annual report


Pfaeffikon SZ, 28 February 2007 --- In the fiscal year ending 31 December 2006 shaPE made further progress as documented by the share price which gained 12% to a record level of CHF 243.00. shaPE achieved a gross investment income on its private equity portfolio of CHF 12.0 million, including realized and unrealized gains on investments of CHF 14.8 million and a net foreign exchange rate loss of CHF 2.8 million caused by the continued weakness of the U.S. Dollar vis-à-vis the Swiss Franc.

During the period shaPE’s underlying limited partnerships generated a positive cash flow of CHF 5.4 million which illustrates the mature stage of shaPE’s private equity portfolio. To benefit from the future market development shaPE made six additional commitments at an aggregate volume of CHF 38 million whereof five were follow-on commitments to new funds of current general partner relationships of shaPE.
