EDF Group successfully completes its offer reserved for employees and former employees
The offer to eligible employees, former employees and retired employees of the EDF Group1 announced on 17 April 2019 was successfully completed. The operation, offered on attractive terms, met strong demand, illustrated by a large oversubscription of the shares offered: the allocation of 7,704,974 shares offered for sale was thus subscribed for 580%.
On 10 July 2019, EDF purchased 7,704,974 EDF shares from the French State for an aggregate price of €94,462,981.24, i.e., €12.26 per share (which corresponds to the average rate weighted by the daily volumes of EDF shares traded on the Euronext Paris stock market from 23 May to 19 June 2019). These shares will be sold through an FCPE to eligible employees, former employees and retired employees of the EDF Group with a 20% discount, i.e., at €9.81 per share, with a delivery date scheduled for 16 July 2019. In addition, eligible persons benefited from a matching contribution of up to 500 euros.
Jean-Bernard Lévy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of EDF, said: “The success of the subscription to the offer reserved for employees, beyond our expectations, demonstrates the great confidence the employees have in their company. EDF is deeply committed to the fight against global warming and the country's energy transformation. The involvement of all our employees in the company's project is the guarantee of our success.”
