Become a shareholder

There are alternative methods by which you can become an Aramis Group shareholder:

  • You can buy Aramis Group shares from a bank or broker who will act as custodian of your securities account or equity savings plan (plan d’épargne en actions: PEA). (You have the option of either holding your shares as bearer shares or keeping them in a managed registered account)
  • You can buy shares through Société Générale Securities Services, which manages Aramis Group’s shareholding services. (You have the option of holding your shares in fully registered form).
  • Please refer to the Section “Type of shareholding” for further information.

As French legislation and Aramis Group’s by-laws currently stand, the main rights attached to Aramis Group’s shares are as follows:

  • dividend and profit-sharing rights of Aramis Group,
  • right to participate in general shareholders’ meetings,
  • voting rights, being specified that a double voting right will be granted to any share that has been registered for a continuous period of two years in the name of the same shareholder (from the date of admission of the Company’s shares to trading on Euronext Paris)
  • preferential subscription right for securities of the same category,
  • right to participate in any surplus in the event of liquidation.

As a shareholder of Aramis Group, you become the owner of a portion of its capital.

As co-owner of the company, the shareholder is associated with its development, but also with its risks. However, these are limited to the amount of its capital share, regardless of the debts contracted by the company. Shareholders only bear losses up to the amount of their contributions.


How the shares may be held

Your shares may be held in a securities account in your name in one of the following three forms: bearer shares, managed registered shares or fully registered shares.


Bearer shares:

Bearer shares are held in a share account with a bank or broker of your choice. You can therefore group all the shares in your portfolio in the same account. This account records all transactions related to shares (purchases, sales, secondment of rights).

If you wish to hold bearer shares, you may contact your broker who will help you to acquire Aramis Group’s share.

However, you are only identified by the company on an ad hoc basis (in bearer share surveys conducted by Euroclear France) and therefore you do not receive notices of Shareholders’ General Meetings.

Fully registered shares:

Your shares are registered and held in the Securities Department of a broker appointed by Aramis Group to manage its fully registered shareholders:

Société Générale Securities Services
Immeuble Perspective Defense
5 Rue du Débarcadère Bat B
92700 Colombes

You are identified by Aramis Group and will therefore receive the notices of Shareholders’ General Meetings.

You benefit from free custody fees and double voting rights allocated to all fully paid-up shares for which proof of registration as registered shares for at least two years has been provided, in the name of the same shareholder.

To become a fully registered shareholder, simply ask your broker to transfer your shares to Société Générale Securities Services. The cost of this operation is defined by your broker.

Managed registered shares:

If your shares are in managed registered form, they are held in a securities account with the broker of your choice. They are recorded in Aramis Group’s records. You have a single securities account for your entire share portfolio, but you do not benefit from free custody rights.

You are identified by Aramis Group and will therefore receive the notices of Shareholders’ General Meetings.
