The results of the Annual General Meeting 2019 of UBS Group AG

Management report and consolidated and standalone financial

Discharge of the members of the Board of Directors and the Group

Shareholders rejected the discharge of the members of the Board of
Directors and the Group Executive Board for the financial year 2018
(41.67% voted for, 41.64% voted against and 16.69% abstained).

Commenting on the result, Axel Weber, Chairman of the Board of
Directors, said to shareholders: “ I interpret your decision as a
reflection of your concern about uncertainty surrounding the ongoing
court case in France and that you want to keep all possible legal
options open. I can understand that. So allow me again to make the
personal remark from the point of view of the bank’s present-day
management that it had no responsibility in relation to this case at the
time. We can therefore only judge the past on the basis of the available
documentary evidence. In our view, the trial in France did not show in
any way that UBS failed to comply with the regulations that applied at
the time in France and Switzerland. As I already stated in my speech, it
was not possible to reach an acceptable out-of-court settlement in the
France case. That’s why we decided to defend the bank in court. We
believe this was in the best interests of shareholders. Allow me also to
add in this context that, in terms of building reserves, the strictest
legal and regulatory requirements have been met by the Board of
Directors and the Group Executive Board. We will not waver from the
chosen path. And, at the same time, we will continue our dialogue with
you as our shareholders.”
