Infineon - February 21, 2019

Item 4: We recommend to oppose the discharge of the Supervisory Board due to the insufficient attendance of three Supervisory Board members in financial year 2017/2018 as well as due to our concerns that contrary to local and international best practice, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board also acts as the Chairman of the Audit Committee.

Item 5: KPMG, Munich, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year. While we have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees, we note that KPMG has audited the Company since the financial year 1999 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of KPMG as auditor
