Note: "The Company was created by the merger of Sandoz
AG and CIBA-Geigy AG (the "Merger") in December
1996. Prior to the Merger, Sandoz AG and CIBA-Geigy AG were
each global participants in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical
industries. The predecessor companies of the Company merged
to realize sales, cost and cross-sector synergies, and to
create a combined entity with the resources and ability to
compete in the long term in an increasingly competitive global
environment. The Boards of the Company and AstraZeneca announced
on December 2, 1999, that they each agreed to spin off and
merge Novartis’ Crop Protection and Seeds businesses and Zeneca
Agrochemicals to create the world’s first dedicated agribusiness
company with pro forma combined sales in 1998 of approximately
$7.9 billion. The new company will be named Syngenta AG ("Syngenta"),
headquartered in Basel, Switzerland (p 5)...
In Crop Protection, the major production sites for the active
ingredients are located in India, Switzerland, the UK and
the U.S., with the major production sites for formulation
and packaging in Brazil, China, France, South Korea, Switzerland
and the U.S. (p 36)... Agribusiness. On September 1, 1998,
Novartis acquired a production plant and related operating
assets from Oriental Chemicals Industries, South Korea for
