ASML Confirms Completion of the Synthetic Buyback

ASML Holding NV (NASDAQ:ASML)(Amsterdam:ASML) today announces that it has completed the Synthetic Buyback which forms part of ASML’s Customer Co-Investment Program announced on 9 July 2012.

With the execution of the Synthetic Buyback, ASML has made a EUR 3.85 billion cash capital repayment to its shareholders (other than the three participating customers in the Customer Co-Investment Program) and has reduced the number of issued shares by 96.566.124 as a result of the reverse stock split. This is effectively equivalent to ASML buying back the shares issued to the participating customers in the Customer Co-Investment Program at a price of EUR 39.91 per share, which is the per share price paid by those participating customers.

About ASML’s Customer Co-Investment Program

Three ASML customers – Intel, TSMC and Samsung – agreed to contribute EUR 1.38 billion to ASML's research and development of next-generation lithography technologies over five years, specifically aimed at accelerating EUV lithography and 450mm lithography development. As part of the Customer Co-Investment Program, but separate from the R&D contribution, ASML received EUR 3.85 billion for issuing shares to the three participating customers. This cash was returned to shareholders (excluding participating customers) via a Synthetic Buyback, which included a reverse stock split to avoid dilution (on an earnings per share basis) as a result of the Customer Co-Investment Program. More details can be found at www.asml.com/cip.
