2015 business year - traffic revenue increased

The Jungfrau Railway recorded a traffic income of 134 million francs and thus was able to increase this by 10.3% in
comparison to the previous year.

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

In 2015, for the first time, over 1 million visitors travelled to Europe's highest-altitude railway station. The
millionth guest arrived on the Jungfraujoch on 30 December 2015. Excursion traffic to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe
continued to benefit from the rising demand from Asia during the year under review. In 2015, 1,007,000 persons visited
the Jungfraujoch; the best result in its history. With a traffic income of CHF 107.6 million, the 100 million franc mark
was exceeded for the first time, an increase of 14.1 percent. The Jungfrau Railways strategy of intensively cultivating
the Asian market and further strengthening the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe brand has clearly paid off.

Winter sport

The result for the Jungfrau Ski Region from the beginning of 2015 to the end of the season in spring 2015 fell below
average. Despite good snow conditions, a drop in numbers was recorded for day-visitors as well as holiday guests.
Because of constant warm temperatures and little snow, the Jungfrau Ski Region had a difficult start to the 2015/2016
winter season, similar to the previous year. Nevertheless, thanks to powerful snowmaking equipment, from the beginning
of December it was possible for Jungfrau Railways to open many of its facilities in certain parts of the Kleine
Scheidegg and First areas and offer good skiing conditions. The Jungfrau Ski Region is a cooperative product in which
the Jungfrau Railway Group holds more than a 60% share. In 2015, with 971,000 skier visits, fewer than one million skier
visits were recorded for the second time in a row. Traffic revenue fell by CHF 0.6 million to CHF 21.6 million in the
winter sports segment, a minus of 2.5 per cent.

Experience mountains

In the experience mountains business segment, which comprises excursion traffic to the Harder Kulm, First and
Winteregg-Mürren, the Jungfrau Railway Group recorded overall good results. The Harder Railway increased its traffic
income from 1 January to 31 December 2015 by 24 per cent. The First Aerial Cableway recorded an increase of 7.7 per
cent. The Lauterbrunnen-Mürren Rail and Cableway achieved a growth in traffic income of 8.9 per cent. Overall, the
experience mountains segment achieved traffic revenue of 11.2 million. The increase of 12.1 per cent on the previous
year represents a record.

Prospects for 2016

Despite the difficult situation caused by a number of group cancellations after the attacks in Paris and the
introduction of biometric visas for visitors from China, only 2,947 fewer guests to the Top of Europe were recorded up
to 15 February 2016. This represents a reduction of 6.3 per cent. As expected, the 2015/2016 winter sports business
season is feeling the effect of the low euro rate.

The diversification and the continuing intensive cultivation of the Asian markets fill Jungfrau Railways with confidence
with regard to summer business. From mid-May 2016, individual seat reservations will be introduced on the Kleine
Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch section, thus increasing quality for Jungfraujoch guests. At the same time, the evening timetable
will be extended.

To combat the downward trend in winter sports and the difficult exchange rate situation, Jungfrau Railways are focusing
on a continued increase in quality. The planned V-Cableway project will considerably reduce travel times and created
facilities in line with international standards. The aim is to put the cableways into operation in 2018/2019.
