Zurich, 28 April 2014

GAM Holding AG today launches a new share buy-back programme with a maximum
limit of 16.7 million shares, to be bought back over a period of up to three
years. The shares will be repurchased over a second trading line at the SIX
Swiss Exchange and earmarked for cancellation.

As announced at the presentation of its annual results on 4 March 2014, GAM
Holding AG today is starting a new share buy-back programme with the purpose
of capital reduction. The cancellation of shares is subject to shareholder
approval at future Annual General Meetings (AGM). Under the new programme,
GAM Holding AG intends to repurchase up to 16.7 million shares. This
corresponds to 10% of its shares in issue excluding the 6.6 million shares
bought back under the previous buy-back programme which are to be cancelled
(as per shareholder vote at the last AGM held on 15 April 2014).

The programme is scheduled to run over a maximum period of three years, ending
on 27 April 2017. The share buy-backs will be executed over a second trading
line at the SIX Swiss Exchange where GAM Holding AG acts as sole buyer. The
sale of GAM Holding AG shares over the second trading line will be subject to
the Swiss federal withholding tax of 35%, calculated on the difference
between the repurchase price of the shares and their par value.

Details of the new share buy-back programme 2014-2017 can be found
