    Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences Reach New Licensing Agreement on Roundup Ready 2 Yield(R) Soybean TechnologyExpands Previous License, Will Broaden Farmer Access and Experience With Monsanto's Next-Generation Herbicide-Tolerance Trait That Offers Higher Yield Opportunity

    ST. LOUIS, June 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, the range of farmers' future seed choices broadened as Monsanto Company granted a new royalty-bearing, Roundup Ready 2 Yield® license to Dow AgroSciences. The new agreement expands Dow AgroSciences' trait stacking and existing licensing rights across its soybean seed brands and licensing partners.

    "Through our collaborative relationship with Dow AgroSciences, more farmers will be able to experience the higher yield opportunity of Roundup Ready 2 Yield in new trait combinations and soybean brands they prefer," said Brett Begemann, Monsanto's executive vice president of global seeds and traits. "This agreement is further validation that the Roundup Ready 2 Yield platform is a solid foundation for industry-leading soybean performance."

    U.S. farmers are experiencing the benefits of the Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean trait in more than 70 varieties across multiple brands on 6 million acres this year.

    "Our experience in working with the trait gives us the confidence to expand this licensing agreement," said Antonio Galindez, president and chief executive officer of Dow AgroSciences. "The trait offers our farmer customers the high yield opportunity they look for in soybean seeds, and we're excited about the future trait combinations we'll be able to offer our customers in the future to help them produce more, and to do it more efficiently."

    Under the agreement: -- Monsanto grants Dow AgroSciences a non-exclusive, royalty-bearing license in the United States to develop, produce, sell and sublicense seed and germplasm with Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology. -- Dow AgroSciences also receives an option to license the Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology in other territories where Monsanto plans to commercialize this technology, after Monsanto has obtained regulatory approval in such countries, including key soybean producing countries like Brazil. -- Dow AgroSciences gains the rights to stack Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology with other biotechnology traits. -- Dow AgroSciences also gains the rights to out license Dow AgroSciences' germplasm containing Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology, alone or in stacks, to third parties that hold Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield licenses from Monsanto. -- Additional specific details of the agreement were not disclosed.

    "We're pleased that we were able to again work with Dow AgroSciences to put farmers first," said Begemann. "We are confident that this new agreement will be as successful as we have been with our SmartStax(TM) corn collaboration. It is yet another example of Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences reaching an agreement to provide farmers tremendous choice today and in the seasons ahead."

    Sonic to Acquire DivXCombination Creates Digital Video Delivery Powerhouse; Streamlines "Over the Top" Distribution of Hollywood Movies

    NOVATO, Calif. and SAN DIEGO, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sonic Solutions® and DivX, Inc. today jointly announced that they have signed a definitive merger agreement for Sonic Solutions to acquire DivX, Inc., a leading digital media company, based in San Diego, California. Under the terms of the agreement, approved by the boards of directors of both companies, Sonic would acquire all the outstanding shares of DivX and merge DivX operations into those of Sonic. DivX stockholders would receive a combination of cash and stock equal to $3.75 in cash and 0.514 shares of Sonic common stock for each share of DivX they hold. The acquisition, which is expected to close in September 2010, is subject to approval of the shareholders of both companies as well as applicable regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.

    For more than 20 years, Sonic has been the leader in developing technologies for the preparation and delivery of entertainment content in popular formats -- CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc and most recently Internet delivery of video. The acquisition of DivX is expected to advance Sonic's mission to deliver technology that makes it easy and convenient for retailers, online services, Hollywood studios, and manufacturers of CE and mobile devices to distribute premium digital video content over the Internet. DivX is expected to enable Sonic to deepen and broaden the technology it offers for Internet-based video delivery and expand its relationships with leading retailers and consumer electronics manufacturers.

    DivX is a leading digital media company that enables consumers to enjoy a high-quality video experience across any kind of device. The DivX brand is recognized worldwide and supported by a community of millions of consumers. DivX technology -- encoders for formatting video, decoders for playback, and digital rights management (DRM) for content protection -- resides on over 300 million devices shipped into the global market from all major CE manufacturers including over 8,500 models of digital televisions, DVD and Blu-ray Disc players, and over 80 different mobile handsets. In addition, the DivX web properties enjoy more than 12 million unique visits each month.

    Sonic believes that the acquisition of DivX will provide a number of key benefits:

    -- The acquisition is expected to be accretive to Sonic's shareholders, potentially doubling fiscal year 2012 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis. -- The DivX technologies are expected to give Sonic a more extensive solution for Internet video delivery including the dominant tools for content preparation in "the cloud," video playback, and Hollywood-approved DRM. -- DivX is expected to provide leverage to Sonic's strategy of consumer electronics deployment - the DivX player and DRM is deployed in products from more than 150 different CE manufacturers worldwide on millions of devices. -- The DivX brand is known worldwide as an indicator of compatibility, quality, and ease of use.

    Overall, the combination of DivX technology, capabilities, and market position is expected to advance Sonic's mission: to make publishing, delivery, and enjoyment of movies over the Internet as easy and widespread as DVD delivery is today.

