In the run-up to the transfer of supervisory duties for the EU's 130 largest
banks, the European Central Bank (ECB) has subjected these institutions to a
series of extensive tests, known as the comprehensive assessment or CA. The
Austrian Association of Volksbanks is one of six Austrian banking groups
undergoing this assessment.

The aggregate capital shortfall calculated by the ECB for the Association of
Volksbanks amounts to euro 864,72 million. This is in line with previous
announcements by VBAG that the Association of Volksbanks may require further
capital in the future.

The stress test did not take into account the wind-down measures actually taken
in 2014 or the planned restructuring of the Association of Volksbanks, as these
came after the test's cut-off date of 31 December 2013. Under the restructuring
plan, VBAG will be split up and the Volksbank sector strengthened by mergers to
create nine regional banks and three specialist institutions. This plan remains
subject to approval by the authorities and VBAG's executive bodies. There is
currently no prospect of dividend payments on VBAG's profit-related instruments
(participation capital, hybrid capital, supplementary capital).
