At today's Annual General Meeting, Swiss Life Holding's shareholders approved all the resolutions proposed by the Board of Directors by a large majority. Around 1250 shareholders, representing 9.6 million registered shares or 29 percent of the share capital, took part in the meeting.

Swiss Life Holding is distributing a dividend in the form of a repayment of par value for the 2006 financial year. This will reduce the company's ordinary share capital by CHF 7 per registered share, from CHF 41 to CHF 34 per share. The amount of the reduction, CHF 7 per share, is expected to be paid at the beginning of August 2007 to shareholders in possession of Swiss Life Holding shares on the day before said payout.

There are no changes to the composition of the Board of Directors: Volker Bremkamp, Rudolf Kellenberger and Peter Quadri, who stood for reelection to the Board of Directors, were elected for a further three-year term of office by a large majority.