    "Our studio, storefront, and consumer electronics partners agree: they want a clear and efficient path to deliver premium content to their customers," said Dave Habiger, president and CEO of Sonic Solutions. "The combination of Sonic and DivX promises to be the foremost provider of platforms, tools, and technologies for the efficient delivery of premium video entertainment to virtually any type of consumer electronics device. We expect DivX's deep technology and broad deployment in the CE and mobile areas to give us significant leverage as we expand and enhance our RoxioNow premium entertainment platform."

    "Sonic and DivX are both market leaders in digital media and share similar visions about a better media future for consumers," stated Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX. "We also share similar cultures and both recognize the tremendous market opportunity that lies ahead for Internet video services. By combining our products, technologies, partnerships, and talented employees, we immediately create a complete end-to-end delivery platform for digital media, with expanded reach and capacity, at a perfect time to capitalize on the market's rapid development. With the acquisition of DivX, Sonic should be extremely well positioned to serve existing customers, attract new partners, and increase our market presence and potential."

    The current Sonic management team (including Dave Habiger, Clay Leighton, Paul Norris, Mark Ely, and Matt DiMaria) will lead the combined company, augmented with key managers and executives from DivX. Kevin Hell, DivX's chief executive officer, Dan Halvorson, DivX's chief financial officer and executive vice president, operations, and David Richter, DivX's executive vice president, business & legal affairs and general counsel, will be cooperating closely with the Sonic team to close the transaction and integrate the companies, but will not continue in the combined company in their current positions. Following completion of the merger, DivX stockholders will own approximately 35% of the combined company's capital stock. Sonic expects to add two members of the DivX board of directors, to be named later, to its board at the closing of the transaction.

    Oppenheimer & Co. is acting as DivX's exclusive financial advisor in the transaction.

    Sonic Earnings Preview and Announcement

    As previously announced, Sonic plans to release its financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full year (ending March 31, 2010) on Thursday, June 3. In order to facilitate discussion with investors on the impact of the DivX merger, Sonic is announcing today the following key points from its upcoming earnings announcement:

    For the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2010, Sonic recorded $26.4 million in revenue, $1.2 million in net income or $0.04 per fully diluted share on a GAAP basis. Sonic expects that, for the first quarter of the 2011 fiscal year (the quarter ending June 30, 2010), it will generate approximately $25.0 million in revenue.

    Shareholders and investors interested in more detail are encouraged to review the announcement Sonic will make tomorrow, as well as Sonic's Annual Report on Form 10-K, which it plans to file shortly. In light of today's announcement, Sonic will not be hosting its previously scheduled earnings conference call on June 3, and instead encourages participation in the following joint conference call.

    Silver Wheaton announces amended silver purchase agreement in conjunction with Goldcorp's proposed sale of the San Dimas mineTSX: SLW NYSE: SLW

    VANCOUVER, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Silver Wheaton Corp. ("Silver Wheaton" or the "Company") (TSX, NYSE:SLW) announces that it has agreed to amend its silver purchase agreement relating to the San Dimas mine, in conjunction with Goldcorp Inc.'s ("Goldcorp") proposed sale of the mine to Mala Noche Resources Corp. ("Mala Noche"). Under the terms of a binding letter agreement between Mala Noche and Goldcorp ("the Purchase Agreement"), effective June 2, 2010, Mala Noche has agreed to purchase Goldcorp's San Dimas mine ("San Dimas"), located in Mexico, for total consideration of US$500 million, subject to a number of conditions, including the completion of a proposed equity financing by Mala Noche to raise net proceeds of a minimum of US$350 million in cash (see Goldcorp and Mala Noche press releases dated June 2, 2010).

    Upon closing of the Purchase Agreement, Mala Noche is expected to have a strong balance sheet, including over US$50 million in working capital and low debt levels. In addition, Goldcorp will be a major shareholder of Mala Noche, owning approximately 30% of its issued and outstanding shares, and has agreed to maintain its shareholding for a minimum of three years.

    Mr. Eduardo Luna, Mala Noche's Executive Vice President and President-Mexico, will once again play a significant role in overseeing the operations at San Dimas. From 1991 to 2007, Mr. Luna was the President of Luismin, S.A. de C.V., the owner and operator of San Dimas. During the five-year period prior to his 2007 resignation, the mine achieved its best production performance over its greater than 100 year history. Mr. Joseph Conway has also been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Mala Noche. As former Chief Executive Officer of Iamgold Corporation, Mr. Conway oversaw the growth of that company into one of Canada's leading intermediate gold producers.

