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

Genolier Swiss Medical Network SA (GSMN), the 2nd group of private clinics
in Switzerland and 100% subsidiary of AEVIS, today announces the conclusion
of an important agreement regarding the integration of 100% of the shares
of Klinik Villa im Park AG, a private clinic located in Rothrist (Aargau).
The integration of Klinik Villa im Park is expected to close by the end of
September 2013. AEVIS will proceed with its capital increase based on its
authorised capital until the end of 2013.

GSMN today closed an agreement regarding the integration of 100% of the
shares of Klinik Villa im Park, a private clinic located in Rothrist
(Aargau). Klinik Villa im Park had revenues of close to CHF 20 million in
2012. The real estate hosting the clinic operations are not part of the
transaction and Klinik Villa im Park remains tenant of the 3 clinic
buildings under a long term lease agreement. The transaction will partially
be financed with AEVIS shares. The integration of Klinik Villa im Park is
expected to be completed by the end of September 2013.

Klinik Villa im Park, located between Olten and Solothurn, is the most
important private clinic of its region. Klinik Villa im Park figures on
Aargau's cantonal hospital list and fulfils an essential role in the
hospital landscape of the area. The clinic has mandates in ENT, urology,
orthopaedics and gynaecology. Klinik Villa im Park counts 43 beds and
employs 135 people. Its 53 admitting physicians conduct some 3'000 surgical
interventions and 800 births per year, accounting for 15'000 hospital days.
The management team, represented by Marcel Grawe and Simone Schwinger, will
remain in place.

With the integration into GSMN, Klinik Villa im Park will benefit from the
resources, competences and market share of an important network of private
clinics which will support the clinic's further development. Attractive
synergies will be realised, amongst others with the 3 other Swiss German
clinics of GSMN (Privatklinik Obach, Bethanien and Lindberg), in areas such
as medical partnerships, purchasing, negotiations with insurance companies
and relations with authorities. GSMN intends to continue the former owners'
strategy and invest in infrastructure and quality of service.

The integration of Klinik Villa im Park fits perfectly in GSMN's strategy.
With activities in as of now 9 cantons, GSMN increases its national
presence and reinforces the footprint of its clinics in German speaking
Switzerland. This represents a further step towards the realisation of
GSMN's long term objectives.

The integration of Klinik Villa im Park will need to be reflected in the
legal, financial and organisational structure of AEVIS. Therefore, it will
not be possible for AEVIS to execute the ordinary capital increase as
approved by the General Shareholders Meeting of 5 June 2013 in the
available three-month period. AEVIS will proceed with this capital increase
based on its authorised capital until the end of 2013.
