Celestica Announces the Completion of its US$175 million Substantial Issuer Bid

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.

As the Offer was oversubscribed, successfully tendering shareholders had approximately 89.95% of their Shares purchased by Celestica, except that "odd lot" tenders were not subject to pro-ration.  Any Shares tendered and not purchased will be returned to shareholders promptly by Computershare Investor Services Inc., as depositary for the Offer (the "Depositary").

Payment and settlement of the purchased Shares will be effected to registered shareholders by the Depositary in accordance with the Offer.

Scotia Capital Inc. and Scotia Capital (USA) Inc. acted as dealer managers in connection with the Offer in Canada and the United States, respectively.

Celestica is authorized to purchase additional Shares from time to time pursuant to its normal course issuer bid, but under U.S. securities laws no such additional purchases may be made prior to December 18, 2012.
