Notification according to Article 27a, Section 1 of the WpHG

Porsche Wolfgang 1. Beteiligungsverwaltungs GmbH, Stuttgart, Germany, (the
'notifying party') notified AUDI AG, Ingolstadt, Germany, on December 4,
2013 with reference to their notification of changes in voting rights in
accordance with Article 21, Section 1 of the WpHG from the same day and the
exceeding of the voting rights threshold of 75%, in accordance with Article
27a, Section 1, Sentence 1 of the WpHG of the following:

'The exceeding of the voting rights threshold is due to the initial
attribution of voting rights (Article 22, Section 1, No. 1 of the WpHG)
held by a subsidiary of the notifying party and not because of a purchase
of shares.


1. Aims underlying the acquisition of the voting rights (Article 27a,
Section 1, Sentence 3 of the WpHG)

a) The transaction underlying the attribution of the voting rights does not
serve to generate a trading profit for the notifying party, nor is it
designed to implement strategic objectives.

b) The notifying party does not plan to acquire further voting rights
within the next twelve months by means of a purchase or by any other means.

c) The notifying party does not currently intend to exert an influence on
the appointment or removal of members of the issuer's administrative,
managing and supervisory bodies.

d)  The notifying party does not intend to bring about a material change in
the issuer's capital structure, in particular as regards the ratio between
equity financing and debt financing, and the dividend policy.

2. Source of the funds used (Article 27a, Section 1, Sentence 4 of the
WpHG)

The voting rights were acquired solely by way of the attribution of voting
rights (Article 22, Section 1, No. 1 of the WpHG). No equity funds or debt
funds were used to finance the acquisition of the voting rights.'
