The company Gorenje Gospodinjski aparati d.d. informed the public on November 17, 2017, that it had received on November 16, 2017, a request by a minority shareholder Home Products Europe B.V. for convocation of shareholders assembly. Yesterday, on November 21, 2017 and today, on November 22, 2017 the company received two further requests, identical in their contents, for convocation of shareholders assembly by shareholders Raiffeisenbank Austria d.d., Magazinska 69, 1000 Zagreb, and Splitska banka d.d., Domovinskog rata 61, 21000 Split, Croatia, represented by the law firm Kontarščak d.o.o. from Maribor. As registered owner of 471,555 Gorenje, d.d., shares, ISIN SI0031104076, the shareholder Raiffeisenbank Austria d.d. with such number of shares does not constitute the shareholding based on which the company management would be obliged by law to convene a shareholders assembly, i.e. one twentieth of total share capital, and neither does the shareholder Splitska banka d.d., as registered owner of 407,831 Gorenje, d.d., shares, ISIN SI0031104076. However, the requests are identical to the request by the shareholder Home Products Europe B.V. and therefore, the company will address all requests together.

Supervisory Board statement on a request for convocation of a Gorenje Shareholders Assembly
Good six months before the expiry of Gorenje Supervisory Board's term of office, shareholder Philip Sluiter requested convocation of an extraordinary general meeting to demand replacement of two Supervisory Board members. This has stirred some allegations in the media and the general public of overly congenial relations between the Supervisory Board and the Management Board. In the spirit of transparency and sound corporate governance, we believe the resulting circumstances require a response by the Supervisory Board.

Gorenje Group with revenue and profits increase, despite a challenging quarter
With challenging conditions in both downstream and upstream markets, as well as the labour market, Gorenje's performance remains stable as the Group generated nearly EUR 944 million of sales revenue in the first nine months of the year, or 4.8 percent more than in the same period last year. Comparable operating profit before depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) was higher by good five percent as it nearly reached EUR 59 million. Net profit at EUR 4.6 million was 12.1% higher than in the equivalent period of the year before. We increased our sales of major domestic appliances, including the premium brands, and small domestic appliances. We also improved our geographical structure of sales and increased our revenue from other businesses. Performance in the third quarter was negatively affected by slower sales that fell short of the budget, especially in the markets of Germany and Great Britain; rising prices of materials and components; labour cost pressures; and decrease of productivity as a result of mass production launch for new generations of products. Considering the typical dynamics within the year, we expect to see the largest share of revenue in the last quarter, which in turn will also affect the overall performance. In view of the said negative circumstances, we find that all key objectives laid down for 2017 are not attainable, despite the many measures introduced to mitigate them.
