UNIQA sets subscription and offer price at EUR 8.00 per share
- Gross proceeds of EUR 757 million successfully raised
- In the aggregate, 94,752,100 shares (including over-allotment shares) placed
with investors
- Free-float will significantly increase up to 35.4% (assuming full exercise of

Vienna, 09 October 2013. The Management Board of UNIQA Insurance Group AG
("UNIQA"), with the approval of the executive committee of UNIQA's Supervisory
Board, has resolved on the subscription and offer price and the aggregate number
of shares (including over-allotment shares) to be placed with investors in the
context of its Re-IPO.

The subscription and offer price was set at EUR 8.00 per share with a total of
94,752,100 shares (including 6,650,000 over-allotment shares) being allocated to
investors resulting in total proceeds of EUR 757 million (incl. over-allotment
shares). In aggregate, 88,102,100 new shares (excluding over-allotment shares)
will be issued, increasing UNIQA's share capital from EUR 214,247,900 by EUR
88,102,100 to EUR 302,350,000. If the Joint Global Coordinators and Bookrunners
fully exercise their greenshoe option and if accordingly up to 6,650,000
additional shares will be newly issued at the final subscription and offer price
in the course of a further capital increase by excluding statutory subscription
rights, UNIQA's share capital will increase from EUR 302,350,000 by EUR
6,650,000 to EUR 309,000,000. 

The EUR 757 million proceeds from the capital increase will be used to
strengthen UNIQA's capitalization and thus allow the continued implementation of
the strategy program UNIQA 2.0 as well as provide strategic flexibility for
future growth. 

With the successful Re-IPO, UNIQA achieved another crucial milestone in its
strategy to open the company to the capital markets. Given that existing
Austrian core shareholders (footnote) did neither sell any shares as part of the
Re-IPO nor exercise their subscription rights, UNIQA's free float will
significantly increase from 6.9 % to 35.4% (assuming full exercise of the
greenshoe option). This is expected to increase the trading liquidity in UNIQA's
shares and improve UNIQA's long-term access to capital markets. Furthermore,
UNIQA aims to be included in the main index of the Vienna Stock Exchange, the
ATX, as soon as possible. 

Total retail demand amounts to 2.9% in terms of the total offering.

UNIQA offered its eligible employees in Austria to subscribe for new shares on a
discount basis. Almost every 6th eligible employee participated with an average
order size of around EUR 5,200, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately EUR
3.6 million. 

Trading in the new shares is expected to start on or about 11 October 2013.
Delivery of the shares is expected to take place as planned on or about 14
October 2013.

Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley and Raiffeisen Centrobank are acting as Joint
Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners for the transaction. Barclays,
Berenberg and UBS are acting as Co-Bookrunners. KBW is acting as advisor to
