De-listing contemplated for 21 May 2013

On 25 April 2013, the Court of Appeal of the canton of Basel-City cancelled the
remaining publicly held registered B shares of Bank Sarasin. This decision
followed Safra's public takeover offer for all publicly held registered B shares
of Bank Sarasin, which was completed in October 2012, and as a result of which
Safra held 99% of the share capital and voting rights of Bank Sarasin.

At the request of Bank Sarasin, the SIX Swiss Exchange has agreed to the
delisting of the Sarasin B Shares. In compliance with the contemplated
timetable, it is expected that the delisting takes place on Tuesday 21 May 2013
and that the Sarasin B shares be traded for the last time on the SIX Swiss
Exchange on Friday 17 May 2013 (last trading day).
