Press release

Fribourg, 22 January 2016

AEVIS VICTORIA acquires a participation of 40% in the Medgate Group, a leading
telemedicine provider in Switzerland

Medgate is the leading provider of integrated out-patient healthcare in
Switzerland. Thanks to the comprehensive approach of its Telemedicine Center,
its Health Centers and its Partner Network, Medgate's patients benefit from
exhaustive, high-quality medical treatment. AEVIS VICTORIA takes a participation
of 40% in the Medgate Group, retroactivaly as of January, 1, 2016. The Medgate
founders, Andy Fischer and Lorenz Fitzi, remain the majority shareholders. The
purchase price is not communicated.

Due to the high demand, Medgate has strongly developed its activities during the
past 15 years, to become the leading provider of innovative solutions in the
field of telemedicine and integrated healthcare. Medgate employs around 300
persons, of which 100 are doctors. Every day, around 4'900 consultations are
performed in the telemedicine centres. Since the summer of 2014, Medgate offers
its different telemedicine services in Abu Dhabi and since the summer of 2015
also in Australia.

The demand of telemedical consultations is increasing significantly, both in
Switzerland and abroad. On the medical side, this growth is driven by the
pressure on healthcare costs and the progress in the use of telemedicine
sensors. On the technological side, it is driven by the increased availability
of powerful transmission technologies.

Together with the Medgate founders, AEVIS will invest in the development of
integrated healthcare in Switzerland and in the expansion of its
well-established telemedicine concept outside of Switzerland.
