2014 business year - traffic income once again over 120 million

The Jungfrau Railway Group achieved a traffic income of 121.5 million
francs in the 2014 business year, the same as the previous year.

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

In 2014, for the first time over 850,000 guests travelled to Europe's
highest-altitude railway station. Excursion traffic to the Jungfraujoch -
Top of Europe continues to benefit from rising demand from Asia. 866,000
people visited the Jungfraujoch, representing an increase of 5.2 percent
over the previous year and the best result in its history. Traffic income
recorded a plus of 1.8 per cent. The fact that Jungfrau Railways has
intensively cultivated the Asian market and been able to further strengthen
the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe brand has clearly paid off.

Winter sport

The result for the Jungfrau Ski Region fell below average from the
beginning of 2014 to the end of season in spring 2014. The drop in revenue
was in particular due to the declining number of holiday guests. The
2014/15 winter season was also faced with a difficult start due to
unfavourable weather conditions. Thanks to powerful snowmaking equipment,
it was possible, for Jungfrau Railways to open many of the facilities in
its Kleine Scheidegg area from mid-December 2014 and provide runs with good
conditions. The Jungfrau Ski Region is a cooperative product in which the
Jungfrau Railway Group holds more than a 60% share. In 2014, fewer than one
million skier visits were recorded for the first time. Traffic income in
the winter-sport business segment fell by 2.2 million francs, equivalent to
a minus of 9 per cent.

Experience mountains

In the experience mountains business segment, which comprises excursion
traffic to the Harder Kulm, First and Winteregg-Mürren, the Jungfrau
Railway Group recorded consistently good results. From 1 January to 31
December 2014, the Harder Railway increased its traffic income by 13.7 per
cent. The First Aerial Cableway achieved an increase in revenue of 5.3 per
cent. The Lauterbrunnen-Mürren Rail and Cableway achieved a growth in
traffic income of 8.1 per cent. Overall, traffic income for the experience
mountains segment increased by 7.5 percent, setting a new record.

Prospects for 2015

The start of 2015 has proved a success. Up to 15 February 2015, the
Jungfraujoch showed an increase in visitor numbers of 16.2 percent compared
to the previous year. The development in the euro exchange rate will
present a challenge for the Jungfrau Railway Group. It is not anticipated
that winter business will be greatly affected in the short term, however
delayed effects will be felt. The diversification of the business sectors
and continuing intensive cultivation of the Asian markets give Jungfrau
Railways confidence in regard to summer business.

To combat the downward trend in winter sport and the difficult
exchange-rate situation, Jungfrau Railways are focusing on a continued
increase in quality. With the planned V-Cableway project, travel times will
be considerably reduced and a direct public-transport link, a terminal with
shops and ski storage areas and facilities meeting international standards
