---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Board of Directors of the group of private clinics Genolier Swiss
Medical Network SA ('GSMN') decided on 12 December 2011 to conduct a
capital increase by offering subscription rights to the existing
shareholders. The share capital is to be increased by a maximum of CHF
5,167,165 through the issue of up to 1,033,433 new registered shares with a
nominal value of CHF 5 per share. The subscription price for each new
registered share has been set at CHF 19. The new registered shares will be
created from the authorized capital of GSMN.

Shareholders will be offered the right to subscribe one new registered
share for 6 existing registered shares. The subscriptions rights are not
tradable on the stock exchange. The subscription period runs from 14
December 2011 to 16.00 on 20 December 2011. The first trading day of the
new shares is foreseen on 23 December 2011. Delivery of the new registered
shares against payment of the subscription price should occur on 27
December 2011. M.R.S.I. supports the transaction and has the intention to
subscribe 870'562 new shares for a value of CHF 16.5 million.

Subject to the execution of the acquisition of Ars Medica Clinic and
Sant'Anna Clinica by GSMN, Sogeho International SA, the former owner of
both clinics, will become the second largest shareholder of GSMN in 2012 by
acquiring from M.R.S.I. a participating interest of maximum 553'000 GSMN
shares.

A higher level of equity is necessary to carry out the announced and
planned co-operations and takeovers. This issue of new shares will provide
GSMN with additional equity to implement its growth strategy.
