Sika AG: SIKA APPROACHES FINMA REGARDING DISCLOSURE DUTY BREACH

Sika AG / SIKA APPROACHES FINMA REGARDING DISCLOSURE DUTY BREACH. Processed
and transmitted by NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions. The issuer is solely
responsible for the content of this announcement.
Today, Sika has submitted a notice to FINMA of a possible breach of the
disclosure duty by the Burkard heirs and Saint-Gobain. The law obliges Sika
to file such a notice with FINMA if the company has reasons to believe that a
shareholder has not complied with its disclosure duty (article 20 par. 4
Stock Exchange Act). On April 7, 2015, shortly prior to the annual general
meeting of shareholders of Sika, the Burkard heirs and Saint-Gobain disclosed
that they had dissolved their group. This was reasoned by the sale of the
privately owned Sika shares held by the Burkard family to Schenker-Winkler
Holding AG.

However, Sika takes the view that the group among the Burkard heirs,
Saint-Gobain and Schenker-Winkler Holding AG, as it was first disclosed by
them on December 11, 2014, continues to exist unchanged. The original purpose
-namely "ensuring the orderly transfer of control"of Sika to Saint-Gobain,
still exists, as the new contract seen by Sika and the numerous actions of
the contract parties since December 5, 2014 confirm.
