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

On 21 August 2014 the Cham Paper Group announced that it will be boosting
the competitive strength of its speciality papers by planning the continued
transfer of technology from Switzerland to Italy.  The relocation affects
the coating technology operations currently run in Cham for producing the
digital imaging and barrier papers. Continued relocation of operations is
to take place in the first quarter of 2015 and is expected to result in a
further reduction of approx. 50 staff at the Group's registered office in

The Board of Directors and the Executive Management Board immediately
contacted the social partner organisations and cantonal authorities for the
purpose of carefully planning the current redundancies with the involvement
of all stakeholders in a socially responsible manner. The goal of this is
to sustainably secure the remaining 30 to 40 positions at Cham in Research
& Development (Digital Imaging), Marketing & Sales, Small roll processing
and Group administration.

During the three-week consultation period, proposals for alternative
solutions could be submitted to the employee representation committee of
the mill in Cham. The consultation period ended on 14 September. No
petitions were received from the employee representation committee during
this period. The Executive Management Board will now initiate talks as
planned with the social partner organisations for the purpose of fleshing
out the details of the redundancy scheme with a view to finalising the
scheme in the fourth quarter of 2014.
