MEMC Changes Company Name To SunEdison

ST. PETERS, Mo., May 30, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — SunEdison, Inc. (NYSE: WFR), today announced that after obtaining overwhelming stockholder approval at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders, held earlier today in San Francisco, California, the process of changing the company's name to SunEdison, Inc., from MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc., has been completed. On June 3, 2013, the company's stock symbol on the New York Stock Exchange will change from "WFR" to "SUNE" to reflect the new corporate name.

"Changing our name to SunEdison is a major milestone as this represents another step toward creating an elite, global brand that builds on a more than 50 year tradition of innovation and growth that began under the MEMC name," said Ahmad Chatila, President and CEO. "We strongly believe the SunEdison name provides us with broader marketplace appeal and scalability that will help us grow the company and build long-term brand equity as we look toward the next chapter."

"Our broad product and service offerings, across two industries, gives us a solid platform for future growth and stability," Chatila concluded. "Our heritage of innovation, combined with our diversified and synergistic business model, has created a powerful market position. Today, both business units are growing and providing customers with some of the best semiconductor and solar products and solutions available. We are committed to growing both the semiconductor and solar power businesses, and look forward to building on our strong legacies, now under the SunEdison name."

SunEdison will continue to maintain its corporate headquarters in St. Peters, Missouri.
