Lyon, 26 June 2015
Results of the standing repurchase order for holders of the bonds convertible into and/or exchangeable for new or existing shares due on 28 December 2015 (the “2015 OCEANE”)
OL Groupe (the “Company”) repurchased off-market, on 18 June 2015 following the settlement of its share capital increase of approximately €53 million and in accordance with repurchase agreements executed on 26 May 2015, the 1,417,462 2015 OCEANE held by ICMI and the 1,243,999 2015 OCEANE held by Pathé (representing all together approximately 80% of the 2015 OCEANE issued) at a price of €7.50 per 2015 OCEANE corresponding to the par value (€7.26) plus accrued interests up to 18 June 2015 (such date excluded) (€0.24) (the “Repurchase”).
Following the Repurchase and in order to ensure an equal treatment of all the 2015 OCEANE holders, the Company undertook to place a standing repurchase order on the market (the “Standing Repurchase Order”, and together with the Repurchase, the “Repurchase Transaction”). The Company placed its Standing Repurchase Order on the regulated market of Euronext in Paris from 19 June 2015 to 25 June 2015 included, i.e. during a period of five consecutive trading days, at the same price as that paid to ICMI and Pathé, i.e. €7.50 per 2015 OCEANE.
The Standing Repurchase Order ended on 25 June 2015 and enabled the Company to repurchase 97,071 2015 OCEANE, representing approximately 3% of the total number of the 2015 OCEANE initially issued, at a unit price of €7.50 per 2015 OCEANE, representing a total amount of €728,032.50.
The total number of the 2015 OCEANE repurchased by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase Transaction equals 2,758,532 2015 OCEANE representing approximately 83% of the total number of the 2015 OCEANE initially issued. As a result, the number of outstanding 2015 OCEANE is 550,082, representing approximately 17% of the total number of the 2015 OCEANE initially issued.
The 2015 OCEANE repurchased under the Repurchase Transaction will be cancelled in accordance with their terms of issuance.
