In the first nine months of 2013, the UNIQA Group (UNIQA) increased its profit
on ordinary activities (EBT) by 74.7 per cent to 266.3 million euros (1 - 9/
2012: 152.4 million euros). This figure includes the profit from the sale of
hotel holdings amounting to 51.6 million euros. Consolidated net profit (after
taxes and minority interests) increased by 139.5 per cent to 223.8 million euros
(1 - 9/2012: 93.5 million euros).
 
Premiums written including the savings portion of unit- and index-linked life
insurance increased by 8.2 per cent to 4,447.3 million euros (1 - 9/2012:
4,112.1 million euros). The Group cost ratio after reinsurance fell to 23.1 per
cent (1 - 9/2012: 24.8 per cent). The combined ratio in property and casualty
insurance after reinsurance improved to 98.8 per cent (1 - 9/2012: 101.0 per
cent.  The adjustedreturn on equity (ROE) after taxes and minority interests
amounted to 12.6 per cent (1 - 9/2012: 9.8 per cent).

Based on current assessments, UNIQA Group anticipates a profit from ordinary
activities of around EUR 300 million for 2013 as a whole, not including non-
recurring items such as the sale of the hotel holding. This assumes that there
will be no significant setbacks on the capital markets in the remaining weeks of
the year and that no extraordinary losses will occur as a result of natural
disasters.
