TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today announced that it has taken up and paid for 22,435,897 subordinate voting shares ("Shares") at a price of US$7.80 per Share (the "Purchase Price") under Celestica's "modified Dutch auction" substantial issuer bid to purchase for cancellation up to US$175,000,000 of its Shares (the "Offer").

The Shares purchased under the Offer represent approximately 12.05% of the Shares issued and outstanding as of December 3, 2012.  After giving effect to the Offer, as of that date, Celestica had 163,792,303 subordinate voting shares and 18,946,368 multiple voting shares issued and outstanding.
