The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) has published the results of the public tender offer initiated by Total on Saft Groupe. Following the settlement-delivery of the offer which is expected to occur on July 21, 2016, Total will hold 23,456,093 Saft Groupe shares representing 90.14% of the capital and voting rights of Saft Groupe based on the total number of shares outstanding as of July 12, 2016.

“Total is pleased with the success of this tender offer,” says Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total. “Our acquisition of more than 90% of the shares shows the confidence Saft shareholders have in our industrial project enabling Saft to accelerate its development.”

On his part, Ghislain Lescuyer, CEO of Saft Groupe, says, “Saft is delighted to join with Total, a major player in the energy sector, which will enable us to accelerate our development.”

According to the General Regulation of the AMF, the public tender offer initiated by Total will be re-opened from July 19 to August 2, 2016, in order to allow shareholders who have not yet disposed of their shares to do so under the same terms. Total confirms its intention to prioritise investment over dividend payout and will proceed with a delisting of the stock if a level of 95% of the capital and voting rights of Saft Groupe is reached.
