Capital increase to strengthen the capital base

To strengthen its capital base in view of the continuingly high uncertainty surrounding global economic developments and the resulting volatility on the capital markets and to lay the groundwork for further strong organic growth, UNIQA Versicherungen AG executed a capital increase in December 2009 by the amount of roughly 8.6%. By partially utilising the capital approved at the Annual General Meeting, 11,312,217 new, no-par bearer unit shares with voting rights were issued, thereby raising the share capital to €142,985,217. The price per share was set at €13.26, the revenue from the capital increase therefore amounted to roughly €150 million.
