March 2020

We would like to inform our shareholders, partners and employees that our Group is taking all necessary measures to deal with the deterioration in the health situation linked to the global spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.

Since January, a # COVID-19 crisis unit has been set up to take all the necessary measures during these exceptional times.

We monitor health and economic conditions around the world very closely and do everything in our power to comply with WHO measures and the instructions sent by each competent local authority.

The priority of our Group is to guarantee the safety of all our employees, customers, partners and suppliers all over the world.

I would like to warmly thank all of the Gevelot Group's employees for their commitment and involvement, particularly those whose presence on our various sites is essential. Our teams organize to continue as far as possible to ensure the total or partial continuity of the activity.

With our two centuries of existence and the many difficulties encountered and overcome during this long history, we will all face these very difficult circumstances.

Be vigilant, take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Mario Martignoni

President - Chief Executive Officer
