Cham, 14 July 2015
Cham Paper Group publishes preliminary key figures
 Challenging first half-year 2015

As expected and communicated, the paper sector of Cham Paper Group faced a
challenging first half year 2015. Investments made to increase the
capacities of the paper machines in Carmignano at the beginning of the year
and the transition of the coating activities from Cham to Italy during the
second quarter caused temporary capacity constraints and production
inefficiencies. In addition, the massive strengthening of the US dollar
against the Euro resulted in significantly higher pulp prices that could
not immediately be passed on to customers through price increases. In the
real estate sector, preparations for the transformation of the industrial
area into a new urban quarter went according to plan. On the basis of
preliminary results, the Group achieved during the first half-year total
revenues of CHF 100 million, 13% below the previous year's period. In local
currencies, however, revenues have been on the level of the prior year. The
operating result before restructuring charges is expected in the range of
CHF 1 - 2 million, the net result should be even.

Cham Paper Group will publish the full half-year report on 20 August 2015.

 The Cham Paper Group is a leading manufacturer of coated speciality
papers. Its papers have surface coatings that give them functionalities
that offer added value for customers. The company was founded in 1657 and

Condino), as well as operating a global distribution network.
The decision to focus on development and distribution activities and to
withdraw from paper production in Switzerland has created new space at the
factory site in the centre of Cham. The Cham Paper Group is developing an
11-hectare area there, the Papieri-Areal.
The Cham Paper Group (stock exchange symbol: CPGN) is listed on
Switzerland's SIX Swiss Exchange.
