Date:7/14/2010

BASEL, Switzerland, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC), a US subsidiary of Novartis AG, and Sanford Wittels & Heisler, LLP, Counsel to the Plaintiffs and the Class, have announced an amicable end to their litigation. Today the parties filed papers in the Southern District of New York memorializing a settlement agreement including up to USD 152.5 million in payments to eligible class members and NPC's funding, over three years, of improvements to policies and programs valued at an estimated USD 22.5 million.  

While the company maintains that the alleged behavior described during the trial is not systemic, NPC has agreed with the Plaintiffs to end the ongoing proceedings and make monetary payments to eligible class members for back-pay and compensatory damages in the amount of up to USD152.5 million.  "While we believe that there was not systemic discrimination at NPC, the trial revealed that some of our associates had experiences influenced by managerial behavior inconsistent with our values" said Joe Jimenez, CEO of Novartis AG. "As a company we are now even more strongly resolved to ensure that all our employees act and behave in accordance with our corporate values. We aspire to be a leader in diversity and inclusion, and I am committed to implementing decisive measures to ensure that we act in accordance with our values."

"Novartis has agreed to a momentous settlement," explained David Sanford, lead counsel for the Plaintiffs.  "The terms of this agreement allow for full compensation of both former and current female field force employee
