Syngenta holds Annual General Meeting

 
At the Annual General Meeting of Syngenta AG on April 24, 2012, the 1,003 shareholders representing 33.61% of the total shares approved all the motions proposed by the Board of Directors.

Shareholders approved a dividend of CHF 8.00 per share for the business year 2011, an increase of 14% over the previous year.

Shareholders also approved a reduction of share capital to CHF 9,312,614.90 through the cancellation of the 636,750 shares repurchased by the Company in 2011 within the scope of the approved repurchase program.

Pierre Landolt and Rolf Watter stepped down from the Board, having completed their term of office. Syngenta Chairman Martin Taylor said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank both for their outstanding contribution to the Company. Their considerable experience and sound guidance have been instrumental in our collective success.”

Vinita Bali, Managing Director & CEO of Britannia Industries, Gunnar Brock, Chairman of Stora Enso, Mölnlycke Health Care and Rolling Optics, and Michel Demaré, Chief Financial Officer of ABB, were elected as new members of the Board of Directors.

Stefan Borgas, Peggy Bruzelius, David Lawrence and Jürg Witmer were re-elected to the Board. Following a recent decision of the Board of Directors, Jürg Witmer was confirmed as Vice Chairman of the Syngenta Board of Directors.
