Amsterdam, October 11, 2017 -- STMicroelectronics N.V. (the "Company" or "STMicroelectronics") announces that, in accordance with the terms and conditions (the "Conditions") of its US$400,000,000 1.00 per cent. convertible bonds due 2021 (ISIN: XS1083957024, the "Bonds"), it has exercised its option under Condition 7(b) of the Bonds to redeem all outstanding Bonds on November 10, 2017 (the Optional Redemption Date referred to in the Conditions) at their principal amount, together with accrued but unpaid interest up to, but excluding, that date.

The Company is entitled to exercise this option under Condition 7(b)(iii) as Conversion Rights have been exercised, and/or purchases (and corresponding cancellations) and/or redemptions have been effected in respect of more than 85 per cent of the principal amount of the Bonds originally issued. Following such redemption, the Bonds will be cancelled and there will be no Bonds due 2021 outstanding.

As an alternative to the redemption of the Bonds, each Bondholder may exercise its Conversion Rights to convert its Bonds into Shares, cash or a combination of Shares and cash by reference to the prevailing conversion price, currently US$12.3622 per Share, in accordance with Condition 6(a) of the Bonds. In order for any such exercise of Conversion Rights to be valid, the Conversion Date in respect of such exercise must fall on or before October 26, 2017.

As of October 10, 2017, the aggregate principal amount of Bonds outstanding (as defined in the Trust Deed) was US$59.6 million and the closing price of the Shares on the Mercato Telematico Azionario was €16.65.

A copy of the Optional Redemption Notice is available on the Company's website   www.st.com.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this notice have the same meaning in the Conditions of the Bonds.
