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

- Renewed strength breathed into social partnership in Carmignano
- Continued streamlining of executive management within the Group

On 8 November 2013 the Cham Paper Group announced that the sale of the
Italian mills had fallen through due to the failure to reach an agreement
in contract negotiations with the employees' representatives at Carmignano.
In the meantime the local site management have been able to come to an
economically viable and forward-looking consensus with workers. The new
agreement, adopted by a large majority at the general meeting of the mill's
workforce, enables a significant expansion of the mill's flexibility in
terms of operating hours, especially on bank holidays, while retaining the
original compensation models. This agreement marks a key development and
demonstrates the firm intention of all stakeholders to secure the
strengthened market position of the mill in Carmignano enabled by the
successful restructuring of the Group.

The Board of Directors of the Cham Paper Group are pleased with the
alliance achieved with the social partners and is convinced of the
favourable future prospects of both Italian mills. At the same time they
are continuing to streamline the Group's management. The Executive
Committee is being disbanded; in future the three site managers at
Carmignano, Condino and Cham will report directly to the delegate of the
Board of Directors, Urs Ziegler. Peter Müller, the former site manager at
Cham and in charge of the Swiss paper business, will be taking on various
special projects at Group level. However, in mid 2014 he will leaving the
Cham Paper Group at his own request upon the completion of the two-year
transformation and relocation phase. At the Holding level, Urs Ziegler will
continue to be assisted by Luis Mata, Head of Finance & Controlling, and
Franziska Stöckli, Head of Corporate Services.
