At the Valartis Group AG Extraordinary General Meeting on 15 January 2016, at
St. Annagasse 18, 8001 Zurich, the 9 participants, together with shareholders
represented by the independent proxy, endorsed the motions proposed by the
Board of Directors: "Replacement elections to the Board of Directors" and
"Elections to the Compensation Committee". Out of the total of 5,000,000
bearer shares at a par value of CHF 1.00, 2'601'726, or 52.03 percent of
capital and votes were represented at the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Replacement election to the Board of Directors

Due to the fact that two of the members of the Board of Directors have
withdrawn prior to expiration of their period of office (Urs Maurer-Lambrou
as of 15 June 2015 and Jean-François Ducrest as of 2 November 2015), the
number of members of the Board of Directors and the Compensation Committee
has fallen below the minimum statutory membership of three. Shareholders
voted with a large majority in favour of Stephan Häberle as member of the
Board of Directors up to the first Ordinary General Meeting in 2016. On 23
November 2015, the Cantonal Court of Zug approved a six-month definitive
moratorium for Valartis Group AG. Mr. Häberle will assume dual
responsibilities as member of the Board of Directors and as Group CEO up to
the date of the first Ordinary General Meeting in 2016 following a successful
recovery.

Elections to the Compensation Committee

The Extraordinary General Meeting voted with a large majority in favour of
Messrs. Christoph N. Meister, Gustav Stenbolt and Stephan Häberle as members
of the Compensation Committee, each for a period up to conclusion of the next
Ordinary General Meeting.
