IFF Reaches Settlement On Income Tax Disputes With Spain

As mentioned earlier, as part of the overall settlement, the parties also preliminarily agreed upon the key principles to be incorporated into an agreement that will establish the tax basis regarding the future activities of IFF’s Spanish subsidiaries for 2012 and future years. The Company expects to formalize this agreement prior to the end of 2012, and believes the terms of this agreement will not have a material impact on the Company’s effective tax rate for 2012.

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” under the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including (i) the Company’s expectation regarding the ultimate assessment that will be imposed by the Spanish tax authorities for the 2011 fiscal year upon the completion of the audit of the 2011 Spanish tax return; (ii) the final resolution of the pending legal proceedings associated with the income tax deductions taken for the 2002-2003 fiscal year; (iii) the Company’s ability to execute, and its expectations regarding the final terms of, the agreement with the Spanish tax authorities for 2012 and future years; and (iv) the after-tax impact of the related charges.
