* Anthogyr opens door for Straumann to enter fast-growing value segment in
China
* Straumann to acquire 30% stake in Anthogyr
* Both parties intend to broaden cooperation

Basel/Sallanches 25 February 2016
-Anthogyr, French dental implant manufacturer andStraumann, a global leader in
tooth replacement solutions, have announced a partnership agreement that
enables the Swiss company to invest in Anthogyr and to address a broader
section of the fast-growing tooth replacement market in China.

Anthogyr's dental implant system is registered and established in China where
it is positioned as a high-quality attractively-priced option. The agreement
foresees the transfer of Anthogyr's implantology business activities in China
to Straumann by mid-year, giving the latter access to the fast-growing value
segment there. The combination of the two companies' sales capabilities is
expected to provide the critical mass to compete and grow successfully in
this segment. Straumann already leads the premium segment in China and has
recently established a new country organization and distributor network
covering all provinces.

In addition, Straumann is to acquire a 30% stake in Anthogyr and offers
potential leverage to the business in other markets through Instradent, the
business platform that Straumann is building to address the global value
segment with multiple brands. Financial details were not disclosed and the
agreement is expected to become effective at the end of March, subject to the
fulfilment of certain conditions.
