The Extraordinary Shareholders’ meeting of Safilo Group S.p.A. approves the share capital increase up to a maximum of Euro 150 million


Milan, October 29, 2018 – The Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Safilo Group S.p.A. (“Safilo”), convened today, resolved to:

  • eliminate the indication of the par value of the Company’s ordinary shares, currently equal to EUR 5.00 each, and
  • increase the share capital, in separable form and for consideration, up to a maximum amount of 150,000,000 Euro, including any share premium, through the issue of new ordinary shares without any indication of par value, with the same characteristics as those in circulation and paying regular dividends, to be offered in option to Company shareholders, pursuant to Article 2441, paragraph one, two and three of the Italian Civil Code, in proportion to the number of shares held, at a unit price calculated taking into account, inter alia, market conditions in general and the trend of the Company’s share price and volumes, expressed on the stock exchange, as well as the Company’s economic, financial and capital performance and market practice for similar transactions. Without prejudice to the above criteria, the issue price will be calculated by applying a discount to the so-called Theoretical Ex- Right Price (TERP) of existing shares, calculated using current methodology.
The Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting has also granted the Board of Directors with the broadest powers to define the timeframe for the execution of the Share Capital Increase resolution, in compliance with the deadline set by the Shareholders’ Meeting, i.e. 31 August 2019, as well as to determine, in the run-up to launch of the offer:(i) the final amount of the Share Capital Increase, within the limits of the maximum amount of 150,000,000 Euro; (ii) the issue price of the newly-issued shares and, therefore, the portion of issue price to be in case allocated to the share premium reserve; (iii) the maximum number of newly-issued shares and the ratio of assignment in option.

Subject to corporate and regulatory approvals, the Company intends to complete the transaction as soon as possible.
