The Board of Directors of Akka Technologies decided at its meeting of 5 May 2014 to propose to shareholders the transformation of the company into a European Company (Societas Europaea - SE). This status is recognised in all European Union countries, and has been adopted by many large groups. It reflects the Group's international dimension and its growing presence in Europe, particularly following its acquisitions of Aeroconseil and MBtech.
With operations in 20 countries worldwide, including 12 European countries, and nearly 11,000 employees, 83% of which in Europe, Akka Technologies is building on sound European foundations. The Group is currently European leader in automotive and aerospace engineering.
The transformation into a European Company will have no impact on Akka Technologies' governance or the listing of its shares.
The proposed transformation is subject to the completion of negotiations on the involvement of employees in the company. It will be submitted for approval to Akka Technologies' Shareholders' Meeting on 17 June 2014 and to the meeting of bondholders scheduled on 2 June 2014.
