Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR

The sale of the Cham Paper Group's mills in Carmignano and Condino, Italy,
to the Delfort Group announced on 15 July 2013 has fallen through on
account of the unsuccessful outcome of contract negotiations between the
Delfort Group and the Italian employees' representatives in Carmignano.

This means that both mills will remain in the possession of the Cham Paper
Group. They are in a favourable position thanks to the comprehensive
restructuring of the Cham Paper Group during the past two years. By
contrast, the general manager of the Italian mills, Marcello Di Giacomo,
who joined the Cham Paper Group one year ago, will be leaving the Group.
His remit will be assumed by the mill managers in Carmignano and Condino,
Gianluca Scaglioni and Gerold Zuegg, and the Group's executive management.

The activities of the Cham Paper Group in Switzerland will not be impacted
by retaining the Italian mills. As of this year the Group's industrial
operations in Switzerland are focussed on the finishing (coating
technology) of sourced base paper and the development, launch and marketing
of premium product lines and services. The Group is currently immersed in
project planning activities for transforming the 'Papieri' industrial park
in Cham into an attractive urban district.
