Postponement of Annual General Meeting

Reasons are ongoing talks between Hapag-Lloyd and UASC / New date in
August 2016 at the latest

Today, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG (ISIN DE000HLAG475, German securities identification code HLAG47) have decided to cancel the Annual General Meeting scheduled for 1 June 2016 at 10 a.m. (Mehr! Theater am Grossmarkt, Banksstrasse 28, 20097 Hamburg) and postpone it until a later date. The announcement in the German Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) dated 25 April 2016 is therefore no longer valid.

The previously publicised talks between Hapag-Lloyd AG (HL) and United Arab Shipping Company SAG (UASC) regarding a potential combination of their container shipping activities would in the case of a successful finalisation of such talks require potentially amendments to the agenda. Those amendments could not have been reflected in the agenda of the Annual General Meeting on June 1 due to company law specifications and deadlines.

The Annual General Meeting of Hapag-Lloyd AG will take place in August 2016 at the latest. The Executive Board will announce the AGM, including the agenda, in the German Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) in due course.
