Küsnacht, 12.04.2018.By the end of the statutory grace period, 96.90 percent of

On 22 December 2017, the media group Tamedia made a preliminary announcement of

On 2 February 2018, Tamedia AG published the detailed Offer Prospectus for the

publication of the definitive interim result, at which time 89.48 percent of the
Goldbach shares had already been tendered to Tamedia, the remaining
shareholders, who had not yet tendered their shares, had another opportunity to
do so during the statutory grace period.

According to the provisional final result, a total of 6'098'790 shares of the
Goldbach Group had been tendered to Tamedia by the end of the statutory grace
period on 11 April 2018, 4:00 pm CEST. This represents 96.90 percent of the
maximum number of 6'293'876 Goldbach shares that are subject to the offer.

According to the ordinance of the Swiss Takeover Board regarding public takeover
offers, the final result at hand is provisional. Tamedia will publish the
definitive final result of the takeover offer to Goldbach on 17 April 2018, as
per applicable law.

After the completion of the takeover of Goldbach, Tamedia intends to pay a cash
compensation to the remaining minority shareholders and to have the Goldbach
Group delisted. However, the offer continues to be subject to the restrictions
and conditions as determined in the Offer Prospectus, including the approval of
the Swiss Federal Competition Commission. Tamedia and Goldbach anticipate
receiving the approval in May or, in case of an in-depth review, by September
2018 at the latest. Therefore, Tamedia will postpone the closing of the offer,
subject to the fulfilment of all terms and conditions as published in the Offer
Prospectus, to this coming May or June, or in case of an in-depth review by the
Federal Competition Commission, to September or October 2018. The closing date
will be announced by Tamedia once all of the conditions of the offer have been
fulfilled.
