Controversy

On Friday, January 12, 2007 a shareholder class action suit was filed in New York against Celestica and members of the company’s executive team.

The complaint alleges that the company made materially false and misleading statements about the business and failed to disclose adverse facts, namely:

(i) that the Company was experiencing declining demand in its Mexican operations and that the division was carrying significant amounts of unneeded inventory which would have to be written off;

(ii) that the Company was experiencing declining demand in its Information Technology (IT) and Communications market segments as its larger customers scaled back purchases; and that the stock dropped when this information later became public.

This class action suit is still being solved as of January 25, 2007.
