6-month report

29.08.2011

Freienbach, 29 August 2011
        
- Net asset value per share CHF 168.66, +4.3% since 31 December 2010 (adjusted
for CHF 25 per share distribution to shareholders in May 2011).

- Fair value of investment portfolio increased by 8.3% in local currencies;
increase however mainly offset by negative currency impact (US Dollar and Euro
depreciating against the Swiss Franc). 

- Further lowered unfunded commitments and now net cash flow positive investment
portfolio reduce liquidity risk.

- Realization strategy on track: CHF 25 per share distributed to shareholders in
May; 170´000 shares or 20% of share capital cancelled and new share buyback
program launched in July.

The investment portfolio of shaPE developed positively with an increase by 8.3%
in local currencies. Currency effects, in particular the US Dollar and the Euro
depreciating significantly against the Swiss France unfortunately offset the
appreciation almost entirely. Overall the net asset value (NAV) per share
increased to CHF 168.66 (+4.3%), mainly as an effect of the conducted treasury
share purchases.

During the first half year several important milestones were achieved under the
imposed realization strategy. The milestones include the achievement of a
finally cash flow positive investment portfolio through the continued sale of
unfunded commitments, a significant cash distribution of CHF 25 as well as a
share capital reduction by the approved maximum amount of 20% of share capital.

Particularly considering the most recent market turmoil and associated macro
economic uncertainty investors are reminded that the harvesting of the intrinsic
value of the investment portfolio will take a considerable amount of time.
Although the full impacts to the private equity industry are yet ambiguous, a
deteriorating real economy in the US and Europe where shaPE has its main
exposure would certainly bring unpleasant headwinds.