    Under the terms of Silver Wheaton's silver purchase agreement relating to San Dimas, Silver Wheaton must approve the transaction and has agreed to do so, subject to the successful closing of the Purchase Agreement and the following amendments to the silver purchase agreement:

    - The term of the silver purchase agreement, which currently terminates in 2029, will be increased to life-of-mine; - During the first four years following closing, Mala Noche will deliver to Silver Wheaton a per annum amount equal to the first 3.5 million ounces of payable silver produced at San Dimas and 50% of any excess, plus Silver Wheaton will receive an additional 1.5 million ounces of silver per annum to be delivered by Goldcorp; - Beginning in the fifth year after closing, Mala Noche will deliver to Silver Wheaton a per annum amount equal to the first six million ounces of payable silver produced at San Dimas and 50% of any excess; - Goldcorp will continue to guarantee: i. The delivery by Mala Noche of all silver produced and owing to Silver Wheaton, until 2029; and, ii. A payment of US$0.50/oz for any shortfall below 220 million cumulative silver ounces delivered to Silver Wheaton by the end of 2031. - Mala Noche will provide Silver Wheaton with a right of first refusal on any metal stream or similar transaction it enters into; and, - Silver Wheaton will obtain an increased security package over the properties and assets of Mala Noche.

    "Eduardo Luna's re-involvement in the operations at San Dimas is very positive for both the mine and Silver Wheaton," said Peter Barnes, Chief Executive Officer of Silver Wheaton. "Under his past leadership, San Dimas had its best production results in the mine's significant operating history and, as a core asset for Mala Noche, its management will be focused on maximizing shareholder value by increasing production levels at this low-cost mine."

    "In addition, amending the silver purchase agreement from a fixed term to life-of-mine allows our shareholders to continue benefiting from San Dimas' excellent track record of exploration success. Overall, we feel the amended silver purchase agreement very effectively aligns Mala Noche's interests with Silver Wheaton's, incentivizing them to increase silver production to the benefit of both parties."

    About San Dimas

    San Dimas has been in continuous production for well over 100 years and operates in the lowest cost quartile of gold-silver producers in the world. Over the substantial mine life to date, the operating team at San Dimas has demonstrated an exceptional track-record of converting resources into reserves and the mine continues to exhibit excellent exploration upside.

    Current exploration programs at San Dimas are focused on locating the western extension of the Central Block region, where the majority of mining currently takes place. These programs met with considerable success late in 2009, and continue into 2010, positioning the mine for a new phase of long-term production growth.

    About Silver Wheaton

    Silver Wheaton is the largest silver streaming company in the world. Forecast 2010 production, based upon its current agreements, is 22.2 million ounces of silver and 20,000 ounces of gold, for total production of 23.5 million silver equivalent ounces. By 2013, annual production is anticipated to increase significantly to approximately 38 million ounces of silver and 59,000 ounces of gold, for total production of over 40 million silver equivalent ounces. This growth is driven by the Company's portfolio of world-class assets, including silver streams on Goldcorp's Penasquito mine and Barrick's Pascua-Lama project.

As former Chief Executive Officer of Iamgold Corporation, Mr. Conway oversaw the growth of that company into one of Canada's leading intermediate gold producers.

    Under the terms of Silver Wheaton's silver purchase agreement relating to San Dimas, Silver Wheaton must approve the transaction and has agreed to do so, subject to the successful closing of the Purchase Agreement and the following amendments to the silver purchase agreement:

    - The term of the silver purchase agreement, which currently terminates in 2029, will be increased to life-of-mine; - During the first four years following closing, Mala Noche will deliver to Silver Wheaton a per annum amount equal to the first 3.5 million ounces of payable silver produced at San Dimas and 50% of any excess, plus Silver Wheaton will receive an additional 1.5 million ounces of silver per annum to be delivered by Goldcorp; - Beginning in the fifth year after closing, Mala Noche will deliver to Silver Wheaton a per annum amount equal to the first six million ounces of payable silver produced at San Dimas and 50% of any excess; - Goldcorp will continue to guarantee: i. The delivery by Mala Noche of all silver produced and owing to Silver Wheaton, until 2029; and, ii. A payment of US$0.50/oz for any shortfall below 220 million cumulative silver ounces delivered to Silver Wheaton by the end of 2031. - Mala Noche will provide Silver Wheaton with a right of first refusal on any metal stream or similar transaction it enters into; and, - Silver Wheaton will obtain an increased security package over the properties and assets of Mala Noche.

    "Eduardo Luna's re-involvement in the operations at San Dimas is very positive for both the mine and Silver Wheaton," said Peter Barnes, Chief Executive Officer of Silver Wheaton. "Under his past leadership, San Dimas had its best production results in the mine's significant operating history and, as a core asset for Mala Noche, its management will be focused on maximizing shareholder value by increasing production levels at this low-cost mine."

    "In addition, amending the silver purchase agreement from a fixed term to life-of-mine allows our shareholders to continue benefiting from San Dimas' excellent track record of exploration success. Overall, we feel the amended silver purchase agreement very effectively aligns Mala Noche's interests with Silver Wheaton's, incentivizing them to increase silver production to the benefit of both parties."

    About San Dimas

    San Dimas has been in continuous production for well over 100 years and operates in the lowest cost quartile of gold-silver producers in the world. Over the substantial mine life to date, the operating team at San Dimas has demonstrated an exceptional track-record of converting resources into reserves and the mine continues to exhibit excellent exploration upside.

