Syngenta launches second trading line on SIX Swiss Exchange for the repurchase of registered shares 

Basel, Switzerland, July 24, 2013 

On April 24, 2012 the Annual General Meeting of Syngenta AG authorized the Syngenta Board of Directors to repurchase registered shares under a new share repurchase program up to a maximum value of 10% of the company's share capital, for the purpose of capital reduction.

On the basis of this authorization, Syngenta is establishing a second trading line on the SIX Swiss Exchange, through which a maximum of 9,312,614 registered shares, each with a face value of CHF 0.10, can be repurchased. Syngenta has no plans at present to make full use of the maximum repurchase potential but wishes to secure flexibility for tactical share repurchase transactions.

The share repurchase can take place through the second trading line on the SIX Swiss Exchange between July 25, 2013 and July 22, 2016.
