('CGC'), 333 South Hope Street, Los Angeles, California, USA, a holding company for several subsidiary companies engaged in investment management business, the notification that following a sale of registered shares of Nestlé S.A. CGC, on behalf of funds managed by Capital Research and Management Company, 333 South Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA., USA, and clients managed by Capital Guardian Trust Company, 333 South Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA., USA, Capital International Limited, 40, Grosvenor Place, London, United Kingdom, Capital International Inc., 11100 Santa Monica Blvd 15th Fl., Los Angeles, CA., USA, and Capital International S.A., 3 Place des Bergues, 1201 Geneva, Switzerland, fell below the threshold of 3% of voting rights of Nestlé S.A. on July 24, 2008.  

Neither CGC nor any of its subsidiaries own the shares for their own account or are beneficial owners of such shares. The shares are owned by accounts under the discretionary investment management of one or more of the investment management companies mentioned above. The discretionary investment management entitles CGC's management companies to exercise voting rights autonomously and the notification of CGC is therefore a notification according to the 'Disclosure Office Notice II/99 - Asset management and custody account business / nominees'.

Contact person of the shareholder for this notification: Vivien Tan, tel. +1 213 615 0469, fax +1 213 486 9698.
