responsible for the content of this announcement.
The Board of Directors of Bellevue Group and CEO Urs Baumann have decided by
mutual agreement that a new CEO will guide the company through its next phase
of development. This decision ensures full alignment between the Board of
Directors and Executive Board regarding the corporate vision and strategy of
Bellevue Group. After three successful years at the helm, Urs Baumann will be
leaving the Bellevue Group at the end of April to pursue a new
entrepreneurial challenge.
André Rüegg
will assume operational management of the Group ad interim.

Under Urs Baumann's leadership Bellevue Group underwent a compelling
development. In particular Urs Baumann and his team achieved the smooth
transition of management responsibility for Bellevue Group from its founders,
restored the company's profitability as well as significantly increased
assets under management and recurring revenues. In the words of Dr. Thomas
von Planta, Chairman of the Board of Bellevue Group: "During Urs Baumann's
time as CEO, the company was adjusted to the new reality in the wake of the
financial crisis and a sound foundation for further profitable growth was
laid. We are now entering a new chapter in the Group's development. Together,
the Board and Urs Baumann arrived at the conclusion that the next steps
should be taken under new leadership. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I
thank Urs Baumann for his great dedication and his contribution to the
development and success of the Bellevue Group. We wish him every success for
his new entrepreneurial endeavors."

André Rüegg will assume the responsibility of CEO ad interim. He is the
current head of Bellevue Asset Management and has been with Bellevue Group
for more than 6 years. "André Rüegg is an executive with profound knowledge
of Bellevue Group and we are pleased to have him at the helm of the Group
during this interim period," remarks Thomas von Planta. The search for a new
CEO of Bellevue Group has been initiated.
