Boulogne-Billancourt (France), 12 May 2021 (5:45 p.m.) - The French Minister for the Economy and Finance has committed via the Decree of 6 November 2019[1] to remitting an additional share for each tranche of ten shares acquired by a retail shareholder at the time of the IPO of La Française des Jeux, provided that the shares were held for 18 months from the settlement-delivery of the French Public Offering on 22 November 2019, up to and including 24 May 2021 (statement of securities positions on Euroclear). Only shares with the ISIN FR0013457272 are eligible.

The allocation is automatic and free of charge. The additional shares thus delivered will be recorded in the securities accounts of eligible shareholders on 25 May 2021. These shares keep the same form as existing shares (nominative or bearer shares) and provide the same voting and dividend rights as trading shares. On the completion of the transaction, all FDJ shares will bear the same ISIN, FR0013451333.

If a shareholder does not hold a multiple of ten shares, the fractional shares will be sold on the market by the shareholder’s financial intermediary. The latter will compensate the shareholder for the number of fractions held, within a maximum period of 30 days following the allocation of the additional shares.

As these additional shares already exist and are currently held by the French State, there will be no creation of new shares or dilution of shareholders as a result of the transaction.

The next Annual General Meeting of the FDJ Group will be held on 16 June 2021, with a dividend payment date of 23 June 2021.
