Pfaeffikon SZ, 14 November 2008 --- The board of directors of shaPE Capital AG has approved a share buyback program, authorizing the Company to repurchase up to 91´466 registered shares (equivalent to 10% total share capital), subject to the approval of the Swiss Takeover Board. The share buyback will be managed by Zurich Cantonalbank and carried out via a second trading line on the SIX Swiss Exchange. The second trading line is expected to open by beginning of December 2008 and will be maintained until 30 June 2010 at the latest.

The actual number of shares repurchased via the second trading line will depend on the availability of excess cash not needed to finance the private equity commitments as well as on market conditions. shaPE explicitly reserves the right to suspend and resume the program at any time.
