Dividend proposal for 2007

The Board of Directors has proposed a dividend payment of CHF 1.60 per share for 2007, a 19% increase from the dividend of CHF 1.35 per share in 2006. Shareholders will vote on this proposal at the next Annual General Meeting on February 26, 2008. This proposal marks the eleventh consecutive year of a higher dividend payout since the creation of Novartis in December 1996. If approved by shareholders, dividends paid for 2007 on outstanding shares are expected to total approximately USD 3.2 billion. The dividend payout ratio for 2007 will be 49% of the Group’s net income from continuing operations. Based on the year-end 2007 share price of CHF 62.10, the dividend yield is 2.6% compared to 1.9% in 2006. The payment date for the 2007 dividend is set for February 29, 2008. All issued shares are dividend bearing, with the exception of 272.7 million treasury shares.
