- - Against the backdrop of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the associated
increased insecurities on capital markets and on the operative business
development, VIG Group expects dampening effects on its full year results 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic did not yet substantially burden the results of the first
quarter. In contrast, the first three months of 2020 indicate a positive premium
and stable results development compared to the same period in the previous year.
Given the substantial uncertainties on the operative insurance business as well
as on capital markets, the expected impacts of the COVID-19 crisis for the full
year cannot be assessed at the moment. In particular, new business is assumed to
decline. At the same time, negative impacts from impairments, especially on the
financial result in subsequent quarters, cannot be excluded. Accordingly, VIG
Group closely monitors the economic environment and capital markets in order to
be able to assess effects on its assets in a timely manner.

The solvency ratio of the Group as of 31 March 2020 based on first estimates and
considering the substantial volatilities in interests and spreads is on a solid
level at the lower end of the defined comfort zone of 170% to 230%.

The Annual General Meeting scheduled for 15 May 2020 has been postponed.

According to preliminary planning, the results for the first quarter will be
published on 20 May 2020.
