Anevia successfully acquired by Ateme after sale of majority stake
Following the announcement on 6 October 2020 of the signature of the final agreements, Ateme has confirmed the acquisition of Anevia.
The completion of the sale follows the delivery by the contribution auditors of their reports, in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory provisions.
The majority shareholders will shortly transfer the balance of their interest in Anevia’s share capital to Ateme, by means of the contribution in kind of the shares resulting from the exercise of their dilutive instruments to date, and/or the sale of the remaining shares not contributed in kind to Ateme.
Following the acquisition, Ateme will hold 4,973,49 Anevia shares, representing 87% of the share capital and 87% of the voting rights of Anevia.
Michel Artières, chairman and chief executive officer at Ateme, commented: “We are proud to announce the completion of this major step in the acquisition of Anevia following the signature of the final agreements on 6 October. The first stage of the transaction has been successfully completed and the natural course of the transaction will enable Ateme to finalise the acquisition of Anevia in the coming weeks.”
Laurent Lafarge, chairman and chief executive officer at Anevia, stated: “We are very pleased that this project with Ateme has been concretely materialised by the success of this stage. We are now all ready for the final stages of this transaction, namely the success of the offer enabling Ateme to finalise this acquisition which will enable the construction of an enlarged group serving all our customers worldwide.”
In the first half of November Ateme will file a draft of a simplified alternative mandatory public offer consisting of a simplified mixed public offer or a simplified cash tender offer as an alternative.
