Sika AG / SIKA STRENGTHENS ITS PRESENCE IN ASIA PACIFIC. Processed and
transmitted by NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions. The issuer is solely
responsible for the content of this announcement.
As part of its growth strategy,
Sika is further expanding its presence in the Asia Pacific region by founding
a subsidiary company in Myanmar and opening a new production plant in Sri
Lanka. This will help the company to further utilize market potential and
consolidate its strong position in one of the most important growth regions.

The foundation of Sika Myanmar represents another milestone in the build-up of
operations in emerging markets. Sika has been supplying the Myanmar market
with high-quality products imported from neighbouring countries for many
years. With its own subsidiary Sika is now ideally positioned to serve the
fast growing construction sector and benefit from the extensive local
investments in infrastructure. With the new company in Myanmar, Sika now has
subsidiaries in 91 countries around the world.

In a further development of its growth strategy, Sika is also expanding its
presence in Sri Lanka where it has opened a new concrete admixture plant in
Ekala. The factory will produce a range of high-end additives for the
construction industry, allowing Sika to supply the local market directly and
be part of the dynamic development of the construction activities in the
country.

Sika's growth in emerging markets is an important part of the overall business
strategy to strengthen supply chains and improve customer access around the
world, resulting in locally available, high quality products for the
construction industry.
