AGENDA AND PROPOSED RESOLUTION FOR THE OGM

Decision to:

(i) increase the maximum aggregate nominal amount of the shares of the Company which may be acquired under the Company's buy-back programme, as approved by the ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Company on 6 May 2020 and as approved and increased by the annual general meeting of the shareholders of the Company on 30 June 2021 (the "Buy-back Programme"), from 30% of the aggregate nominal amount of the issued share capital of the Company from time to time by 20% to 50% of the aggregate nominal amount of the issued share capital of the Company from time to time; and

(ii) to approve the amendment of the first paragraph of the Buy-back Programme.

Resolution proposed by the Board of Directors:

"The General Meeting resolves to:

(i) increase the maximum aggregate nominal amount of the shares of the Company which may be acquired under the Company's buy-back programme, as approved by the ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Company on 6 May 2020 and as approved and increased by the annual general meeting of the shareholders of the Company on 30 June 2021 (the "Buy-back Programme"), from 30% of the aggregate nominal amount of the issued share capital of the Company from time to time by 20% to 50% of the aggregate nominal amount of the issued share capital of the Company from time to time; and

(ii) amend the first paragraph of the Buy-back Programme to read as follows:

"The General Meeting grants all powers to the Board of Directors, with option to delegate, to buy-back, either directly or through a subsidiary of the Company, shares of the Company for a period of five (5) years following the date of the present General Meeting. In particular, the General Meeting resolves that the aggregate nominal amount of the shares of the Company which may be acquired may not exceed 50% of the aggregate nominal amount of the issued share capital of the Company from time to time, at the date of exercise of the present authorisation"."

Subject to the approval of this resolution by the shareholders, the Board of Directors will convene at least once a year an extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Company ("EGM") to decide on a reduction of the share capital of the Company, if the Company has acquired under its Buy-back Programme more than 30% of the aggregate nominal amount of its issued share capital from time to time. The reduction amount to be decided on such EGM shall be equal to the total number of shares with a nominal value of one cent (EUR 0.01) each exceeding the 30% threshold, as described above.

QUORUM AND MAJORITY REQUIREMENTS

There is no quorum of presence requirement for the General Meeting. The agenda items are adopted by a simple majority of the votes validly cast by shareholders duly present or represented. Each share is entitled to one vote.

SHARE CAPITAL AND VOTING RIGHTS

At the date of convening of the General Meeting, the Company's subscribed share capital equals EUR 15,370,256.09 and it is divided into 1,537,025,609 shares having a nominal value of EUR 0.01 each, all of which are fully paid up. At the date of convening of the OGM, the voting rights attached to a total number of 431,335,729 shares of the Company are suspended according to Luxembourg law.
