around EUR 272 million. Vienna
Insurance Group investments (including cash and cash equivalents) were just
under EUR 30 billion (as of 31 March 2014).
