Geneva, Switzerland, March 11, 2013 – Following the STMicroelectronics’ announcement issued earlier today, ST-Ericsson, a joint venture of STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) and Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), announced today that Didier Lamouche, president and chief executive officer, has decided to resign from the Company to pursue other opportunities.

On behalf of ST-Ericsson's board, I thank Didier for his strong contribution to ST-Ericsson."
Lamouche will remain in his current position until March 31, 2013.
