In addition, the shareholders approved the principle to launch in 2014 an employee-shareholder operation involving a capital increase reserved for Group employees, through the emission of a maximum of 400,000 new shares, which may be completed early 2015. This would be the sixth employee shareholder operation carried out by the Group at the international level. Employees may be given the opportunity to subscribe to a structured “leverage effect” formula, the same as the one proposed in 2010 and 2012, guaranteeing the amount invested by the employees. Subject to approval from the AMF (French market authority), the shares would be subscribed through a Corporate Trust Fund at a unit price including a 20% discount to the reference share price (unless local regulations require otherwise).
