Correction of media reports on prospecting activity by Bank am Bellevue AG
. Processed and transmitted by Thomson Reuters ONE.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

We note with great surprise that the daily press has published reports of an
interim injunction of the Federal Administrative Court concerning Bank am
Bellevue AG.

Several media reports are incomplete, inaccurate and damaging to reputation in
the terms of the Swiss Federal Banking Act. In fact, the interim injunction only
relates to a small business activity in which Bank am Bellevue AG is engaged. We
would clearly point out that the Bank is at all times permitted to prospect for
clients in its core business areas of brokerage and corporate finance.

We would also draw attention to the fact that Bellevue Asset Management AG is in
no way implicated in, or affected by, the current FINMA proceedings or the
appeal filed at the Federal Administrative Court in this regard.

Bank am Bellevue AG does not further comment on the ongoing proceedings.
