Heinz Imhof, Chairman, said:
The results achieved in 2004 amply demonstrate the success of the Syngenta strategy and strength of the product portfolio, which have allowed the company to generate significant, profitable growth. They also bear witness to the hard work and determination of our employees in the first four years of the companys life. Our commitment to create value for our shareholders is further reinforced by the announcement of an enhanced cash return program.
