STMicroelectronics Reports on Stable Cash Dividend of US$0.10 for Both the 
Second and Third Quarter of 2013 to Be Proposed to the 2013
Annual General Meeting 
Quarterly Dividend Distribution to Be Decided Semi-Annually Instead
of Annually 
GENEVA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/13 --   STMicroelectronics (NYSE:
STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the
spectrum of electronics applications, has announced that its
Supervisory Board has approved the Managing Board proposal to the
forthcoming 2013 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Shareholders to
resolve on the distribution of a cash dividend of US$0.10 for the
second quarter, and of US$0.10 for the third quarter, per outstanding
share of the Company's common stock to be paid in June and September
of 2013, respectively. The amount of the proposed second and third
quarter of 2013 cash dividend is stable with respect to previous
quarterly dividend distribution. 
Furthermore, while ST's dividend distribution is currently decided on
an annual basis by the AGM, upon the proposal of the Supervisory
Board, and associated payments are made in four equal quarterly
installments, the quarterly dividend distribution will be decided
semi-annually instead of annually. 
This change will better align to the industry practice, bringing
greater flexibility to ST to achieve its goal of using available cash
to enhance its position in the market, while at the same time
managing its cash resources to continue to reward its shareholders
for their trust in the Company. 
The fourth quarter 2013 and first quarter 2014 dividends will be
decided at a Shareholders Meeting to be held during the fourth
quarter of 2013.
