Computershare Switzerland is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to collaborate with Sandoz.

At the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 15 September 2023, the intended 100% spin-off of Sandoz was approved by Novartis shareholders.

On 4 October 2023, Sandoz was officially spun-off from Novartis and listed on SIX (ticker "SDZ"). The spin-off was executed by distributing 1 Sandoz share for every 5 Novartis shares as a dividend in kind.

We provided successful support to Sandoz throughout the preparatory phase and during the spin-off process. Moving forward, we will assume responsibility for managing the share register as well as or-ganizing and conducting their general meetings. The initial General Meeting of Sandoz is scheduled to take place in spring 2024.

Sandoz Group Ltd, headquartered in Rotkreuz, is the global leader in generic pharmaceuticals and bio-similar medical products.

The purpose of the spin-off was to strategically position Novartis and Sandoz as independent listed com-panies, enabling them to capitalize on significant growth opportunities within their respective fields and focus their resources on their individual businesses and strategic priorities.

We extend our sincere gratitude to all parties involved in this project.
