3 Outlook: Stable Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' outlook on core group members of Germany's cooperative banking sector ("genossenschaftliche FinanzGruppe"), including its main central bank DZ BANK AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank (DZ BANK), is stable. This reflects that the ratings on the sector are unlikely to change over the next one to two years and our opinion that the solidarity support within the sector will also remain unchanged. Although we currently anticipate a weakening of economic and financial market conditions globally, we believe that the sector's key credit metrics should stay more resilient than, and superior to, the average for the German banking industry. We consider positive or negative rating actions unlikely at present because they would require more fundamental changes to the sector's strengths or weaknesses or to economic and industry risk in Germany. A heightening of economic risk in Germany, gradual erosion of the sector's market position, a deterioration of the sector's aggregate risk-adjusted capital (RAC) ratio to lower than 10%, or a strategic shift of the sector into higher-risk areas could have negative rating implications. Conversely, the successful execution of a holistic strategy to address the sector's traditional weaknesses, such as cost efficiency and a below-average market position in corporate and private banking, could have positive rating implications. Rationale The starting point for our ratings on core group members of Germany's cooperative banking sector is the 'a-' anchor, which is based on our view of the banking system in Germany. We believe Germany's cooperative banking sector has a "strong" business position, as defined in our criteria, reflecting the sector's leading retail position in German markets. We assess the sector's aggregate capital and earnings as "strong" because we anticipate that good earnings will continue to improve the sector's RAC ratio to higher than 12% by The sector's aggregate risk position is a neutral factor for the ratings because the sector's high-quality, granular loan portfolios in German markets balance the higher risk of managing larger members' exposures. The cooperative banking sector's "above-average" funding position and "strong" liquidity stem from the sizable surplus liquidity and strong retail deposit franchise of the majority of German cooperative banks. We assess the group credit profile (GCP) at 'aa-' because we regard the sector as a cohesive economic group and expect to see solidarity support among member banks in a crisis. We do not factor in additional uplift for potential extraordinary government support. This reflects our view that, in practice, group members would initially offer maximum support to each other if needed. Anchor: 'a-' reflecting Germany's diverse and resilient economy Under our bank criteria, we use our Banking Industry Country Risk Assessment's economic risk and industry risk scores to determine a bank's anchor, the starting point in assigning an issuer credit rating. Our anchor for a commercial bank operating only in Germany is 'a-', based on an economic risk score of '1' and an industry risk score of '3'. Our economic risk assessment reflects Germany's highly diversified and competitive economy and lack of major NOVEMBER 28,

4 economic imbalances. An export-led nation, Germany remains vulnerable to swings in global economies, trade flows, and capital market trends, however. Industry risk benefits from Germany's extensive funding market and banks' domestic funding surpluses from low domestic credit growth and high savings rates. However, the banking sector's competitive dynamics result in relatively low profitability, which is fueled by significant disparities in banks' commercial targets and the business and risk profiles of market players. To assess the economic risk for Germany's cooperative banking sector, we use member banks' consolidated weighted-average lending to private-sector nonbanks in each country in which they operate. Germany's cooperative banking sector conducts about 90% of its business in Germany. Consequently, the weighted economic risk score is the same as that for German lending institutions.

This is because we view the sector as somewhat less vulnerable than the average industry risk score of '3' for Germany indicates. The sector comprises about 1,100 local cooperative banks that service more than 30 million domestic customers, and had total assets of more than 1 trillion as of midyear Its business is predominantly focused on the domestic market, with select niche activities abroad through its central banks and specialized product providers. Germany's cooperative banks have impressive market shares in traditional retail banking, which provide, in our view, superior business stability. They are legally independent and cater to retail and small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) in their restricted regions and business areas. Their combined market shares in traditional banking products are generally 10%-30%. Higher-margin services, however, suffer from generally below-average market penetration for larger, affluent SME customers and individuals in bigger cities. The cooperative banks also have strong market positions in nonbank financial services through specialized sector entities. DZ BANK, the sector's main central bank, consolidates the specialized product providers, allowing the sector to offer a complete range of financial services, such as insurance, building-savings contracts, commercial real estate finance, private banking, mutual funds, and leasing. However, in our view, due to its decentralized structure, the cooperative banking sector's strategic leadership and execution is more difficult than that of some mutual banking NOVEMBER 28,

5 groups. We believe this delays or constrains the sector's financial performance and its ability to respond to challenges (such as intense margin pressure and banks' high cost bases) or to strengthen its position in domestic corporate banking. Nevertheless, domestic corporate banking remains a key priority for the sector, in particular for DZ BANK as the sector's central bank, and it represents a relatively lucrative segment.

Capital and earnings: Good earnings to further increase strong capitalization We assess the sector's capital and earnings as "strong," reflecting our expectation that the aggregate RAC ratio (before diversification adjustments) will continue to improve and exceed 12.0% by 2015 after 11.6% at year-end We base this on the cooperative banks' good-quality earnings, moderate growth potential, and ownership structures that support high earnings retention into capital. We also consider the sector's beneficial capital position vis-à-vis the banks' diverse domestic retail business risk profiles. The quality of capital remains strong, in our view. The cooperative banks hold only a marginal amount of hybrid capital instruments. Distributing capital resources across the sector to support growth remains a challenge. For example, although the cooperative banks enjoy particularly strong capitalization, the RAC ratio for DZ BANK following the 1,477 million rights issue it completed in July 2014 is in the range of 7%-8%, which we consider indicates an adequate capital position.

