The activities of the members of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee in the 2013 financial year were formally discharged. All the members of the Board of Directors who put themselves forward for a further term of office of one year, as per the new provisions of the Ordinance against Excessive Remuneration in Listed Companies (ERCO), were re-elected. In the course of these elections, the current Board Chairman, Leo Steiner, was confirmed in office. Max Koch did not stand for re-election. The Annual General Meeting elected David Dean as a new member of the Board of Directors. Leo Steiner, Daniel Hirschi and Roland Siegwart were appointed to the Remuneration Committee.

Thomas Tschümperlin was elected by the Annual General Meeting - again in accordance with the provisions of ERCO - as independent proxy. Furthermore, shareholders confirmed PricewaterhouseCoopers AG (PwC), Basel, as external auditors for the 2014 financial year.

Shareholders followed the recommendation of the Board of Directors and rejected the proposal of zCapital AG, Zug, for the abolition of the share register entry and voting rights restriction of 5% in each case.

The necessary adjustments to the Articles of Association resulting from ERCO were approved in their entirety by the Annual General Meeting in a separate vote. To the Board of Directors' regret, the creation of additional conditional capital of CHF 30,000.00 was failed to achieve a qualified majority.
