---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Freienbach, 13 November 2013

shaPE is pleased to announce an interim cash distribution of general legal
reserves from capital contributions in the amount of CHF 18 per share. The
distribution will be proposed by the board of directors at the occasion of
an extraordinary shareholder meeting on 4 December 2013. The board of
directors also intends to propose a capital reduction of up to 110'000
shares to cancel treasury shares repurchased under the buyback program.

The proposed interim distribution is a result of the strong liquidity
generated by the underlying private equity portfolio under the realization
strategy. Considering the CHF 38 per share paid out to shareholders earlier
this year total distributions for 2013 will amount to CHF 56 representing a
yield of 41.7%, based on yesterday's closing share price.

In the case of adoption of the proposal, the distribution is expected to be
paid on 12 December 2013. The relevant date for the entitlement to the
dividend (record date) will be 11 December 2013 and the corresponding
ex-dividend date will be 9 December 2013. The distribution is not subject
to Swiss withholding tax.

The invitation to the extraordinary shareholder meeting is available on
www.shape-capital.com.
