Success for the capital increase reserved for employees
Paris, 14 November 2019
The capital increase reserved for employees (announced on 31 July) has been a success: nearly one in two employees in France took part in the operation, which offered a discount of 30% for the first time under new rules introduced by the French PACTE Act1.
Over 1,300 employees from 14 countries subscribed for the capital increase, with total subscriptions exceeding €19m (compared with fewer than 1,000 participants and total subscriptions of €10m for the previous capital increase carried out in 2018).
This operation was completed under existing powers granted by the General Shareholders’ Meeting held in May 2019.
It reflects Amundi’s commitment to involving its employees more closely in the development of the business and the creation of economic value. It will also increase employees’ feelings of belonging.
The impact of this operation on net earnings per share is insignificant: 458,951 shares are created (representing 0.2% of capital and voting rights).
A notice regarding the admission of the new shares (ISIN code: FR0004125920) will be published by Euronext Paris today. The new shares will be admitted to trading on the morning of 18 November.
This new issuance brings the number of shares making up Amundi's share capital to 202,163,305.
Employees now hold 0.5% of Amundi’s share capital, compared with 0.3% before the capital increase.
