    REQUESTS TO SPEAK, AUTHORISATION AND INSTRUCTIONS, VOTING

    How can I request to speak?

    If you wish to speak during the Annual General Meeting with regard to one or several agenda items, please report to the request-to-speak desk in the meeting room. Please register requests to speak as soon as possible. Should you have prepared questions in writing, we ask you to submit these at the request-to-speak desk. This will make it easier to give a prompt response. Please note, furthermore, that written questions submitted in advance must also be asked in person during the Annual General Meeting.

    Can I be represented by proxy at the Annual General Meeting and issue authorisation as well as instructions in advance?

    Shareholders can be represented by a proxy during the Annual General Meeting, e.g. a credit institution, a shareholders’ association or any other third party and have their voting right exercised by such proxy.

    It is also possible to give authorisation and instructions to the proxies appointed by Vitesco Technologies Group AG, who will be bound by such instructions. The proxies can exercise the voting right only on those points of the agenda on which you have issued explicit and clear instructions. In the absence of such instructions, the proxies will abstain from voting on the respective voting matter. The proxies are obliged to vote as instructed. The proxies shall be restricted to representing shareholders during voting; they will consequently not accept any mandates on requesting to speak, on entering an objection against resolutions of the Annual General Meeting or on asking questions or submitting motions.

    The form printed on the entrance ticket/ AGM Card can be used to grant authorisation and issue instructions where applicable. The completed form must be received by latest Wednesday, 10 May 2023, by 24:00 hrs (CET) in paper form or email at the following address: Vitesco Technologies Group Aktiengesellschaft, c/o Computershare Operations Center, 80249 München oder unter der E-Mail-Adresse anmeldestelle@computershare.de. Please note the postal delivery times.

    Authorisations and instructions can also be issued and revoked on the website at https://ir.vitesco-technologies.com/websites/vitesco/English/3000/annual-general-meeting.html.

    On the day of the Annual General Meeting, the internet service will be available on the website, subject to its technical availability, until the end of the general debate. You can furthermore grant, amend or revoke power of proxy and instructions to the proxies by completing the authorisation form printed on the entrance ticket and submitting this at the desks provided for this purpose at Annual General Meeting.

    Shareholders with an electronic entrance ticket/AGM Card will additionally receive an authorisation form by email.

    Can I also cast my vote by post?

    Yes. Postal votes can only be cast, changed or revoked electronically via the InvestorPortal at https://ir.vitesco-technologies.com/websites/vitesco/English/3000/annual-general-meeting.html.

    The InvestorPortal is also available for the submission, amendment or revocation of postal votes during the Annual General Meeting until the time specified by the Chairman of the Meeting at the Annual General Meeting.

    7. What is the procedure for the virtual annual general meeting?

    The procedure for the virtual Annual General Meeting is similar to that of a regular Annual General Meeting. It begins with a welcome by the chairman of the meeting and an explanation of the formalities. This is followed by explanations of the items on the agenda. Unfortunately, a general debate is not possible at the virtual Annual General Meeting. Instead, the Executive Board will answer the questions of the shareholders duly submitted by 24:00 hrs. (CEST) on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. The manner in which it answers questions is at its own dutiful discretion.

    Furthermore, the Company grants duly registered shareholders or their authorized representatives, on a voluntary basis, the option to submit a limited number of follow-up questions by electronic communication. Questions in languages other than German will not be considered.

    The chair of the meeting will then announce the vote. Once voting has commenced, postal votes can no longer be cast, changed or revoked, nor can authorizations and instructions to the proxy holders appointed by the Company be issued, changed or revoked, even via the internet service.

    8. How and until when can I ask questions at the virtual annual general meeting?

    Shareholders or their proxies who have duly registered may ask questions by electronic communication. Any questions must be received by the Company no later than 24:00 hrs. (CEST) on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. The Executive Board shall decide at its due, absolute discretion how it will answer the questions. In particular, it may combine questions if this appears reasonable. Questions in languages other than German will not be considered.
    In addition to the above right to ask questions, the Company grants duly registered shareholders or their authorized representatives, on a voluntary basis, the option to ask follow-up questions in the virtual Annual General Meeting on May 5, 2022 by electronic communication in accordance with the following rules:
    Shareholders or their authorized representatives may only ask follow-up questions about answers given at the Annual General Meeting to questions which they themselves have previously submitted in due form via the InvestorPortal by 24:00 hrs. (CEST) on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at the latest. During the Annual General Meeting, the Chair of the meeting shall determine one or more periods for follow-up questions on the answers given up to that point. Follow-up questions may only be submitted electronically via the InvestorPortal in German. Each eligible shareholder or his or her authorized representative may ask a maximum of one question for each question previously submitted in due time via the InvestorPortal. The Executive Board shall decide in its due, absolute discretion about whether and how to answer such questions submitted during the Annual General Meeting. In particular, in the interest of an efficient conduct of the Annual General Meeting, it may further limit the number of follow-up questions to be answered, combine follow-up questions and their answers, and make an appropriate selection from among the submitted follow-up questions for answering in the interest of the other shareholders. The chair of the meeting may reasonably limit the time allowed for answering the follow-up questions as a whole or individual follow-up questions.
