Celestica CEO enters automatic securities disposition plan

TORONTO, April 26 /CNW/ - Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today announced that Craig Muhlhauser, President & Chief Executive Officer, has entered into an automatic securities disposition plan for the sale of up to 1,496,147 Subordinate Voting Shares between May 10, 2010 and April 29, 2011. The shares represent approximately thirty-five per cent of Mr. Muhlhauser's total vested and unvested equity at target performance levels. (The percentage of shares being sold was incorrectly reported in a press release issued April 22, 2010.)

Sales will be conducted by an independent broker pursuant to pre-determined criteria on a monthly basis and effected in part through the exercise of stock options previously granted to Mr. Muhlhauser.

In accordance with applicable Canadian provincial and U.S. securities laws, including Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the plan allows for the disposition of Subordinate Voting Shares and the related exercise of options on a pre-determined, automatic basis regardless of whether trading restrictions are in place, including whether Mr. Muhlhauser subsequently receives material non-public information regarding Celestica. Mr. Muhlhauser is not permitted to revoke or rescind the plan and, subject to limited exceptions, is not permitted to modify or amend the plan. Dispositions pursuant to the plan will be reported in accordance with applicable securities laws.