    Current exploration programs at San Dimas are focused on locating the western extension of the Central Block region, where the majority of mining currently takes place. These programs met with considerable success late in 2009, and continue into 2010, positioning the mine for a new phase of long-term production growth.

    About Silver Wheaton

    Silver Wheaton is the largest silver streaming company in the world. Forecast 2010 production, based upon its current agreements, is 22.2 million ounces of silver and 20,000 ounces of gold, for total production of 23.5 million silver equivalent ounces. By 2013, annual production is anticipated to increase significantly to approximately 38 million ounces of silver and 59,000 ounces of gold, for total production of over 40 million silver equivalent ounces. This growth is driven by the Company's portfolio of world-class assets, including silver streams on Goldcorp's Penasquito mine and Barrick's Pascua-Lama project.

    Amerigon Heated and Ventilated Seat System Selected as Option for All-New 2011 Hyundai Tucson

    NORTHVILLE, Mich., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amerigon Incorporated , a leader in developing and marketing products based on advanced thermoelectric (TE) technologies, announced today that its proprietary heated and ventilated seat system will be offered as an option on the front seats of the all-new 2011 Hyundai Tucson,

    Hyundai characterizes the Tucson as a Compact Utility Vehicle (CUV) combining the rugged utility of a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) with the maneuverability and refinement of a car.

    "We have worked very closely with Hyundai engineers and are pleased Hyundai has selected our heated and ventilated seat system for the new Tucson," said Amerigon President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker.

    "We believe our heated and ventilated seat systems are an important extension of our product line, especially for automotive manufacturers such as Hyundai who are interested in providing consumers with increased levels of luxury and comfort in mid-range vehicles," Coker added.

    Other Hyundai vehicles featuring Amerigon's proprietary Climate Control Seat® (CCS®) system which delivers actively controlled heated or cooled air to a seat occupant include the Hyundai Equus and Hyundai Genesis.

    About the Amerigon Heated and Ventilated Seat System

    The Amerigon heated and ventilated seat system combines passive cooling or ventilation with active heating. For cooler environments or more economical vehicle lines, a ventilated seat may be a viable solution, bringing ambient cabin air to the surface instead of the "cooled" air produced by the thermoelectric technology. In the cooling mode, the heater is turned off and the fan provides ambient cabin air to the seat surface. Amerigon's heated and ventilated seat system fits within the same envelope as the active CCS system, so multiple Amerigon applications can be installed within or across various vehicle platforms.

    About Amerigon

    Amerigon develops products based on its advanced, proprietary, efficient thermoelectric (TE) technologies for a wide range of global markets and heating and cooling applications. The Company's current principal product is its proprietary Climate Control Seat® (CCS®) system, a solid-state, TE-based system that permits drivers and passengers of vehicles to individually and actively control the heating and cooling of their respective seats to ensure maximum year-round comfort. CCS, which is the only system of its type on the market today, uses no CFCs or other environmentally sensitive coolants. Amerigon maintains sales and technical support centers in Southern California, Detroit, Japan, Germany, England and Korea. For more information, visit http://www.amerigon.com/.

    Certain matters discussed in this release are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results may be different. Important factors that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from its expectations in this release are risks that sales may not significantly increase, additional financing, if necessary, may not be available, new competitors may arise and adverse conditions in the automotive industry may negatively affect its results. The liquidity and trading price of its common stock may be negatively affected by these and other factors. Please also refer to Amerigon's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including, but not limited to, its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2010, and its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.

    Most Reliable Wireless Network Just Got Better for Customers in Northern Michigan$750,000 Integration of Verizon Wireless' and Alltel's Networks Delivers Stronger Coverage in Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, Kalkaska and Grand Traverse Counties

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless today announced it has completed a $750,000 integration of its network with that of Alltel across much of northern Michigan, including Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, Kalkaska and Grand Traverse counties, to provide customers with clearer reception, fewer dropped calls and more coverage, including stronger in-building coverage.

    Verizon Wireless' voice network and high-speed 3G data network (that lets customers rely on their phones for just about everything other than making calls) combined with that of Alltel creates the largest wireless network footprint in the United States. The integration enables more customers to use their wireless phones concurrently to make calls; send and receive email and text, picture and video messages; access the Internet; view high-quality videos; and download music, games and ringtones.

    "The addition of Alltel's network to the Verizon Wireless network provides our customers with unmatched coverage across northern Michigan," said Greg Haller, president-Michigan/Indiana/Kentucky Region, Verizon Wireless.

We are committed to continuing to perfect our network so that our customers in Michigan know they can depend on us every time they use their wireless devices."

    Verizon Wireless has been preparing to integrate Alltel's network since completing its purchase of the company more than a year ago. Alltel's 3G data network has been upgraded to the latest revision of wireless broadband technology to enable faster delivery of data services, including email and browsing the Internet.

    Verizon Wireless has invested more than $59 billion since it was formed--$5.7 billion on average every year--to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services. Since the company was formed in 2000, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.4 billion on improvements to its wireless network in Michigan.

