- Net asset value per share CHF 195.23, +10.0% since 31 December 2011.

- Realization strategy on track: Since inception in September 2009 CHF 47
million returned to shareholders.

- Portfolio quality and cost efficiency remain key for further execution of
realization strategy.

With a NAV per share increase of 10.0% and a share price increase of 12.6%,
shaPE had a solid first half of the year and is on track with the execution of
the realization strategy. Since inception of the realization strategy in
September 2009, twelve funds were sold in secondary transactions and a total
amount of CHF 47 million was returned to shareholders through share buybacks and
a cash dividend out of the company's general legal reserves from capital
contributions. Portfolio quality and cost efficiency remain key considerations
for the further execution of the realization strategy. Patient harvesting is the
preferred route for the time being and therefore the realization strategy is
expected to continue over the next two to three years.

The share capital reduction resolved at the shareholder meeting in May became
effective in August. Today, the total share capital consists of 580'000 shares.
shaPE continues its share buyback activities on the second trading line (ticker:
SHPNE). According to the capital contribution principle as well as to an
agreement of shaPE with the Swiss tax authorities shares sold over the second
trading line are generally exempt from withholding tax and from income tax.

coming years. shaPE is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the ticker symbol
