This issue of BSA free of charge to all shareholders was decided by the company’s Board of Directors on 1 February 2019 pursuant to the delegation of authority granted by the Extraordinary and Ordinary General Meeting of 13 December 2018, under its fourth resolution.
On 18 February 2019, each shareholder received one BSA ‘J’ for each share held on 15 February 2019, therefore creating 103 056 240 BSA J.
These BSA J are listed for trading on the EURONEXT GROWTH PARIS market under ISIN code FR0013400983. Their exercise price is 0.093 Euros, with an exercise equivalent of one (1) new subscribed share for the exercise of three (3) BSA J.
BSA J could be exercised up to and including 18 February 2020.
An acceleration period had been planned to aid the immediate exercise of the BSA J: In the event that BSA J be exercised within the first two (2) months following 18 February 2019, that is, by 18 April 2019 at the latest, each shareholder exercising BSA J was allocated, free of charge, as many stock warrants, namely BSA Y, as the number of new shares created upon exercise of the BSA J.
The BSA Y were also listed for trading on the EURONEXT GROWTH PARIS market (ISIN: FR0013400991) and were immediately fungible with the 22 058 823 BSA created on 1 February 2019 under the last phase of the OCABSA program.
The BSA Y exercise price was originally 0.136 Euros, with an exercise equivalent of one (1) newly subscribed share for the exercise of one (1) BSA Y. Following the decisions voted by the Special General Meeting of the warrant holders and the Extraordinary General Meeting of the shareholders, both held on 15 June 2020, the exercise price was lowered to 0.075 Euros with an exercise equivalent of one (1) newly subscribed share for the exercise of one (1) BSA Y.
Bearers of BSA Y will be able to exercise them up to and including 1 February 2023.
During the acceleration period (from 18 February to 18 April 2019), 34 439 235 BSA J were exercised, leading to the creation of 11 479 745 new shares and 11 479 745 BSA Y.
