BB Biotech AG admitted to the SMIM and SPI Index

After the SIX Swiss Exchange's latest regular review of index components, BB
Biotech was admitted to the SMIM Index and the SPI Index (sub-index SPI Mid).
The composition of the two indices will be adjusted after the close of trading
on September 21, 2018, effective as of September 24, 2018.

BB Biotech was previously admitted to the Stoxx Europe 600 in 2014 due to its
growing market capitalization and trading liquidity. "BB Biotech's admission to
the SMIM Index reflects our successful performance in the highly attractive
market of biotechnology," declares Dr. Daniel Koller, Head of BB Biotech's
Investment Team. "With almost 25 years of experience and an investment portfolio
of around CHF 3.5 bn, we are one of the largest investors in this field."

The SMI family, the most widely followed group of indices compiled by SIX Swiss
Exchange, comprises the 50 largest and most liquid stocks in the Swiss stock
market. The blue-chip SMI Index is the most prestigious index of stocks listed
in Switzerland and comprises the 20 largest stocks from the SPI. The SMIM, in
which BB Biotech will be a member effective September 24, 2018, comprises the
next 30 largest and most liquid stocks from the mid cap segment of the SPI. All
SMI and SMIM stocks are included in the SMI Expanded Index, which covers more
than 90% of the Swiss stock market's entire capitalization.