    One Million Downloads of Realtor.com iPhone App in Five MonthsiPhone Users Say iLOVE Realtor.com App With Overwhelming Usage and Download Response

    CAMPBELL, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- In five short months, iPhone users have downloaded the Realtor.com® Real Estate Search iPhone application one million times to search the #1 homes for sale website, twice as many downloads as the next closest competitor in the same time period (1). The Realtor.com iPhone app, launched on January 13, 2010, by Move, Inc., the leader in online real estate, has been named one of four great iPhone apps by Money Magazine.

    Since the January 2010 launch, iPhone users have tapped into the Realtor.com website through the Realtor.com iPhone app on average of two times per day as they search for local properties and connections to Realtors®. In April 2010, the number of iPhone users searching for real estate with the Realtor.com iPhone app was four times higher than a close competitor (2).

    The Realtor.com Real Estate Search application is categorized as a Lifestyle Application in the Apple® iTune® store. In the past five months, while the average minutes per session of the average iTunes Lifestyle application is five to six minutes (3) , the average minutes per session of consumers using the Realtor.com Real Estate Search iPhone application surpasses 16 minutes.

    Today, Realtor.com also announced several new features now available on the Realtor.com Real Estate Search application including the 'Area Scout' feature and several new search features such as waterfront, garage, multi-story, and more.

    "Area Scout" combines iPhone GPS capabilities with automated search features delivered by the Realtor.com iPhone app to provide automatically updated search results on the go. As a result, house hunters can now quickly find listings and obtain detailed features such as proximity to major roadways, average price per square foot, average prices of homes nearby, and average home sizes in the area in the Map View feature. To access 'Area Scout,' users simply perform a Nearby Search, switch to the Map View and press the 'Area Scout' button in the bottom right-hand corner, and the feature is up and running.

    "We're very pleased with the extraordinary response buyers, sellers and real estate professionals across the country have had to the Realtor.com Real Estate Search iPhone app," said Steve Berkowitz, chief executive officer of Move, Inc., operator of Realtor.com. "With more than 7.5 million homes viewed on the Realtor.com iPhone app every month since our launch in January 2010, and thousands of calls and emails to Realtors from consumers via the app each month, our iPhone app is clearly connecting buyers with Realtors as they search for real estate properties and information."

    Berkowitz continues by explaining that while site traffic and engagement to Realtor.com is historically strongest during weekdays (4), consumer usage of the Realtor.com Real Estate Search app peaks on weekends by approximately 37 percent. To help Realtor customers market their brands and client properties on the Realtor.com iPhone app, the company offers premium listing advertising opportunities on Listing Detail Pages that display individual homes for sale.

    The free Realtor.com Real Estate Search iPhone app is compatible with iPhone OS 3.0 or higher and the iPod Touch, and can be downloaded at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/real-estate-search/id336698281?mt=8 or by going to a consumer information page on Realtor.com at http://www.realtor.com/iphone?source=a27508.

    Zimmer Highlights Advancements in Reconstructive and Trauma Offerings at 11th EFORT Congress in Madrid, Spain

    MADRID, June 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Clinical Success and Product Innovations Headline Zimmer Presentation Schedule

    Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZMH; SIX: ZMH), a leader in musculoskeletal care, today announced its presentation schedule for the 11th annual EFORT (European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology) Congress, highlighting advancements in its Reconstructive and Trauma offerings. Zimmer will be presenting three side events throughout the EFORT Congress to be held June 2-5, 2010 in Madrid, Spain.

    "Recon Innovations in the New Decade" will introduce European surgeons to the latest Zimmer Reconstructive products. The discussion will focus on: Trabecular Metal(TM) Technology in Knee revisions; the Fitmore(R) Hip Stem, whose three different stem families and four offset options provide for a more accurate reconstruction of patient anatomy; and a presentation focused on Shoulder Systems. This session will be held on June 2.

    On June 3, "Integrated Taper Cup Systems" will include a discussion of the recently launched Allofit(R) IT, Continuum(TM) and Trilogy(R) IT Acetabular Systems, all of which incorporate proven fixation technologies and an integrated taper design to give surgeons a wide range of advanced bearing options to better match the demands of individual patients.

    Zimmer's third presentation, "Zimmer Natural Nail," will introduce attendees to the Zimmer(R) Natural Nail(TM) System through a demonstration and discussion. The Zimmer Natural Nail System is a next-generation line of intramedullary nails, screws, instruments and other associated implants designed to provide stable fixation for long bone fractures and help restore the shape of fractured bone to its natural, pre-injured state. The session will be held on June 4.

    The new Zimmer Natural Nail portfolio will not only be presented at the side event, but can also be seen at the Zimmer booth. Zimmer will also be highlighting the performance of its Zimmer(R) NexGen(R) Primary Knees, which have outranked other primary knee implants(1) in the Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Registry in the last consecutive five annual reports covering 14 years of revision data.

