Merck KGaA Reveals Merck Serono Implementation Plans - Quick Facts

Merck KGaA (MKGAY.PK) announced efficiency measure plans relating to Merck Serono's operations in Switzerland as part of the comprehensive transformation program announced earlier. The planned measures include the closure of Merck Serono's headquarters in Geneva, workforce reductions and the redeployment of certain Switzerland-based functions to other Merck locations.

As a result, of the 1,250 current positions in Geneva more than 750 positions would be transferred. Further, Merck intends to reduce 500 positions in Geneva and 80 positions across the three Swiss-based manufacturing sites to create a leaner, more agile organization.

Following the closure of the consultation process with employees and review of its results, the company plans to start relocations and reductions of its workforce in the second half of 2012 and targets to fully implement the plan in the first half of 2013.
