ALTAMIR : 2015 Registration Document available
Paris, 1 April 2016 - Altamir's 2015 Registration Document was filed with the French Financial Markets Authority (AMF) on 1 April 2016.
The document has been significantly reorganised and enriched, and we are pleased to make it available to investors in its new form:
- Our aim in restructuring the document is to clearly present all of the information investors need to form a judgement about the Company, by adhering to the recommendations of the AMF (guide for preparing registration documents, adapted to midcap companies, in accordance with the European prospectus regulation);
- The content is now more detailed and educational on subjects such as private equity, management costs, corporate governance and valuation methods;
- We have highlighted the 11 principal investments, which represented 81% of the portfolio's fair value as of 31 December 2015, and we have added a glossary at the end of the document.
The following documents are included in the Registration Document:
- The 2015 annual financial report;
- The report of the Chairman of the Supervisory Board on internal control and corporate governance;
- Fees paid to the Statutory Auditors;
- Description of the share buyback programme;
- The annual information document.
This document is available in French on the websites of the Company (www.altamir.fr, Investors/Regulated information/Annual reports) and the AMF (www.amf-france.org). It is also available at the Company's headquarters: 1, rue Paul Cézanne - 75008 Paris (France).
An English version of the document will be available on Altamir's website in the coming days.
