Result of the 2015 dividend distribution in shares

Bezons, June 23, 2016

The option for the payment of the dividend in share resulted in the exercise of 59.19% of the rights in favor of a payment in shares. This rate of dividend distribution in shares led to an increase by € 66.3 million in the equity of Atos SE.

This transaction resulted in the issuance of 892,830 new shares (representing an increase by approximately 0.86% of the share capital and of the effective voting rights), which will be delivered and admitted for trading on Euronext Paris on June 24, 2016.

The shares issued in this manner will carry dividend rights as from January 1, 2016 and will be subject of listing requests on Euronext Paris. The newly-issued shares will be of the same class and equivalent to the ordinary shares of the Company already listed on Euronext Paris (Compartment A – code ISIN FR0000051732).

Atos SE’s Combined General Meeting held on May 26, 2016 determined that the amount of the dividend to be paid for the 2015 fiscal year would be € 1.10 per share and decided that shareholders could elect to receive the dividend either in cash or in shares. The issuance price of the newly-issued shares of the Company in consideration for the dividend was set at € 74.48, and was equal to 95% of the average opening prices on Euronext Paris regulated market over the twenty trading days preceding May 26, 2016, i.e. the date of the Combined General Meeting, reduced by the dividend amount and rounded up to the next highest euro cent.

The dividend resulting from the option for the payment in cash represented a total amount of € 47.1 million. It will also be paid on June 24, 2016.