    Fraport Annual General Meeting 2010: Traffic Figures Climbing Again - Stable Dividend of 1.15 Euros Recommended

    FRANKFURT, June 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Schulte: "We Have Weathered the Storm Well"

    "Extraordinary times are also exciting times that offer new opportunities," said Fraport AG executive board chairman Dr. Stefan Schulte at the company's ninth regular Annual General Meeting (AGM) for shareholders today in Frankfurt-Hochst. Summarizing the company's development in 2009 as well as during the first months of this year, Schulte stressed that the airport management group had weathered the storm well during the financial crisis - which severely impacted the air transportation industry last year - and took advantage of the time to implement far-reaching decisions for the future. "Despite all of its difficulties, 2009 was a year for setting a fundamental and positive course for the company's future," said Schulte.

    Schulte called the construction launch of Frankfurt Airport's (FRA) new Runway Northwest an essential step for the company's future development. The FRA capacity expansion program started last year is fully on schedule, with inauguration of new runway planned for the beginning of the 2011/12 Winter Timetable. Currently, preparations are underway for pouring the concrete of Runway Northwest. Simultaneously, work is progressing on the taxiway bridges that will link Runway Northwest with the airport apron.

    In 2009, Fraport established the basis for successfully concluding negotiations with the airlines on airport charges. Schulte described further milestones such as the basic agreement for passenger security control staff and, above all, the "Pact for the Future" for the company's aviation ground services division. These important business areas remain a vital part of the company and allow FRA to provide attractive services in the highly competitive environment of international aviation hubs.

    This is the same goal of Fraport's new "Great to Have You Here" service initiative, which strives to create further improvements in service offerings by enhancing comfort and enjoyment in the terminals. The heightened expectations of international passengers for comfortable airport ambience will be met by expanding the retail offerings at FRA. Now taking shape, the new Pier A-Plus with a huge marketplace will offer a 9,000 square meter outstanding shopping experience for the approximately 25 million passengers per year that will be using Pier A and the new Pier A-Plus. Fraport is linking its growth with the goal of sustainable development. In particular, Fraport started preparations last year for a measurable reduction in noise emissions - in order to present along with partners an effective package of measures for active noise abatement.

    Schulte emphasized that last year's 4.7 percent fall in passenger traffic at FRA, as well as the 10.6 percent reduction in cargo tonnage, are now history. Meanwhile, traffic has recovered and, in the case of cargo, has been clearly over compensated for. Nevertheless, in fiscal year 2009 the traffic slump led to revenue dropping by 6.1 percent to about EUR2 billion. Decisive factors here also included Fraport's divestiture of its holdings in ICTS Europe and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.

    EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) slipped by about eight percent to EUR553 million. Through adjustments in personnel costs, as well as savings in non-staff costs and tax on investments, it was possible to counteract the effects of the crisis. Thus, the company was able to realize savings of EUR28 million. Goup profit fell by some 20 percent to EUR157.3 million - primarily because of higher capital costs for realizing FRA's expansion program.

    The optimism at the end of 2009 - which could be particularly felt because of the noticeable economic recovery in the Far East and the resulting rise in traffic volumes - has been confirmed by traffic during the first months of 2010, although this period was also characterized by extraordinary events. A longer and harder winter, a pilot strike and finally clouds of ash from Iceland's Eyjafjalla Volcano in April did not prevent the exceptionally positive 30 percent surge in cargo tonnage at FRA since the beginning of the year. Despite traffic drops, Frankfurt Airport still managed to record a 3.9 percent gain in passenger figures during the first quarter of 2010. The multi-day standstill in European air traffic in April pushed FRA's passenger figures into the 1.9 minus range for the first four months of the year.

    Schulte further explained that the satisfying development of the company's external business was also driving Fraport's future. Currently, Fraport is active at 13 airports worldwide, either as a full airport operator or by providing management staff under concession contracts. These airports served a total of 174 million passengers in 2009. Fraport's latest project is Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, Russia. The wide range of Fraport's airport projects helped cushion the impact of the air traffic slump during the global financial crisis and the geographically-limited special developments caused by strikes, weather and ash clouds.

    Thus, Schulte said he was pleased to announce to the AGM that the company was recommending a stable dividend of EUR1.15 per share for fiscal year 2009. For the current year, he expects revenue to rise thanks to the recovery in air traffic and the positive development of the Group's airports - which should result in about an EUR80 million improvement in EBITDA to EUR635. million. Despite the ash clouds, the current outlook is that passenger traffic will grow by one to two percent for 2010.

Summarizing the company's development in 2009 as well as during the first months of this year, Schulte stressed that the airport management group had weathered the storm well during the financial crisis - which severely impacted the air transportation industry last year - and took advantage of the time to implement far-reaching decisions for the future. "Despite all of its difficulties, 2009 was a year for setting a fundamental and positive course for the company's future," said Schulte.

    Schulte called the construction launch of Frankfurt Airport's (FRA) new Runway Northwest an essential step for the company's future development. The FRA capacity expansion program started last year is fully on schedule, with inauguration of new runway planned for the beginning of the 2011/12 Winter

    Timetable. Currently, preparations are underway for pouring the concrete of Runway Northwest. Simultaneously, work is progressing on the taxiway bridges that will link Runway Northwest with the airport apron.

