  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, April 22, 2013 - 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.
