2) By correspondence, using the proxy voting form (the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions) as made available on the Company's website (http://www.imcagro.com.ua). Only voting instructions expressed by the use of the provided Proxy Voting Form and Instructions (duly filled) are considered as valid and recorded.

The Proxy Voting Form and Instructions shall be delivered by the Shareholder to the Company, either (i) by hand-delivery (with acknowledgement of receipt), (ii) by a registered mail, or (iii) by special courier, to the Notice Address.

In any case, the Company shall receive the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions in original, together with a certified true copy of the international valid ID card, passport or other official document in English evidencing the Shareholder's identity, no later than Tuesday 22 October 2013, at 18.00 CET and the original of the Shareholder's Certificate (if not delivered before) or it will not be recorded as valid.

3) By proxy (both in the case of a natural person or a legal person) through the appointment of a natural or legal person (the Proxy Holder) to attend and vote at the EGM in the Authorized Shareholder's name and upon written instructions of the Authorized Shareholder. The Proxy Holder may not be a shareholder.

The Proxy Holder must be designated in writing (the Proxy) and the Proxy must be delivered in original by mail (ordinary or registered) to the Notice Address.

In any case, the Company must receive the Proxy before Tuesday 22 October 2013, at 18.00 CET, or it will not be recorded as a valid Proxy and the Proxy Holder will not be authorized to attend and vote at the EGM on behalf of the Authorized Shareholder.

The Proxy Holder is entitled to act in the Authorized Shareholder's name and exercise the same rights the Authorized Shareholder benefits (please refer to item 3 "Rights of the Shareholder").

The Proxy Holder is only entitled to vote at the relevant general meeting for which the proxy is provided (or such subsequent meeting having the same agenda) and an Authorized Shareholder can only appoint one proxy to represent it.

Each Authorized Shareholder may act as a Proxy Holder for another Authorized Shareholder taking into account potential conflicts of interests and the obligation to act following written instructions of the proxy provider given in the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions (except the case where the Authorized Shareholder gave proxy to its Proxy Holder under the "Option A" of the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions).

• What documents should a participant bring at the EGM?

(i) A natural person is required to bring at the EGM an international valid ID card, passport or other official document in English confirming his/her identity;

(ii) A legal person is required to bring:

Please note that in all cases the Proxy to represent an Authorized Shareholder at the EGM can only be provided directly by the Authorized Shareholder himself (and not by a proxy of the Shareholder).

In case of any doubts relating to the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions or the Proxy presented by a Proxy Holder to participate in the EGM and admission thereto, the decision of the chairman of the EGM will be decisive regarding the admission of the considered Proxy Holder to attend and vote at the EGM.

For the convenience of its Authorized Shareholders, the Company proposes to appoint any lawyer of NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg, each individually and with full power of substitution, as proxy for the Authorized Shareholders (the Proposed Shareholders' Proxy) to attend the EGM and vote in accordance with the voting instructions of the Authorized Shareholder as provided in the duly filled Proxy Voting Form and Instructions, signed by the relevant Authorized Shareholder.

Please note, however, it is permitted to nominate a proxy other than the Proposed Shareholder's Proxy. One person may represent more than one Authorized Shareholder.

If the designated Proxy Holder is the Proposed Shareholders' Proxy, the following steps will be applicable:

1) Download and complete the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions available on the Company’s website at (http://www.imcagro.com.ua) and indicate the Proposed Shareholders' Proxy as proxy;

2) Duly fill and sign the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions and the voting instructions herein (please be aware that voting instructions must be specifically provided for each resolution if the chosen proxy is the Proposed Shareholders' Proxy, otherwise the Proposed Shareholders' Proxy will abstain from voting for each resolution where no voting instructions were properly provided);

3) Attach thereto all documents specified in the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions (i.e., the original Shareholders' Certificate, if not already deposited with the Company, evidencing the rights of the Authorized Shareholder at the Record Date); and

4) Send the duly completed Proxy Voting Form and Instructions together with all required documents to the Company, no later than Tuesday 22 October 2013, 18.00 CET, within the forms and delays required for the participation by proxy as indicated in the Proxy Voting Form and Instructions.