    In 2009, Fraport established the basis for successfully concluding negotiations with the airlines on airport charges. Schulte described further milestones such as the basic agreement for passenger security control staff and, above all, the "Pact for the Future" for the company's aviation ground services division. These important business areas remain a vital part of the company and allow FRA to provide attractive services in the highly competitive environment of international aviation hubs.

    This is the same goal of Fraport's new "Great to Have You Here" service initiative, which strives to create further improvements in service offerings by enhancing comfort and enjoyment in the terminals. The heightened expectations of international passengers for comfortable airport ambience will be met by expanding the retail offerings at FRA. Now taking shape, the new Pier A-Plus with a huge marketplace will offer a 9,000 square meter outstanding shopping experience for the approximately 25 million passengers per year that will be using Pier A and the new Pier A-Plus. Fraport is linking its growth with the goal of sustainable development. In particular, Fraport started preparations last year for a measurable reduction in noise emissions - in order to present along with partners an effective package of measures for active noise abatement.

    Schulte emphasized that last year's 4.7 percent fall in passenger traffic at FRA, as well as the 10.6 percent reduction in cargo tonnage, are now history. Meanwhile, traffic has recovered and, in the case of cargo, has been clearly over compensated for. Nevertheless, in fiscal year 2009 the traffic slump led to revenue dropping by 6.1 percent to about EUR2 billion. Decisive factors here also included Fraport's divestiture of its holdings in ICTS Europe and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.

    EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) slipped by about eight percent to EUR553 million. Through adjustments in personnel costs, as well as savings in non-staff costs and tax on investments, it was possible to counteract the effects of the crisis. Thus, the company was able to realize savings of EUR28 million. Goup profit fell by some 20 percent to EUR157.3 million - primarily because of higher capital costs for realizing FRA's expansion program.

    The optimism at the end of 2009 - which could be particularly felt because of the noticeable economic recovery in the Far East and the resulting rise in traffic volumes - has been confirmed by traffic during the first months of 2010, although this period was also characterized by extraordinary events. A longer and harder winter, a pilot strike and finally clouds of ash from Iceland's Eyjafjalla Volcano in April did not prevent the exceptionally positive 30 percent surge in cargo tonnage at FRA since the beginning of the year. Despite traffic drops, Frankfurt Airport still managed to record a 3.9 percent gain in passenger figures during the first quarter of 2010. The multi-day standstill in European air traffic in April pushed FRA's passenger figures into the 1.9 minus range for the first four months of the year.

    Schulte further explained that the satisfying development of the company's external business was also driving Fraport's future. Currently, Fraport is active at 13 airports worldwide, either as a full airport operator or by providing management staff under concession contracts. These airports served a total of 174 million passengers in 2009. Fraport's latest project is Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, Russia. The wide range of Fraport's airport projects helped cushion the impact of the air traffic slump during the global financial crisis and the geographically-limited special developments caused by strikes, weather and ash clouds.

    Thus, Schulte said he was pleased to announce to the AGM that the company was recommending a stable dividend of EUR1.15 per share for fiscal year 2009. For the current year, he expects revenue to rise thanks to the recovery in air traffic and the positive development of the Group's airports - which should result in about an EUR80 million improvement in EBITDA to EUR635. million. Despite the ash clouds, the current outlook is that passenger traffic will grow by one to two percent for 2010.

    Assemblée générale annuelle de Fraport 2010 : les chiffres du trafic remontent - un dividende stable de 1,15 euro est recommandé

    FRANCFORT, June 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Schulte : << Nous avons bien supporté la tempête >>

    << Les périodes extraordinaires sont aussi des périodes palpitantes qui offrent de nouvelles opportunités >>, a déclaré le Dr Stefan Schulte, Président du Conseil exécutif de Fraport AG lors de la neuvième Assemblée générale annuelle (AGA) des actionnaires aujourd'hui à Francfort-Höchst. En résumant l'évolution de la société en 2009 ainsi que pendant les premiers mois de cette année, Schulte a insisté sur le fait que le groupe de gestion d'aéroport avait bien supporté la tempête pendant la crise financière - qui a eu un sérieux impact sur le secteur du transport aérien l'année dernière - et avait tiré profit de cette période pour mettre en oeuvre des décisions à long terme. << Malgré toutes les difficultés rencontrées en 2009, la société s'est engagée dans une voie fondamentale qui lui permet de voir son avenir de manière positive >>, a déclaré Schulte.

    Schulte a considéré le lancement de la construction de la nouvelle piste nord-ouest de l'aéroport de Francfort (FRA) comme une étape essentielle du futur développement de la société. Le programme d'expansion de la capacité de FRA qui a débuté l'année dernière est tout à fait dans les temps. L'inauguration de cette nouvelle piste est prévue pour le début de l'hiver 2011/2012. Les préparatifs sont en cours pour verser le béton sur la piste nord-ouest. Par ailleurs, les travaux progressent sur les ponts de circulation qui relieront la piste nord-ouest à l'aire de trafic de l'aéroport.

