Press Release

Sale of liability claims

Baar, Switzerland, 03 August 2015

New Value AG, based in Baar, Switzerland, has conducted negotiations to
enforce the liability claims against the former members of the Board of
Directors and the former auditing company, also with the representatives of
the relevant D&O insurance (liability insurance of the Board of Directors).
So far, an agreement has not yet been reached in these negotiations.

A longer-term conflict and cost-intensive lawsuit to enforce these damage
claims is no longer consistent with the defined, medium-term oriented
implementation strategy of New Value AG. In order to plan this matter in a
better way while limiting the risk, New Value AG has found a partner
willing to assume the claims against the former board members and the
former auditor. The contract was signed on 03 August. The claims for
compensation of damages against the former president of the Board of
Directors and other responsible parties, which New Value AG will pursue
independently, were not a part of this contract and were not transferred.

The buyer has agreed to reimburse up-front an initial portion of the
claims. Thus, New Value AG will immediately gain liquidity. Further
proceedings are cost-neutral for New Value AG, as all legal and court costs
will be borne by the investor. The contract is designed such that New Value
AG will participate substantially in the future proceeds from any agreement
or court proceedings.

Due to the fact that possible proceeds from the legal proceedings have not
yet been taken into account in the balance sheet because of the high degree
of uncertainty with regard to the duration of the proceedings and the scope
of the compensation, the agreed initial payment resulting from the sale of
the claims will lead to an increase in the Net Asset Value (NAV) of New
Value AG by CHF 0.23.
