Celestica Announces Terms Of US$175,000,000 Substantial Issuer Bid

(All amounts in U.S. dollars)

TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today announced the terms of its previously announced substantial issuer bid (the "Offer"), pursuant to which Celestica will offer to purchase for cancellation up to 25,000,000 of its subordinate voting shares ("Shares") for an aggregate purchase price not exceeding US$175,000,000.  The Offer will be conducted through a "modified Dutch auction" within a price range of not less than US$7.00 per Share and not more than US$8.00 per Share (in increments of US$0.10 per Share within that range).  We intend to fund any purchases of Shares pursuant to the Offer from available cash on hand and from cash drawn on our existing revolving credit facility.

The "modified Dutch auction" tender process allows shareholders to individually select the price, within the specified range, at which they are willing to sell their Shares.  When the Offer expires, we will select the lowest purchase price that will allow us to purchase the maximum number of Shares properly tendered to the Offer, and not withdrawn, having an aggregate purchase price not exceeding US$175,000,000.  If Shares with an aggregate purchase price of more than US$175,000,000 are properly tendered and not withdrawn, we will purchase the Shares on a  pro rata basis except that "odd lot" tenders (of holders beneficially owning fewer than 100 Shares) will not be subject to pro-ration.  The Offer will not be conditional on any minimum number of Shares being tendered to the Offer, but will be subject to other conditions customary for a transaction of this nature. The Offer will remain open for acceptance until 5 p.m. Eastern time on December 3, 2012, unless withdrawn or extended by Celestica.

We plan to mail the formal Offer to Purchase, Issuer Bid Circular and other related documents containing the terms and conditions of the Offer, instructions for tendering Shares, and the factors considered by Celestica and the Board in making its decision to approve the Offer, among other things, on or about October 29, 2012.  These documents will be filed with the applicable Canadian provincial and territorial securities commissions and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and will be available on SEDAR at, on EDGAR at, and on Celestica's website at Shareholders should carefully read the Offer to Purchase, Issuer Bid Circular and other related documents prior to making a decision with respect to the Offer.

The Celestica Board has authorized the making of the Offer.  Neither Celestica nor its Board makes any recommendation to shareholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their Shares to the Offer. Shareholders are urged to consult their own financial, tax and legal advisors and to make their own decisions whether to tender or to refrain from tendering their Shares to the Offer and, if so, how many Shares to tender and at what price or prices.
