Admission to trading of Parrot share subscription warrants on Euronext Paris on February 6, 2019

 PRESS RELEASE

Paris, France, Feb. 5, 2019, 8:00am CET

Admission to trading of Parrot share subscription warrants on Euronext Paris on February 6, 2019

In connection with its capital increase carried out in December 2015, Parrot issued Class 1 share subscription warrants (the “Class 1 Warrants”) and Class 2 share subscription warrants (the “Class 2 Warrants” and, with Class 1 Warrants, the “Warrants”)  to award the shareholders an incentive instrument for sharing in Parrot’s future development, while also engaging the managers in its future development (see the prospectus approved by the French financial markets authority (the “AMF”) on November 19, 2015 under number 15-590 (the “Prospectus”)).

The Prospectus provides that the Warrants are non-transferable and therefore non-tradeable until December 15, 2020 (inclusive), subject to certain exceptions set out in the Prospectus, which include the right for any Warrant holder to sell and exercise all or part of their Warrants if Parrot’s shares are subject to a public offer (notably tender, exchange or mixed) by a third party, resulting in the AMF publishing, before December 16, 2020, an offer submission notice.

Following (i) the decision of Parrot’s Board of Directors dated January 28, 2019, based on the report prepared by Accuracy on the valuation of the Warrants for the purpose of their admission to trading on Euronext Paris and (ii) the offer submission notice on the proposed takeover bid initiated by Horizon for Parrot shares (the “Offer”) published by the AMF on January 29, 2019 and pursuant to the provisions of the Prospectus, Parrot announces the admission to trading on Euronext Paris, as from the trading session of February 6, 2019, of the 17,575,278 Class 1 Warrants and 17,575,278 Class 2 Warrants, respectively under the following ISIN codes: FR0013054269 and FR0013054335. It is recalled that the Offer price for each Warrant is 0.01 euro1.

The Warrants, which are freely transferable and exercisable since January 29, 2019 will be freely tradeable on Euronext Paris at the option of their holders as from February 6, 2019.

The Parrot’s shares resulting from the exercise of the Warrants will be ordinary shares of the same class as the existing Parrot shares. They will carry current dividend rights and will entitle their holders to all distributions decided by Parrot as from the date they are issued. These shares will be subject to periodic requests for admission to trading on Euronext Paris on the same trading line as the existing Parrot shares and under the same ISIN code (i.e ISIN FR0004038263).

The main characteristics of the Warrants are as follows:

  • Parity and strike price:
    • 24 Class 1 Warrants allow their holder to subscribe to 2 new Parrot shares against payment of a strike price of 32.66 euros per Class 1 Warrant (i.e. a total strike price of 65.32 euros in order to subscribe to 2 new shares);
    • 28 Class 2 Warrants allow their holder to subscribe to 3 new Parrot shares against payment of a strike price of 42.24 euros per Class 2 Warrant (i.e. a total strike price of 127.02 euros in order to subscribe to 3 new shares).

The public’s attention is drawn to the fact that the strike prices of the Warrants are significantly higher than the Offer price per share (3.20 euros per share) and that, consequently, the Warrants are “out of the money” compared to the price offered per share.

  • Maturity: December 15, 2022

  • Number of shares that may be issued upon exercise of the Warrants:
    • the maximum number of new Parrot shares to be issued from the exercise of the Class 1 Warrants is 1,464,606 shares;
    • the maximum number of new Parrot shares to be issued from the exercise of the Class 2 Warrants is 1,883,065 shares;
