Deutsche Post - AGM 15 May 2019

General: Supervisory Board member Roland Oetker is the former President and since 2008 the Honorary President of DSW, the local partner of ECGS. This report has been prepared using standard ECGS guidelines.

Item 5: PwC, Düsseldorf, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year. We have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees. However, we note that PwC or its predecessors have audited the Company since the financial year 1995 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of PwC as auditor.
