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

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

The PTO group today holds 13.14% of the share capital and voting rights of
Victoria-Jungfrau Collection AG (Victoria-Jungfrau)

AEVIS Holding SA (AEVIS) has published today its public tender offer
prospectus for the shares of Victoria-Jungfrau which was pre-announced on
24 October 2013. This public tender offer, launched at a price of CHF
250.00 per share, represents an opportunity for existing Victoria-Jungfrau
shareholders to sell their shares in the light of the de-listing from the
Bern and Zurich Exchanges scheduled for 29 November 2013. AEVIS' offer
represents a premium of 37% above the 60 days VWAP share price before the
pre-announcement and is well above the minimum price determined by Ernst &
Young in the context of the PTO regulations. The offer period will last
till 30 December 2013. In the event of a successful offer,
Victoria-Jungfrau would become an additional subsidiary of AEVIS and would
pursue the strategy developed by the actual management. The Swiss Takeover
Board has confirmed the conformity of the offer to the regulations
applicable on public tender offers.

AEVIS and its key shareholders EMER Holding SA (Michel Reybier) and HR
Finance & Participations SA (Antoine Hubert and Géraldine Hubert-Reynard)
currently hold 13.14% of the shares of Victoria-Jungfrau. The public tender
offer is subject to various conditions one of which being that AEVIS and
its key shareholders hold, together with the shares tendered in the public
offer, at least 51% of the shares of Victoria-Jungfrau by the end of the
offer period. In the event of a successful offer, Victoria-Jungfrau would
become the subsidiary of AEVIS dedicated to the hotel business. AEVIS
intends to pursue and intensify the repositioning strategy initiated by the
current management of Victoria-Jungfrau. AEVIS will support the necessary
investments in the establishments of Victoria-Jungfrau as well as the
growth strategy asserted by the management.

Due to the illiquidity of the Victoria-Jungfrau share and in conformity
with the regulations applicable to public tender offers, Ernst & Young AG
was mandated to perform an independent valuation of Victoria-Jungfrau and
determine the minimum price per Victoria-Jungfrau share. The price of CHF
250.00 offered by AEVIS includes a premium of 13.8% compared to the minimum
price of CHF 219.60 determined by Ernst & Young AG and of 37% compared to
the volume-weighted average share price over the last 60 trading days
(VWAP) before the pre-announcement. The offer period will start on 28
November 2013 and end on 30 December 2013. UBS SA was mandated by AEVIS
Holding for the execution of the public tender offer.
