Provisional annual figures:
Gratifying annual results for Cham Paper Group

Cham Paper Group enjoyed a largely satisfying annual result for 2016. The group
has returned to growth after a long and challenging transformation process in
the paper division. There were also improvements in terms of profitability
whereas the lower end of the target margin range was achieved. The paper
division benefited in a slightly weaker market environment from the efficiency
improvements in production and from a return to normal raw material prices. In
the real estate division the clear approval on the development of the Papieri
site by the public voters was the crowning event after a four year planning
phase, paving the way for the realization of the new quarter in Cham.

Cham Paper Group generated 2016 net revenue of approx. CHF 198 million (previous
year: CHF 194.3 million) on the basis of unaudited figures and achieved markedly
better operating results of about CHF 10 million (previous year: CHF 2.4
million). Net income is expected to reach about CHF 8 million (previous year:
CHF 0.5 million).

Cham Paper Group will publish the full year results and the annual report on 27.
March 2017.
