The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Merck Reaches Agreement on Recommended Cash Offer for AZ Electronic Materials to Strengthen Performance Materials Division Merck, a global pharmaceutical, chemical and life science company, today announced an agreement with the Board of Directors of AZ Electronic Materials (AZ) regarding a recommended cash offer for the entire share capital of AZ to further expand Merck's materials and specialty chemicals business by adding a globally leading premium supplier of high-tech materials for the electronics industry. According to the terms of the agreement, Merck is offering GBpence 403.5 per share of AZ in cash, valuing AZ at around GBP 1.6 billion (around EUR 1.9 billion). The offer represents a premium of around 41% over the 3-month volume-weighted average share price of AZ. The Board of Directors of AZ intends to recommend that the company's shareholders accept the offer and the directors have irrevocably undertaken to tender their own shares (representing approximately 0.7% of the issued share capital of AZ). The acquisition will be 100 percent financed by existing cash resources. The successful completion of the transaction is among others conditional upon antitrust clearance as well as a minimum acceptance level of 95% of the share capital. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News: IMPORTANT NOTE NOT FOR PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE (IN WHOLE OR IN PART) DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IN, INTO OR FROM CANADA, AUSTRALIA OR JAPAN OR IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION This ad hoc announcement is not intended to, and does not, constitute or form part of any offer, invitation or the solicitation of an offer to purchase, otherwise acquire, subscribe for, sell or otherwise dispose of any securities, or the solicitation of any vote or approval in any jurisdiction, pursuant to the Offer or otherwise.
