Implenia sets the stage for its future - Unleashing full potential in
Switzerland and international target markets | Customer and market orientation
| Regrouping of expertise within a lean sectorial and regional structure |
Medium-term EBIT target of CHF 100 million achieved earlier than expected

Dietlikon, 5 February 2013 - Since its creation in 2006, Implenia has
developed into a strong, financially robust company offering a comprehensive
range of services, a well-positioned brand as well as an extremely solid base
in the Swiss market and selected international target markets. In the 2012
financial year Implenia increased turnover by a good 6 per cent and achieved
its medium-term EBIT target of CHF 100 million earlier than expected.

From this position of strength, Switzerland's leading construction and
construction services company is now setting the stage for the Group's
successful long-term development. Driven by its vision, values and strategy,
the company wants to unleash its full potential. In order to achieve this
goal, Implenia is regrouping its expertise into a new and powerful
organisational structure based on sectors and regions. This structure is flat
and broad-based, reflecting Implenia's focus on the market, and carefully
aligned to customer needs. It gives the company the best chance to develop new
areas of business, while simultaneously offering employees new and attractive

The Modernisation & Development, Buildings and Tunnelling & Civil Engineering
Sectors look after institutional and cross-regional customers in Switzerland
and internationally. They offer expertise in complex modernisation and project
development contracts, building construction, tunnelling and infrastructure.
Meanwhile, the Regions are Implenia's face in its regional markets. They are
there for local customers in Switzerland and Norway, executing road projects,
civil works, regional building construction and - in Norway - infrastructure
construction. Alongside the existing Corporate Center, Implenia now also has a
Technical Support. It is the group's technical "conscience" and drives both
sustainability as well as innovation.

Implenia's future management structure is broad-based. The former Executive
Committee is followed by a nine-person Group Executive Board (GEBO) including
the operational Heads as well as the Heads of the Corporate Center and the
Technical Support. The new management structure will ensure that the expertise
and experience within Implenia's operating units carry more weight at the
highest level of the group's management.

In addition, on 1 March 2013 Implenia is bringing all its existing operational
units together under the roof of "Implenia Switzerland Ltd." thus greatly
simplifying its legal structure.

On 26 February 2013, Implenia will be announcing its annual results for 2012
as planned. At the media and analysts' conference the CEO and CFO will present
the new organisational structure in detail and provide information about the
related new medium-term goals.

Implenia sets the stage for its future: new organisational structure as at 5
February 2013.
