Komax Holding AG: Board of Directors proposes increase in registration and voting rights restriction from 5% to 15%

Komax Holding AG / Komax Holding AG: Board of Directors proposes increase in
registration andvoting rights restriction from 5% to 15% . Processed and

Following an analysis of Komax's current situation and numerous discussions
with shareholders, the Board of Directors has decided to add a proposal to
the agenda of the Annual General Meeting of 12 May 2016 to increase the
registration and voting rights restriction from 5% to 15%.

The aim of the registration and voting rights restriction is to prevent a
shareholder from acquiring a strong minority holding of less than 33 1/3%,
and thereby gainingde facto
control of the company without having to submit a public offer to the other
shareholders and therefore compensate them for this assumption of control.
The Board of Directors has always viewed the registration and voting rights
restriction as an instrument designed to protect the great majority of
shareholders, which is why it is a firm advocate of these instruments.

The Board of Directors has now reevaluated Komax's situation and the concerns
of shareholders, and has arrived at the conclusion that the danger of a
shareholder assuming "silent" control of the company only exists for minority
shareholdings of between 15% and 33 1/3%. It has therefore resolved to submit
a proposal to the Annual General Meeting of 12 May 2016 to increase the
registration and voting rights restriction from 5% to 15%. This restriction
will force anyone who wants to gain control of the company to submit a public
offer to all shareholders. As a result shareholders would benefit from an
offer that would in all likelihood be linked to "control premium".

The Board of Directors is convinced that increasing the 5% limit to 15%
represents a solution that takes equal account of the interests of all
shareholders. On the one hand, it enables shareholders to acquire holdings
with voting rights in excess of 5%. On the other hand, however, it protects
them against a silent takeover.
