The Supervisory Board is very pleased to announce that - upon recommendation by the Audit Committee - it has nominated Mazars as the Company's external auditor for the 2019 financial year. As part of its selection process, the Audit Committee interviewed representatives of several Dutch audit firms that are allowed to perform statutory audits of the annual accounts of Dutch companies whose securities are admitted to trading on a regulated market. Upon their appointment, Mazars Netherlands will be the external auditor of the Steinhoff Group. The Dutch Mazars audit team will work closely with their colleagues in the UK, South Africa and France and in other jurisdictions where possible.

The Management Board and the Supervisory Board are not only very pleased with the nomination but are also grateful to Mazars that they are willing to accept the engagement as our auditor under our present circumstances. Mazars nomination will be proposed for appointment by the General Meeting at an extraordinary general meeting.
