Press Release

Annual General Meeting of Swiss National Insurance Company Ltd

16.5.2011

The Annual General Meeting of Swiss National Insurance Company Ltd was held today in Basel.  In a consultative vote, shareholders were able for the first time to vote on the 2010 compensation report. Hans-Jörg Vetter was newly elected to the Board of Directors, and shareholders approved a further term of office for all Board members who were put forward for re-election. All other proposals made by the Board were accepted as well. The new customer service centres were also presented to the shareholders.

The 229 shareholders who attended represented a total of 5 697 613 registered shares. Including shares represented by proxy, a total of 10 275 886 votes were represented, which corresponds to 74.28% of voting shares and 46.60% of total share capital. The shareholders approved the annual report, annual financial statements and consolidated financial statements for 2010, as well as the distribution of a cash dividend of CHF 1.50 per share with a 4.6% dividend yield.

2010 compensation report approved
The Board of Directors held a consultative vote for the first time on the compensation report, the latter being approved by 95.0% of the shareholders. The 2010 compensation report provides details on corporate governance and explains the principles behind the compensation model in place at Swiss National Insurance Company Ltd. The report also states the compensation received by the members of the Board of Directors and Executive Board as required by the Swiss Code of Obligations. In addition, it details the principles applied in 2010 for overall compensation of all the Group’s employees.

Elections to the Board of Directors
Hans-Jörg Vetter, CEO of Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), was newly elected to the Board of Directors for a term of three years. Existing Board members Balz Hösly and Peter A. Kaemmerer were re-elected for the same period.

Amendments to the Articles of Association in shareholders’ favour
Shareholders approved the Board of Directors’ proposal to reduce the term of office of all Board of Directors members from four to three years.  They also approved the lowering of the number of voting shares entered in the share register required in order to place items on the Annual General Meeting agenda from a par value of CHF 400 000 to CHF 200 000. The Articles of Association have been modified accordingly.

New customer service centres
At the Annual General Meeting, the new customer service centres in Bottmingen, Lausanne and Lugano were presented to the shareholders. The centres were established last year as part of the "Schlagkraft Schweiz" business model. They offer customers a further professional point of contact and enable the sales organisation to boost its customer focus. By undertaking this comprehensive reorganisation in the customer support area, Nationale Suisse has considerably improved its service quality once again.
