The Board of THEOLIA convened on February 9, 2010 to appoint a new management team replacing Marc van't Noordende and Olivier Dubois. Eric Peugeot was appointed CEO, and François Rivière and Jean-François Azam were appointed deputy CEOs.
THEOLIA and its Board of Directors would like to clarify the following points:There is no change to the previously announced timetable of the financial restructuring: the Bondholders' General Meeting took place on February 18, 2010, and the Shareholders' General Meeting will take place March 19, 2010. Based on a favorable outcome of these meetings, a capital increase will occur during the second quarter of this year, subject to market conditions. An AMF approved prospectus will be made publicly available at the time of the capital increase. With the success of the financial restructuring dependent upon widespread support for the plan, the Board concluded that the two former directors no longer gathered the necessary backing from all the parties involved. The appointment of Eric Peugeot is thereby intended to foster the support of the majority of shareholders and bondholders in favor of the financial restructuring.
The Board reiterates that the success of this restructuring plan is critical for the Company's future, its shareholders and its bondholders.
