AD HOC PRESS RELEASE  
 
Definitive interim result regarding the Goldbach acquisition: close to 90
percent of the shares have already been tendered to Tamedia

Küsnacht, 26.03.2018.The definitive interim result of Tamedia's takeover offer
for the Goldbach Group is now available: A total of 89.48 percent of the
Goldbach Group's shares have already been tendered. The grace period begins
tomorrow, Tuesday, 27 March and ends on 11 April 2018 at 4:00 pm. Tamedia
expects that over 90 percent of the Goldbach shares will be tendered by the end
of the grace period and, in this case, intends to have the Goldbach Group
delisted.

On 22 December 2017, the Swiss media group Tamedia made a preliminary
announcement for a public tender offer to purchase all shares issued by the
Goldbach Group AG (ISIN CH0004870942). On 2 February 2018, Tamedia AG published
the detailed Offer Prospectus for the takeover of the Goldbach Group AG, with an
offer of CHF 35.50 for each registered share. As confirmed by the definitive
interim result, a total of 5,631,725 shares of the Goldbach Group had been
tendered to Tamedia by the end of the offer period on 20 March 2018, 4:00 pm.
This represents 89.48 percent of the maximum number of 6,293,876 Goldbach shares
subject to the offer.

89.48%

Shareholders who have not yet tendered their shares may do so during the grace
period of 10 trading days between 27 March and 11 April 2018, 4:00 pm CET.
Tamedia expects that over
90 percent of the Goldbach shares will be tendered by the end of the grace
period. In this case, Tamedia plans to pay a cash compensation to the remaining
minority shareholders upon execution and to have the Goldbach Group delisted.

Subject to fulfilment of certain conditions, Tamedia has declared that the offer
has been successful. The offer remains subject to the offer restrictions and
conditions in the Offer Prospectus, among other things including the approval of
the Swiss Federal Competition Commission. Tamedia and Goldbach expect to be
granted this approval in May or, in the case of an in-depth review, at the
latest by September 2018. It is therefore expected that the completion of the
offer, subject to the fulfilment of all terms and conditions of the offer, will
be postponed accordingly as published in the Offer Prospectus.
