Swiss Hedge Fund Buy-Back Program Equalises Share Price With NAV

In order to achieve capital reduction, Swiss alternative investment company ALTIN AG has launched a share buyback program as part of a broader range of measures to reduce share price discount.

The hedge fund company has already succeeded in bringing the difference between the NAV and the share price from 33% at the end of 2008 to 21.7%. This, among other things, should enable ALTIN’s stock market price to come closer to the NAV.

The Annual General Meeting of shareholders approved a share buyback programme of up to 10% of the share capital. A second trading line for the registered shares of ALTIN will be opened on the SIX Swiss Exchange on 22 July 2009. ALTIN intends to buy back up to 5% of its shares until the end of March 2010.

The offer may be accepted only by Non-US persons, outside the United States.