    En 2009, Fraport a préparé le terrain pour des négociations fructueuses avec les compagnies aériennes sur les frais de l'aéroport. Schulte a décrit de futures étapes décisives telles que le contrat de base pour le personnel de contrôle de la sécurité des passagers et, surtout, le << Pacte pour l'avenir >> pour la division des services d'aviation au sol de la société. Ces importants domaines commerciaux restent une part vitale de la société et permettent à FRA de fournir des services attrayants dans l'environnement ultra-compétitif des plates-formes aériennes internationales.

    Il s'agit du même objectif que la nouvelle initiative de service de Fraport << C'est super de vous avoir ici >>, qui vise à améliorer les offres de services en optimisant le confort et le plaisir dans les aérogares. Les attentes accrues des passagers internationaux quant à une ambiance d'aéroport confortable seront satisfaites en étendant les offres de vente au détail de FRA. Prenant actuellement forme, la nouvelle jetée A-Plus dotée d'une énorme surface commerciale offrira une expérience d'achat remarquable de 9 000 mètres carrés aux près de 25 millions de passagers par an qui utiliseront la jetée A et la nouvelle jetée A-Plus. Fraport lie sa croissance à l'objectif de développement durable. En particulier, Fraport a commencé ses préparatifs l'année dernière en vue d'une réduction mesurable de ses émissions de bruit et de présenter avec ses partenaires un ensemble de mesures pour une réduction active du bruit.

    Schulte a insisté sur le fait que la baisse de 4,7 % du trafic passager de FRA l'année dernière, ainsi que la réduction de 10,6 % de la masse de cargaison, font maintenant partie du passé. Entretemps, le trafic s'est redressé et, dans le cas des cargaisons, il s'est véritablement rattrapé. Néanmoins, au cours de l'exercice 2009, la chute du trafic a eu pour conséquence de faire baisser le revenu de 6,1 % à environ 2 milliards d'euros. Ces facteurs décisifs ont aussi inclus le désinvestissement par Fraport de ses parts dans ICTS Europe et l'aéroport de Francfort-Hahn.

    L'EBITDA (résultat avant intérêts, impôts, dépréciation et amortissement) a chuté d'environ 8 % pour atteindre 553 millions d'euros. Par le biais d'ajustements en coûts de personnel, ainsi qu'en économisant sur les coûts non liés au personnel et les impôts sur investissements, il a été possible de contrer les effets de la crise. La société a ainsi été capable d'économiser 28 millions d'euros. Les bénéfices du Groupe ont chuté de quelque 20 % pour atteindre 157,3 million d'euros - principalement en raison des coûts de capital plus élevés pour la réalisation du programme d'expansion de FRA.

    L'optimisme de fin 2009 - qui s'est particulièrement fait ressentir en raison du redressement économique remarquable en Extrême-Orient et de la hausse résultante des volumes de trafic - a été confirmé par le trafic des premiers mois de 2010, bien que cette période ait aussi été caractérisée par des évènements extraordinaires. Un hiver plus long et plus rude, une grève des pilotes et enfin les nuages de cendres du volcan Eyjafjalla d'Islande en avril n'ont pas empêché la masse de cargaison de FRA de progresser de 30 %, remontée exceptionnelle, depuis le début de l'année. Malgré ses baisses de trafic, l'aéroport de Francfort a tout de même réussi à enregistrer une augmentation de 3,9 % de son nombre de passagers pendant le premier trimestre 2010. La paralysie pendant plusieurs jours du trafic aérien en Europe durant le mois d'avril a entraîner une baisse de 1,9 % nombre de passagers de FRA durant les quatre premiers mois de l'année.

    Schulte a expliqué que le développement satisfaisant des affaires externes de la société avait aussi un impact sur le futur de Fraport. Fraport est actuellement actif dans 13 aéroports du monde, soit en tant qu'opérateur complet, soit en fournissant le personnel de direction sous des contrats de concession. Ces aéroports ont accueilli au total 174 millions de passagers en 2009. Le dernier projet de Fraport est l'aéroport de Pulkovo à Saint-Pétersbourg, en Russie. La large gamme de projets d'aéroports de Fraport a contribué à amortir l'impact de la chute du trafic aérien pendant la crise financière mondiale et des développements particuliers géographiquement limités causés par les grèves, le temps et les nuages de cendres.

    Schulte a ainsi déclaré qu'il avait été ravi d'annoncer lors de l'AGA que la société recommandait un dividende stable de 1,15 euro par action pour l'exercice 2009. Pour l'exercice en cours, il s'attend à ce que le revenu augmente grâce au redressement du trafic aérien et au développement des aéroports du Groupe - ce qui devrait entraîner une amélioration d'environ 80 millions d'euros de l'EBITDA pour atteindre 635 millions d'euros. Malgré les nuages de cendres, on estime actuellement que le trafic passager augmentera d'1 ou 2 % en 2010.
