In 2012, the Jungfrau Railway Group achieved a record profit of 26.0 million
francs, exceeding the previous year's result by 2.2 per cent. The past business
year will be commented on at today's financial statement media conference in

With an operating revenue of 157.9 million francs, the Jungfrau Railway Group
recorded the highest revenue in its history. Growth was above all reached in
business with Asian guests. 833,000 people visited the Jungfraujoch-Top of
Europe in 2012, more than at any other time in the 100-year history of the
Jungfrau Railway. The Jungfrau Railway Group's strategy of strengthening its
global marketing activities has clearly paid off. 

In the winter-sport business segment, the Jungfrau Railway Group recorded a
revenue of 23.4 million francs, equivalent to a slight reduction of 0.5 per cent
on the previous year. The winter-sport business suffered under the strong Swiss
franc, with fewer guests from European countries travelling to Switzerland and
the Jungfrau Region. In addition, more and more Swiss took their winter holidays
abroad. The 2012/2013 winter season started well. Thanks to early snowfalls, it
was possible to open the facilities on 1 December 2012 - three weeks earlier
than the previous year.

The Jungfrau Railway Group recorded varying results in the experience mountains
business segment, which comprises excursion traffic to the Harder Kulm, First
and Winteregg-Mürren. With a total traffic income of 8.5 million francs (-2.3%)
it achieved a pleasing result in 2012.

The Jungfrau Railway Group can look back on a very successful centenary year.
This was celebrated with over 80 special activities. In January 2012 the
Jungfrau was illuminated as a prelude to the celebrations. Another highlight was
the opening on 30 March 2012 of the Alpine Sensation - a 250-metre-long
experience tunnel on the Jungfraujoch. With this investment of CHF 18.4 million,
the Jungfraujoch excursion destination has been given considerable added value.
