Ad-Hoc Information: EEII 2013 annual results

Zug, March 12, 2014

EEII AG publishes annual results per 12-31-2013

EEII reports a net loss of CHF 2.4 mln (2012: net loss of CHF 13.4 mln) for
the year 2013. During the reporting period, EEII's net asset value (NAV)
decreased by 16 % from CHF 9.77 to 8.22 per share. The Board of Directors
intends to reduce the currently high risk exposure to the Shareholders and
therefore proposes to the General Meeting of Shareholders a payout of CHF
1.12 per share.

With the negative developments of the financial markets in the core
investment regions of EEII in Eastern Europe, 2013 was a difficult year for
EEII: During the reporting period, EEII's net asset value (NAV) decreased
by 15.9 % from CHF 9.77 to 8.22 per share. In absolute terms, EEII reports
a net loss of CHF 2.4 mln (2012: net loss of CHF 14 mln). The key drivers
for the loss were the negative performance of the main investments in a
deteriorating market environment.

The economic indicators in Central and Eastern Europe are not improving and
the country risks for the markets in which EEII concentrates its
investments remain substantial. The current high degree of political unrest
in the Ukraine & Russia and the recent dynamic changes give us cause for
great concern. EEII is following these dynamic developments very closely
and has reduced its Ukrainian risk exposure.

The Board of Directors plans to reduce the high risk exposure to the
Shareholders, and therefore proposes to the General Meeting of Shareholders
a payout of CHF 1.12 per share. The payout will be carried out by reducing
the nominal value of each share. For that purpose the Board of Director
proposes to the General Meeting of Shareholders in a two-step process to
first offset EEII's accumulated deficit with the existing reserves, and in
a second step to execute a capital reduction over CHF 2'718'968 from CHF
15'275'100 to CHF 12'556'132 via a par value reduction from CHF 10.00 to
CHF 8.22 per share.
