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

The offer price is fixed at CHF 30.00 for each new share

AEVIS Holding SA will launch an authorized capital increase this week by
offering 1,593,316 new registered shares at an offer price of CHF 30.00 per
share. This authorized capital increase replaces the ordinary capital
increase decided at the Annual General Meeting of 6 June 2013, which was
postponed due to on-going acquisitions. Each shareholder will be entitled
to subscribe to one new share for eight existing shares. The gross proceeds
of some CHF 47.8 million will be used for general corporate purposes of the
fast growing company. The key shareholders of AEVIS support the transaction
and will exercise their subscription rights. Bank Vontobel has been
assigned to conduct this capital increase.

The Board of Directors of AEVIS Holding SA (AEVIS) decided on 6 December
2013 to conduct an authorized capital increase by offering subscription
rights to the existing shareholders. The share capital of currently CHF
63,732,645 is to be increased to CHF 71,699,225 by issuing 1,593,316 new
registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 5.00 per share. Shareholders
will be offered the right to subscribe new registered shares at an offer
price of CHF 30.00 per share. Each holder of one existing share of AEVIS on
9 December 2013 (after the close of trading on the SIX Swiss Exchange) will
be allotted one subscription right. Eight subscription rights will entitle
to subscribe to one new registered share. The subscription rights will not
be tradable on the stock exchange, but are transferable. The subscription
period runs from 10 December 2013 to 17 December 2013 until 12.00 (Swiss
time). The first trading day of the new shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange is
foreseen on 18 December 2013. Delivery of the new registered shares against
payment of the subscription price is planned for 20 December 2013. The key
shareholders of AEVIS, the M.R.S.I. group (Antoine Hubert and Michel
Reybier), support the transaction and will exercise their subscription
rights.

The proceeds from the transaction after transaction costs will be used for
general corporate purposes and will further strengthen the Group's equity
base and thus increase its financial flexibility. The share issuing is
fully independent of the public tender of AEVIS for Victoria-Jungfrau
Collection and the capital increase will be conducted irrespective of the
outcome of the tender offer for Victoria-Jungfrau Collection. This capital
increase replaces the ordinary capital increase decided at the Annual
General Meeting held on 6 June 2013 which was postponed due on-going
acquisitions. Bank Vontobel has been assigned by AEVIS to conduct this
capital increase.

AEVIS has also successfully requested the formal listing of its entire
conditional capital on the SIX Swiss Exchange as of 18 December 2013.