Sources: Company data as of Dec. 31, 2013, Standard & Poor's. Risk position: Dominance in granular loan portfolios in German markets backed by a robust economy Overall, we consider the sector's risk position to be "adequate." In our opinion, German cooperative banks will continue to benefit from their highly granular portfolios of retail and SME clients, moderate growth potential, and a favorable economic environment. Moreover, the cooperative banks' high proportion of granular, collateralized domestic residential-mortgage loans, and the absence of house-price inflation in Germany have reduced potential credit losses after the harsh 2009 recession. Furthermore, we currently don't foresee overheating in the German housing market over the next two years. We therefore expect the banks' future credit losses to remain measured. The German housing market is still undervalued by about 18%, based on housing affordability, as measured by the price-to-income ratio. German cooperative banks operate only in their own regions and are constrained by individual regulatory limits on single loans. Consequently, the nationwide single-name concentration risk for the sector as a whole is negligible. Nevertheless, the banks' decentralization, in our view, means that the group lacks a harmonized risk management NOVEMBER 28,

8 system and also increases the complexity of managing larger members' exposures. On the positive side, we see that DZ BANK has made substantial progress in reducing risk from its international operations and former structured credit investments, and that it has demonstrated prudent underwriting over the past years. We believe DZ BANK's portfolio will continue to reflect larger, less-diverse exposures than Germany's mainstream cooperative banks, owing to the wholesale nature of DZ BANK's corporate banking activities. Moreover, we believe the sector has made structural improvements in risk management and risk monitoring over the past few years, following a peak in loan loss provisions in 2002 and Table 5 Cooperative Banking Sector Germany Risk Position --Year-ended Dec (%) Growth in customer loans Total diversification adjustment / S&P RWA before diversification (16.7) (17.0) (17.4) (14.2) N.M. Total managed assets/adjusted common equity (x) New loan loss provisions/average customer loans Net charge-offs/average customer loans N.M.--Not meaningful. Funding and liquidity: Sizable surplus liquidity, benefitting from dominance in retail business We expect the cooperative banking sector to maintain its "above-average" funding position and "strong" liquidity. We base this assessment on the sizable surplus liquidity of the majority of local cooperative banks. These banks' funding stems chiefly from retail deposits, and they typically display loan-to-deposit ratios of about 70%. The sector's strong franchise and broad branch network support its stability in customer deposits, enabling it to increase aggregate customer deposits to almost 700 billion as of year-end 2013, despite fierce competition. The cooperative banks channel excess funding mainly to the sector's two central clearing institutions, DZ BANK and WGZ BANK AG Westdeutsche Genossenschafts-Zentralbank, thereby increasing the clearing banks' liquidity. Roughly 80% on average of the cooperative banks' interbank deposits are held at these two central institutions. DZ BANK and WGZ BANK reinvest the funds in higher-margin businesses. The cooperative banking sector's aggregate loan-to-deposit ratio fluctuates around 92%, reflecting in particular the size of the central institutions' wholesale operations. Still, the sector's wholesale funding represented only 22% of total funding at year-end 2013, down from 29% in The sector's aggregate stable funding ratio of about 115% rests on the cooperative banks' dominance in retail business. These ratios somewhat understate the sector's strength, in our view. In addition, the sector benefits from DZ BANK's diverse funding sources, due to its strong ability to access wholesale funding, in particular, through issuing covered bonds (called DZ Briefe). DZ BANK even maintained a high level of covered bond (Pfandbrief) issuance and good access to refinancing in Germany's Pfandbrief market during market turbulence in recent years. This is also because DZ BANK is entitled to include claims against the sector's members in its cover pool for these bonds. NOVEMBER 28,

9 Within the DZ BANK group, funding sources are also well diversified, although these entities are more reliant on wholesale funding than the cooperative banks. The sector's three real estate banks are also permitted to issue Pfandbriefe. So far, the cooperative banks have made limited use of their large pools of residential loans as collateral for funding, but we believe they will increasingly do so in the future. We continue to view as positive the prudent liquidity management within the sector. The cooperative banks' aggregate ratio of broad liquid assets to short-term wholesale funding is a high 3.5x as of year-end We believe the sector has additional strong flexibility from holding large portfolios of unencumbered high-quality securities eligible for refinancing by the European Central Bank.

External support: No uplift to the 'aa-' group credit profile Our long-term rating on Germany's cooperative banking sector is equal to our assessment of the GCP. This reflects our view of the sector's aggregate creditworthiness and expected solidarity support in an emerging stress scenario. We view the sector as a cohesive economic group of legally independent institutions. This view is based on the sector's integration and system of solidarity, including its protection scheme, which is underpinned by an exceptionally strong track record of more than 75 years of support for member banks. The protection scheme is administered by the National Association of German Cooperative Banks (Bundesverband der Deutschen Volksbanken und Raiffeisenbanken e.v.; BVR). Legally, however, the scheme does not give creditors or the cooperative banks a claim against the BVR, and only covers customer deposits and bonds issued by cooperative banks and held by customers. Nonetheless, we believe that a bank in trouble would be rescued by other members, even if the funds in the scheme were insufficient. We do not add any uplift to the GCP for potential extraordinary government support because we consider the individual cooperative banks to have "low" systemic importance in Germany's banking industry. In addition, unlike some mutual banking groups, the German cooperative banking sector does not need to comply with all regulatory requirements on a consolidated basis, which hampers transparency on supervision and the fungibility of capital and liquidity within the group. NOVEMBER 28,

10 Positively, however, the cooperative banking sector voluntarily publishes consolidated accounts based on International Financial Reporting Standards. Our criteria state that subsidiaries or member banks that we consider to have "moderate" or "high" systemic importance--like DZ BANK--would receive the higher rating resulting from either our assessment of group support or our assessment of government support.
