Gecina now holds 99.75% of the diluted capital of Eurosic, allowing the implementation of the squeeze-out by the end of October
Following the acquisition of Eurosic’s blocks of securities on August 29, 2017, Gecina was holding close to 85% of the capital of Eurosic on a diluted basis. The release of the results of the simplified alternative public tender and exchange offer filed by Gecina on September 19, 2017 (the “Offer”) indicates that Gecina’s holding reach 99.75% as of today. This achievement favors the finalization of the acquisition of Eurosic through the implementation of the squeeze-out and delisting by the end of October. These last steps will promote the integration process of Eurosic.
Gecina and Eurosic announce that on October 17, 2017, the French Market Authority (Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF)) published a notice releasing the final results of the Offer and stated that 8,957,495 shares and 364,852 obligations subordonnées remboursables en actions (OSRA) were tendered in the Offer, representing in total 14.40%1 of the diluted capital of Eurosic.
Among the 9,322,347 shares and OSRA tendered in the Offer, 81.30% were tendered in the exchange offer, the remaining balance in the cash offer.
As a result, Gecina now holds 47,079,603 shares, that is 99.67% of the share capital of Eurosic, and 17,491,754 OSRA Eurosic, representing in total 99.75% of the diluted capital1.
As previously announced, Gecina will implement a squeeze-out and delisting to allow for the transfer of shares and OSRA of Eurosic not already owned by Gecina in exchange for a compensation equal to the price offered in the Offer.
In this regard, a request was made to Euronext Paris to suspend the trading of the shares and OSRA of Eurosic after market closing on October 16, 2017.
