End of ad hoc release

Profile of the Fortune Management Inc.: FORTUNE Management Inc, Zug/Switzerland, pursues two parallel consolidation strategies: In the Asset Management division, the acquisition of independent asset management companies primarily operating in Switzerland, but also internationally, is in the center of interest; in the Private Equity segment, Fortune focuses on the acquisition of established private equity managers on a global scale. Both operations operate from the same platform. FORTUNE has subsidiaries in Zug, Zurich, Geneva, and Dubai. The company targets the acquisition of a majority share in the asset management or private equity companies. With the integration into the group, the acquired companies of both segments are relieved from as much administrative work ("middle office") as possible. They continue to operate in the market under their established trade name. Neither the customer nor the custodian bank relationships of the asset managers are altered. The realized economies of scale result in improved cost ratios. In the Asset Management division, the support in the areas of research as well as portfolio management aims to enhance the risk-adequate return for the asset managers’ clients. In the Private Equity segment, the companies achieve an increase in volume and a broadening of their base. The shares (ISIN: USU 026281027) of the company are listed at the Geregelter Markt [Regulated Market] (General Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
