Muttenz, February 25, 2016 - Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals,
announced today that its Board of Directors will propose the election of
Eveline Saupper, Claudia Suessmuth Dyckerhoff and Peter Steiner to the Board
of Directors, subject to the approval of the Annual General Meeting of
Clariant Ltd taking place on April 21, 2016.

With the addition of the suggested new members, Clariant will expand its Board
of Directors from nine to 10 members while replacing Peter R. Isler and
Dominik Koechlin. Peter Isler,a member of Clariant's Board of Directors since
2004, has reached the statutory maximum age for board members of 70 and will

Rudolf Wehrli, Chairman of the Board said: "On behalf of the Board of
Directors, the Executive Committee and all our employees, I'd like to
sincerely thank Peter Isler for his valuable contribution during all the
years, especially for his achievements as Chairman and longstanding member of
the Audit Committee, for his contribution as a member of the Chairman's
Committee as well as lately the Compensation Committee. At the same time we
remember with sorrow Dominik Koechlin, who was an esteemed colleague and
passionate entrepreneur.

We are very pleased that, with Eveline Saupper, Claudia Suessmuth Dyckerhoff
and Peter Steiner, when elected by our shareholders, we will add further
experienced advice and know-how to our Board of Directors, especially in the
fields of Legal, Tax, and Asian markets."
