NATUREX : Naturex announces its eligibility for PEA-PME and inclusion in the new Euronext index, CAC(R) PME


Avignon, 28 March 2014 - Naturex, world leader in speciality plant-based ingredients, informs shareholders of its eligibility for French equity savings vehicles for small and mid caps (PEA-PME) qualifying for special tax benefits according to new criteria applicable in France (Decree No. 2014-283 of 4 March 2014) and its inclusion in the Euronext index CAC® PME.

Based on its annual consolidated financial statements, Naturex fully meets the criteria established by the French Ministry of Economy and Finance:

PEA-PME eligibility criteria Naturex Group consolidated data
Less than 5,000 employees 1,500 employees
Less than ¤1.5 million in revenue  ¤320.8 million
Less than ¤2 billion in assets  ¤471.6 million1

In consequence, Naturex shares are eligible for inclusion in PEA-PME. The PEA-PME is a new form of equity savings vehicle created on 1 January 2014. Supplementing the standard equity savings vehicle, it qualifies for the same tax advantages and is subject to the same operating rules except that investments in PEA-PME are destined exclusively to finance listed and unlisted French and European SMEs and mid-size companies (ETIs)2.

Furthermore, Naturex was selected to be included in the new index introduced by Euronext, CAC® PME that tracks the performances of 20 to 40 French PEA PME eligible companies listed on Euronext and Alternext markets in Paris. Its components are based on local trade volumes with the weight of individual stock capped at 7.5%. The CAC®PME is calculated in real time and its composition and weightings will be revised quarterly. It is listed under ISIN code FR0011710375 and the trading symbol CAPME.

"Naturex is proud to meet the criteria for PEA-PME eligibility and to be among the 40 stocks selected to be included in this new Euronext CAC® PME index. Inclusion in this index highlights both the confidence of our shareholders over many years and Naturex's positioning among dynamic and innovative French and European SMEs and mid-size companies", commented Thierry-Bertrand Lambert, Naturex's Chief Financial Officer.
