Zofingen, 13 July 2012 -- As announced earlier, Siegfried Holding AG (SIX: SFZN) will exchange land with the City of Zofingen and StWZ Energie AG, the Zofingen public utility company. Agreements concerning the exchange of over 80,000 square meters of land have been signed. As a result, Siegfried will obtain land directly bordering its premises that can be used for expansion. The City of Zofingen in turn acquires property available for the expansion of local companies or the set- tlement of new businesses and production facilities, while StWZ Energie AG gains land suit- able for the relocation of its administration and operations buildings.

The trade-off is part of various measures taken to improve Siegfried’s production facilities, which the company aims to implement in the current year.
