AEVIS VICTORIA: Stellungnahme zum Bericht des Verwaltungsrats der LifeWatch AG

AEVIS VICTORIA SA (AEVIS VICTORIA) hat vom Bericht des Verwaltungsrats der
LifeWatch AG (LifeWatch) zum öffentlichen Kaufangebot der AEVIS VICTORIA
Kenntnis genommen. Sie bedauert, dass der dafür gebildete Ausschuss das
freundliche Angebot der AEVIS VICTORIA zur Ablehnung empfiehlt. Noch vor einem
Jahr hatte der Verwaltungsrat den Einstieg eines potentiellen Ankeraktionärs
explizit begrüsst und die Zusammensetzung des Gremiums entsprechend verändert.

AEVIS VICTORIA stellt zudem fest, dass der Verwaltungsrat von LifeWatch keine
präzisen Zahlen zur Untermauerung seiner Empfehlung, das Angebot abzulehnen,
vorlegte und dass er für die Beurteilung des Angebots kein unabhängiges
Bewertungsgutachten (Fairness Opinion) in Auftrag gegeben hat. Im Rahmen des
Angebots  von AEVIS VICTORIA wurde Ernst & Young beauftragt, ein unabhängiges
Bewertungsgutachten über die AEVIS VICTORIA-Aktie zu erstellen. Die Analyse von
Ernst & Young bewertet das Tauschangebot für die LifeWatch-Aktionäre zwischen
CHF 12.40 bis CHF 13.60 pro LifeWatch-Aktie.

AEVIS VICTORIA ist davon überzeugt, dass LifeWatch einen starken Ankeraktionär
mit breiter Präsenz im Gesundheitssektor braucht, der eine langfristige Vision
mitbringt und die erforderlichen finanziellen Mittel zur Weiterentwicklung des
Geschäftsmodells einbringen kann.

Nach erfolgreichem Abschluss des Angebots würde LifeWatch als eigenständig
geführte Tochtergesellschaft in die AEVIS VICTORIA-Gruppe integriert werden. Die
Telemedizin-Aktivitäten von AEVIS VICTORIA würden damit nachhaltig gestärkt.
