Jungfrau Railway Group achieved highest profit ever

The Jungfrau Railway Group has once again increased its result in
comparison to the previous year, achieving a record profit of 30.4 million
francs in 2014. The result will be commented on at today's financial
statement media conference in Bern.

With an operating revenue of 165 million francs, the Jungfrau Railway Group
recorded the highest revenue in its history, achieving an increase of 0.8%
on the previous year's record figure. The growth was reached mainly in
business with Asian guests. In 2014, for the first time, over 850,000
guests travelled to Europe's highest-altitude railway station: a total of
866,000 people visited the Jungfraujoch. This represents an increase of 5.2
percent over the previous year and the best result since the opening of the
Jungfrau Railway in 1912. In the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe business
segment, the traffic revenue result of CHF 94.3 million showed a plus of
1.8%. The Jungfrau Railways' further global strengthening of the
Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe brand has clearly paid off.

The Jungfrau Railway Group recorded consistently good visitor numbers in
the experience mountains business segment, which comprises excursion
traffic to the Harder Kulm, First and Winteregg-Mürren. In 2014, total
traffic revenue increased by 7.5% to CHF 10 million, another record.

The positive development of the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe and experience
mountains business segments made it possible to offset the decline in
results in the winter sport segment. Winter sport was below average with
revenue of 22.1 million francs, a drop of 9% in comparison to last year.
This was in particular down to the fall in the number of holiday guests
from the beginning of the year to the end of the season in spring 2014. The
2014/15 winter season also faced a difficult start with less than
favourable weather conditions.

The Jungfrau Railway Group invested 57 million francs during the year under
review. A major portion was used for the procurement of new rolling stock
in relation to the V-Cableway project. CHF 50 million was spent on the
V-Cableway project up to the end of 2014. This is about one-fifth of the
total that the Jungfrau Railway Group is investing in the project.

Please note: 2015 Prospects on page 2


The start of 2015 has proved successful for the Jungfraujoch. An increase
in frequency of almost 25,000 visitors was recorded up to 19 April 2015.
This equates to a plus of 18% compared to last year. In contrast, and
despite excellent snow and piste conditions, the winter sports segment
remained in decline from the beginning of the season in December 2014 to
the end in April 2015. At 975,000 guests, skier visits were 7% down on the
2013/2014 winter-sport season.

The Annual General Meeting of the Jungfrau Railway Group will be held in
Interlaken on 18 May 2015. The Executive Board recommend an unchanged
dividend of 1.80 francs.
