GAM Holding AG announced that David M. Solo has decided to step down from his current role as Group Chief Executive Officer and from the Group Management board effective September 8, 2014. The Board of Directors nnounced the appointment of Alexander S. Friedman as his successor. Solo joined the Group via GAM as CEO in 2004, then became CEO of the enlarged Asset Management division of Julius Baer in 2006. Following the separation from Julius Baer he continued as CEO of the operating entities GAM and Swiss & Global Asset Management, and finally - after moving from a pure financial holding model to an integrated structure - he assumed the role as Group CEO of GAM Holding AG in April 2013.  While Friedman will take over seamlessly on 8 September 2014, Solo will assist him and the Board of Directors over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition, before pursuing new challenges. The leadership changes are subject to the customary approvals by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA. Prior to joining the company as Group CEO (effective 8 September 2014 and subject to regulatory approval), Alexander S. Friedman served as the Global Chief Investment Officer of UBS Wealth Management and Wealth Management Americas, as Chairman of the UBS Global Investment Committee and as a Group Managing Director.

GAM Holding AG Reports Earnings for the First Half Ended June 30, 2014

GAM Holding AG reported earnings for the first half ended June 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported underlying net profit of CHF 93.1 million. Before tax, underlying profit of CHF 113.1 million: First half 2014 results surpassed pre-tax profit of second half 2013 as cost cuts exceeded revenue fluctuations. IFRS net profit of CHF 90.8 million, of which CHF 89.8 million attributable to GAM Holding AG shareholders. Underlying net profit declined by 5% from the second half of 2013 and by 17% from the first half. Basic earnings per share, at CHF 0.57, declined slightly less (3% from the second half of 2013 and 15% from the first half), as the decrease in net profits was somewhat mitigated by the buy-back of own shares for cancellation. The Group's operating income totalled CHF 307.4 million, down 2% from the second half of 2013. A reduction in average assets under management in investment management, reflecting the outflows experienced in the second half of 2013 and in the first quarter of this year, drove net management fees and commissions down 3% to CHF 267.3 million. This was largely offset by a 17% rise in performance fees which amounted to CHF 34.9 million. Performance fee contributions from a number of equity and fixed income strategies improved, particularly from the absolute return/unconstrained bond strategy whose annual performance fee is booked at the end of June.

GAM Holding AG Approves Dividend for 2013 Payable on April 24, 2014

GAM Holding AG announced that at the annual general meeting held on April 15, 2014, the shareholders approved a dividend distribution of CHF 0.65 per share for 2013, an increase of 30% over previous dividends. Shareholders agreed that the dividend would be distributed from capital contribution reserves (which totaled CHF 1,537.4 million as at December 31, 2013) rather than from retained earnings, making it exempt from Swiss federal withholding tax for all shareholders. For shareholders resident in Switzerland who hold the shares as part of their private assets, the dividend will also be exempt from income tax. In total, the dividend distribution will amount to around CHF 105 million, corresponding to approximately half of the underlying net profit achieved by the group in 2013. Ex-dividend date is April 17, 2014. Dividend record date is April 23, 2014 and dividend payable date is April 24, 2014.
