Ad-Hoc Information: EEII 2015 annual results

Zug, March 23, 2016

EEII AG publishes annual results per 12-31-2015

EEII reports a net loss of CHF 3.25 mln (2014: net loss of CHF 2.3 mln) for the
year 2015. During the reporting period, EEII's net asset value (NAV) decreased
by 38 % from CHF 5.61 to CHF 3.48 per share. The key drivers for the loss were
the negative share price performances of the primary investments in a
deteriorating commodity and political market environment as well as currency
losses on EEII' primary investments.

With the slumping energy commodity prices and the negative developments of the
financial markets in the core investment regions of EEII in Eastern Europe, the
year 2015 also provided a very challenging environment for EEII. During the
reporting period, EEII's net asset value (NAV) decreased by 38 % from CHF 5.61
to CHF 3.48 per share. In absolute terms, the Company reports a net loss of CHF
3.25 mln (2014: net loss of CHF 2.3 mln).

The key drivers for the loss were the negative share price performances of the
primary investments in a deteriorating market environment, in particular the
broad decrease in global commodity prices and the negative developments of the
political situation and the financial markets in the core investment regions of
EEII in Eastern Europe. The main share price contributors to the 2015 loss were
the negative performance of the two main company holdings, Gazprom and Ukrnafta.
Gazprom's and Ukrnafta's share prices lost almost 21% and 43% respectively, of
their values in the company's reporting currency of CHF (CHF -2.34 mln). At the
same time, the exchange rates of the relevant countries' currencies vs. the CHF
also weakened drastically during the year. The Ukrainian Hryvna lost more than
34% and the Russian Rouble lost more than 29% against the CHF during 2015. These
currency losses alone were responsible for virtually all of the reporting losses
in these two holdings for the year.

With the ongoing pressure on oil and other commodity prices, the continuing
Western economic sanctions against Russia, and challenging economic situation in
Ukraine and in Russia, the investment environment for EEII will likely also
remain challenging in 2016.
