On 23 May 2023, the French Financial Markets Authority, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (the "AMF") published the result of the simplified public tender offer (the "Offer") filed by the French State for the equity securities of EDF, following the reopening of the Offer from 4 May 2023 to 17 May 2023.

Upon completion of the reopened Offer, the French State will own 3,908,590,275 EDF shares, representing 97.69% of the share capital and at least 98.04% of the voting rights of EDF[1], and 130,829,543 OCEANEs, representing 99.97% of the outstanding OCEANEs.

The notice of result of the reopened Offer released by the AMF is available on the AMF’s website (www.amf-france.org).

The settlement-delivery of the reopened Offer will occur on 25 May 2023 in accordance with the timetable released by Euronext Paris.

It is recalled that the French State will request the implementation of a squeeze-out procedure for EDF shares and OCEANEs, since the legal and regulatory conditions for such implementation are now met[2].

Trading of EDF shares and OCEANEs has been suspended since 18 May 2023 pending the implementation of the squeeze-out.
