Mikron Board of Directors supports the proposal of Veraison SICAV to the Annual
General Meeting

Biel, March 22, 2016, 7 a.m. - The Board of Directors of Mikron Holding AG
supports the proposal of Veraison SICAV, Zurich, to transfer the delisting
competence from the Board of Directors to the Annual General Meeting. The Board
of Directors believes this to be appropriate, because delisting would primarily
affect shareholders.

As announced on March 3, 2016, Veraison SICAV has submitted a request to Mikron
Holding AG for inclusion of an item on the agenda at the Annual General Meeting
of April 12, 2016. In the request, it proposed that the delisting competence be
transferred from the Board of Directors to the Annual General Meeting. The Board
of Directors of Mikron Holding AG has added this proposal to the agenda. The
invitation and agenda for the upcoming Annual General Meeting will be sent to
shareholders of Mikron Holding AG in the next few days. The Board of Directors
believes in the future of Mikron as a listed company. Since delisting would
primarily affect shareholders, it considers it appropriate to transfer the
delisting competence to the Annual General Meeting and, by subjecting it to a
higher decision-making quorum, to introduce an element of minority protection.
