     Media release
ALSO reopens offices

In accordance with the recommendations of the national legislators, ALSO AG
will begin to restart operations at its international locations beginning 27
April. In close cooperation with operational staff and a virologist, a team
of experts has developed the framework for this. In a phased program, office
presence will be gradually increased. ALSO Switzerland will serve as a
blueprint for the new normality.

The responsible corona teams in each country will nominate rotating
attendance groups, which will be put together according to clearly defined
guidelines, taking into account the personal situation of each employee.

A comprehensive package of security measures will be in place in the offices
to ensure maximum protection for employees, their families and customers.
They range from changes in office occupancy and body temperature
measurements to the provision of mouth/nose protection masks.

Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN): "The demand in
recent weeks shows that businesses, schools and society need the IT sector
now more than ever. Corona has proved how flexible and powerful the company
is. But it also showed how important personal contact and cross-departmental
network is. We will therefore gradually increase the presence in the
offices. Our highest priority is the safety and health of people."
