ALTAMIR : Tax status update


Paris, 10 March 2014 - Altamir stated in its press release of 6th March 2014 that the company is eligible for the French PEA PME tax regime. Following the publication of Decree n°2014-283 on 4th March 2014, Altamir is awaiting the specific details and comments from the French government in order to confirm its eligibility for the PEA PME regime.

As a reminder, Altamir derives certain tax benefits from its status as an SCR (French "société capital risque"). As such, retail investors of Altamir who reside in France are exempt from income tax, capital gains tax, and dividend tax on Altamir shares, subject to specific conditions regarding the length of time they hold their shares and re-invest dividends. The tax exemption benefits that Altamir derives from its status as an SCR are not affected by elegibility for the PEA PME regime.
