OMV sells a further 30 filling stations
30 filling stations sold: continued operation of stations guaranteed by acquirers

Negotiations for disposal of an additional 15 stations currently underway

OMV to evaluate the potential closure of unsold stations

In 2008 OMV sold 60 OMV and Avanti filling stations throughout Austria. Early in 2009, OMV announced its intention to continue with the optimisation of its filling station network as part of a new network evaluation, and to dispose of an additional 70 OMV and Avanti stations across the country. Against the backdrop of an ever increasing competitive marketplace and shrinking margins, such measures have now become necessary throughout the entire petroleum industry. 30 stations have been sold to new acquirers and operators, with negotiations for the disposal of a further 15 stations currently underway with private interested parties. Suitable investors have not been found for the remaining 25 filling stations due to tighter legal and economic conditions in the filling station market. As a result OMV is evaluating the potential closure of the remaining locations.

OMV continues to pursue a growth strategy in the premium segment of the filling station market. The focus is on strengthening and further expanding well located and highly frequented stations. At the beginning of 2009, the company announced the disposal of 70 OMV and Avanti filling stations across the country as part of a new network evaluation aimed at enhancing efficiency and optimising costs.

To date 18 OMV and 12 Avanti stations have been sold to new acquirers and operators:

- In Carinthia, Styria and Upper Austria a total of 13 stations were sold to Annawitt and will operate under the brand A1.
- Nine filling stations in Burgenland and Lower Austria were acquired by the Vienna-based petroleum wholesale company AWI.
- In Tirol and Vorarlberg four stations were taken over by Gutmann.
- In the Federal Province of Salzburg four stations were sold to Leikermoser.

15 additional OMV and Avanti stations will be sold to private interested parties, with negotiations currently underway.

Suitable investors could not be found for the remaining 25 filling stations. Due to tighter regulations, increased competition and shrinking margins in the filling station market, a resolution with interested parties could not be reached. OMV is therefore currently evaluating the possible closure of the remaining locations.
