Press Release

Roger Richardson leaves LifeWatch

Two months ago, LifeWatch set up a new organizational structure along
global business units to better focus on market needs. Today a further
adjustment has been made as LifeWatch and Roger Richardson, former
President of Global Patient Services, part ways effective immediately. The
initial findings of an ongoing internal investigation revealed that certain
activities in Global Patient Services were not being conducted according to
the company's principles and internal regulations. In keeping with the
Board of Directors' commitment to global risk management, the Board decided
it was in the best interest of the company and the shareholders for the
parties to separate. We thank Mr. Richardson for his service and wish him
well on his future endeavors.

Mr. Richardson had two roles within the company; one was a global role as
President of Global Patient Services for LifeWatch AG and the other was
President of LifeWatch Services, Inc. located in Rosemont, Illinois/USA.
With respect to Mr. Richardson's global role, the Board of Directors of
LifeWatch AG has appointed Dr. Stephan Rietiker, CEO, to temporarily also
assume the role of Interim President of Global Patient Services. This
division will now be run out of Switzerland rather than the United States.
With respect to Mr. Richardson's role as President of the U.S. subsidiary,
until a replacement can be found, Michael Turchi will, in addition to his
function as CFO, serve as Interim President of LifeWatch Services, Inc.


Upcoming results' announcement:
LifeWatch will report its half-year results 2014 on August 20.
A conference call will be held at 14.00 CET the same day. Dial-in will be
