Change of presidency on the Board of Directors of the Goldbach Group

Küsnacht-Zürich, 5 March 2013. On 30  April  2013  the  Board  of  Directors  of
Goldbach  Group  AG  will  propose  Jens  Alders  to  the  General  Meeting  for
appointment as the new President of the Board. As planned, Bruno  Widmer  is  to
hand over the reins after presiding over the  Board  of  Directors  of  Goldbach
Group AG for six years.

"It was agreed from the outset that  my  tenure  as  President  would  last  six
years. I am now stepping down at  the  right  time  for  both  the  company  and
myself", notes Bruno Widmer (1941). "The Goldbach Group is  in  excellent  shape
and enjoys a high  standing.  Led  by  a  highly  capable  and  visionary  group
management team, it boasts a robust balance sheet and consistently reports  good
figures", the outgoing President of the Board of Directors continued.

Jens Alder (1957) is now set to follow in Bruno Widmer's wake. Jens Alder  holds
a  degree  in  electrical  engineering  from   the   Eidgenössische   Technische
Hochschule (ETH) in Zurich. In 1986 he graduated from  INSEAD  in  Fontainebleau
as a  Master  of  Business  Administration  (MBA).  Jens  Alder  has  played  an
influential role  at  various  companies.  In  1999  he  was  appointed  CEO  of
Swisscom. From 2006 to 2008 he was  CEO  of  TDC,  Denmark's  largest  telephone
company. He currently sits on various boards of directors and  is  president  of
the boards of Sanitas Krankenversicherung and Industrielle  Werke  Basel  (IWB).
"Jens Alder is an established business personality with a profound knowledge  of
the telecommunications industry. He has proven his ability to develop a  company
along successful lines. We are convinced that he is the right person  to  ensure
Goldbach Group AG's lasting  success  on  a  strategic  level",  declares  Bruno

In his capacity as Vice-President, Beat Curti  paid  tribute  to  the  departing
President's accomplishments: "We thank Bruno Widmer for  his  achievements,  his
enthusiasm and his commitment as  President  of  the  Board  of  Directors.  His
expertise and knowledge as one of the leading figures in  advertising  over  the
past 30 years, both in Switzerland and  internationally,  has  been  crucial  in
shaping our strategy and our success."
