Draft resolution proposed to be adopted:
“the Meeting resolved to approve the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2018 and 2017 and for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016.” 
2. Consideration of the independent auditor’s report on the Company’s annual accounts. Approval of the Company’s annual accounts as at December 31, 2018 
The Company’s annual accounts as at December 31, 2018 (comprising the balance sheet, the profit and loss account and the notes to such annual accounts) and the report from the Company’s independent auditor on such annual accounts are included in the Company’s 2018 annual report, a copy of which is available on our website at www.ternium.com on the Investor Center section beginning on March 19, 2019.

Draft resolution proposed to be adopted:
“the Meeting resolved to approve the Company’s annual accounts as at December 31, 2018.” 
3. Allocation of results and approval of dividend payment for the year ended December 31, 2018 
In accordance with applicable Luxembourg law and the Company’s articles of association, the Company is required to allocate 5% of its annual net income to a legal reserve, until this reserve equals 10% of the subscribed capital. As indicated in the Company’s 2018 annual accounts, the Company’s legal reserve already amounts to 10% of its subscribed capital, and, accordingly, the legal requirements in that respect are satisfied.
The Board of Directors proposes that a dividend payable in U.S. dollars on May 14, 2019, in the amount of USD 0.12 per Share (or USD 1.20 per ADR), which represents an aggregate sum of approximately USD 235,569,213 million (which is net of the Company’s Treasury Shares), be approved and that the Board of Directors be authorized to determine or amend, in its discretion, the terms and conditions of the dividend payment, including the applicable record date. Accordingly, if this dividend proposal is approved, the Company will make, or cause to be made, a dividend payment on May 14, 2019, in the amount of USD 0.12 per Share (or USD 1.20 per ADR).
While the Company’s annual accounts as at December 31, 2018 show a loss for 2018, the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2018 and 2017 and for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 show a profit of USD 1,662,132,938. Considering the Company’s retained earnings and other distributable

reserves, the Company has distributable amounts which exceed the proposed dividend.
The aggregate amount of approximately USD 235,569,213 (which is net of the Company’s Treasury Shares) to be distributed as dividend on May 14, 2019, is to be paid from the Company’s retained earnings account. The loss of the year ended December 31, 2018, would be absorbed by the Company’s retained earnings account.
Upon approval of this resolution, it is proposed that the Board of Directors be authorized to determine or amend, in its discretion, any of the terms and conditions (including payment date) of the dividend payment. 
Draft resolution proposed to be adopted:
“the Meeting resolved (i) to approve a dividend, payable in U.S. dollars, on May 14, 2019, in the amount of USD 0.12 per share issued and outstanding (or USD 1.20 per ADR), (ii) to authorize the Board of Directors to determine or amend, in its discretion, any of the terms and conditions of such dividend payment, including the applicable record date, (iii) that the aggregate amount of approximately USD 235,569,213 (which is net of the Company’s Treasury Shares) to be distributed as dividend on May 14, 2019, be paid from the Company’s retained earnings reserve, and (iv) that the loss of the year ended December 31, 2018, be absorbed by the Company’s retained earnings account.” 
4. Discharge of members of the Board of Directors for the exercise of their mandate during the year ended December 31, 2018 
In accordance with applicable Luxembourg law and regulations, it is proposed that, upon approval of the Company’s annual accounts as at December 31, 2018, all those who were members of the Board of Directors during the year ended December 31, 2018, be discharged from any liability in connection with the management of the Company’s affairs during such year.
Draft resolution proposed to be adopted:
“the Meeting resolved to discharge all those who were members of the Board of Directors during the year ended December 31, 2018, from any liability in connection with the management of the Company’s affairs during such year.” 
 
5. Election of the members of the Board of Directors 
Pursuant to article 7 of the Company’s articles of association, the annual general meeting must elect a Board of Directors of not less than three and not more than fifteen members, who shall have a term of office of one year, but may be reappointed.
