GROUPE STERIA : Equity refinancing foreseen before year end 2007 intregrating the issue of a hybrid subordinated convertible bond


The Group Steria Supervisory Board and the Soderi Board of Directors have validated the issue of a hybrid subordinated convertible bond which aims to optimise the earnings per share.

This issue will replace part of the initially planned capital increase , it being precised that the capital increase will be slightly larger than the hybrid convertible bond. The total size of these issues will represent approximately a half of the Xansa acquisition price.

As of today, Steria is at an advanced stage to envisage the completion of these operations before the end of 2007, depending on market conditions.

These operations are subject to the receipt of the visa of the AMF (French stock market authority).

Steria is listed on Euronext Paris, Eurolist (Compartment B) ISIN: FR0000072910, Bloomberg Code: RIA FP, Reuters Code: TERI.PA CAC MID&SMALL 190, CAC MID 100, CAC Soft&CS, CAC Technology SBF 120 general index, SBF 250, SBF 80, IT CAC, NEXT 150 For further information, please visit our website:
