Both have agreed to Euronext to use this net proceeds to subscribe for and pay for the shares offered under the Rights Offering by exercising the rights granted to them.
Following settlement of the Rights Offering, Euroclear SA/NV and SFPI-FPIM are expected to hold 5.6% and 3.2% of Euronext’s share capital respectively and will continue to be part of the group of Reference Shareholders , and will remain committed to supporting Euronext’s long-term growth strategy.
Under the Rights Offering, Euroclear SA/NV and SFPI-FPIM have undertaken, subject to certain exceptions, not to sell any Euronext shares for a period ending 90 days after the settlement-delivery of the Offer with Rights.
