Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Freienbach, 2 April 2014

  - Solid fourth full year under realization strategy with a net asset
    value per share and share price increase of +6.5% and +33.9%
    respectively in 2013.

  - Strong fund distributions and secondary sales enable record
    distributions of CHF 56 per share to shareholders in 2013.

  - Harvesting and opportunistic secondary sales remain first priority of
    realization strategy; role of share buybacks expected to further
    diminish due to narrowed discount.

The year 2013 marked the fourth full year under the realization strategy
and turned out to be another very satisfactory year with a
distribution-adjusted NAV per share increase of 6.5% and a share price
increase of 33.9%. The year-over-year distribution-adjusted NAV per share
increase of 6.5% can be broken down into an effect of 7.3% from the
increased valuations of the underlying funds, a positive impact of 2.9%
from the continued purchase of treasury shares at a discount to NAV, -1.0%
from FX movements and a negative impact of -2.7% from costs. The mature
private equity portfolio continued to produce strong positive cash flows in
2013. Excluding sale proceeds distributions received amounted to CHF 24.5
million representing 24.6% of the beginning years' investment value of CHF
99.4 million. Total capital calls paid over the year amounted to merely CHF
0.5 million which is again significantly lower as in the previous two years
(2012: CHF 6.5 million, 2011: CHF 7.7 million) and is a direct consequence
of the elapsed investment periods of 2007 vintage funds.

With a distribution of CHF 38 per share paid out in May and a distribution
of CHF 18 per share paid out in December, a total of CHF 56 per share was
returned to the shareholders in 2013, which is equivalent to almost 28% of
the beginning years' NAV. Together with the CHF 25 per share distribution
paid out in 2011, a total of CHF 81 per share has so far been returned to
shareholders. For the upcoming annual general meeting the board of
directors proposes a cash distribution of CHF 22 per share. If approved, a
total amount of CHF 103 per share will have been returned to shareholders.

shaPE intends to continue the adopted harvesting strategy over the coming
quarters while opportunistically selling funds if deemed attractive. Share
buybacks are expected to play a minor role due to the narrowed discount.
