25% Decrease in Share Price

We want to respond to the rather disappointing developments in EMTS`s share price over the last week. The past several trading days have resulted a decrease of roughly 25% of our Company`s market value. We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that this negative development in share price does not reflect the business fundamentals of EMTS. The instigating reason for the fall in our stock was the liquidation via the stock exchange of a London- based investment fund that had, amongst several other stocks, EMTS as part of its portfolio. We are informed from our sources that this fund has exited the majority of its position in EMTS so that we do not anticipate further selling pressure from in the coming days. Additionally, the negative sentiment in the broader markets globally led to further losses of our share price.

Positive Business Development

This decrease in share price in no way reflects the fundamental situation of our Company. After a successful 2000 and a fantastic half-year 2001, EMTS anticipates this positive development continuing in the foreseeable future. There is a consistent and strong demand for our services. We are already in the position today to announce that, for the full-year 2001, we will beat both our own estimates as well as the expectations from the analysts who cover our Company. This includes both organic and acquisitive growth for both sales as well as earnings figures.

Looking Forward

All of the investment banks covering our stock have recommended a "buy" and have set the share price target well above CHF 100. Compared to peer group mulitples EMTS is sharply undervalued - we trade at a P/E of well under 20x based on 2001 estimates, and this with an earnings growth of more than 100% (see half-year report).

We anticipate further growth for 2002. Our most important customers, the mobile handset producers, will continue the trend towards oursourcing more and more services, where we, because of our European wide presence, will benefit from this development. Our acquisition from Siemens of a service operation in Denmark that we announced last week further exemplifies our strategy of all- around service providing on a complete and international basis. In the coming weeks we will make further announcements regarding the expansion of our business activities. None of our core investors - including the venture capital companies who are no longer bound by the lock-up period - intends to sell shares in the near future. We are convinced that the combination of a stable shareholder structure together with the continued and consequent development of our successful business will soon be reflected in our share price.
