					Colibrys SA Relocates to New Premises in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland

Colibrys SA, a world leading manufacturer of sensors for precision
navigation and seismic monitoring announced today their decision to
relocate locally.

Neuchatel, Switzerland, February 08, 2012 -- Colibrys SA, a world leading
manufacturer of sensors for precision navigation and seismic monitoring
announced today their decision to relocate locally, some 35kms distant in
the Y-Parc at Yverdon-les-Bains, Canton Vaud, Switzerland.

The relocation which encompasses all parts of the Colibrys business will
be completed by mid 2013. The project is supported by some 10mio USD
investment in support of dedicated new clean-rooms for the manufacture of
6 inch silicon wafers; advanced assembly and test capabilities as well as
all systems design, product engineering and administration activities.

Colibrys will benefit enormously in the medium term from this decision,
profiting from substantial rent reductions whilst benefiting from being
housed in extremely modern eco-friendly premises. The new premises owned
by Meigerhorn were constructed within the heart of the Y-Parc technology
centre in 2010 targeted specifically to house multiple high tech SME
businesses.

Sean Neylon, CEO of Colibrys was quoted saying “This move has been under
negotiation now for 12 months. All our stakeholders will benefit directly
and indirectly from the financial benefits implicit in this decision.
This will allow us to reinvest further in expanding our business into
medical and industrial markets, extending our already substantial
investments into new product developments, reinforcing our customer
support services worldwide and further improving the social benefits for
our employees. We are a world leader in high reliability MEMS based
motion sensors and we intend to establish this new business centre as our
headquarters for significant design and manufacturing expansion over the
coming years.”

Energy) and safety critical (Industrial and Instrumentation)
applications. COLIBRYS’ family of motion sensors includes extremely low-
noise shock resistant seismic sensors, high stability shock tolerant
inertial and shock accelerometers, precision tilt sensors as well as high
stability DC coupled capacitive vibration sensors. COLIBRYS is based in
Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Additional information is available at

About MEMS Technology
MEMS (Micro-EIectrical-Mechanical Systems) are micro electro-mechanical
structures defined principally in silicon, glass or polymeric materials
using techniques similar to traditional integrated circuit process
technology. These devices can combine mechanical and/or optical and/or
fluidic and electrical elements to provide basic sensing or actuating
functions. These sensing or actuating elements can be combined with
discrete or monolithic microelectronic integrated circuits to create
miniature microsystems capable of providing exceptionally small,
ruggedized, low cost functionality historically not imaginable with
traditional macro mechanical technology. Day-to-day examples include tilt
and navigational / orientation sensors, microphones and altimeters found
in most of today’s mobile phones, tablets and multi-media products.
