ABB’s Dividend Access Facility 2013

Zurich, Switzerland, March 25, 2013 – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, is making a facility available for shareholders tax-resident in Sweden, holding shares of ABB Ltd registered with Euroclear Sweden, that allows them to receive their dividend relating to those shares in Swedish Kronor. The facility also allows them to receive their dividend without deduction of Swiss withholding tax consistent with dividend payments to other shareholders.

Such shareholders can apply to take part in the dividend access facility (DAF) starting on March 25 through April 15, 2013. Current shareholders who applied for ABB’s last DAF in 2012 will be registered automatically for the 2013 DAF.

Assuming that shareholders approve the dividend of CHF0.68 per share at ABB’s annual general meeting on April 25, 2013 the dividend payment date under the DAF is expected to be May 7, 2013.

The dividend will be paid in Swedish kronor through Euroclear Sweden and will correspond to the dividend that ABB Ltd pays in Swiss francs (the CHF/SEK exchange rate for the dividend will be determined on April 26, 2013). The dividend will be taxed according to the Swedish tax rules valid for each person or entity.
