Appeals Lodged against the Merger of Silic into Icade
PARIS -- December 10, 2013
On 6 December 2013, SMA Vie BTP lodged an appeal to the Paris Court of Appeal
to overturn the decision of the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers
published on 28 November 2013 declaring that Icade is not required to file a
buyout offer in respect of the Silic shares as a consequence of the proposed
merger of Silic into Icade, the terms and conditions of which were subject to
its review pursuant to article 236-6 of the AMF General Regulation (see Notice
of the AMF, No. 213C1819).
SMA Vie BTP also initiated summary proceedings on 6 December 2013 before the
President of the Commercial Court of Nanterre in order to postpone the
extraordinary shareholders’ general meeting of Silic convened on 27 December
2013 in order to vote on the merger of Silic into Icade. According to SMA Vie
BTP, the shareholders’ general meeting of Silic should be postponed after the
ruling of the Paris Court of Appeal on the appeal lodged against the decision
of the Autorité des marchés financiers.
Icade and Silic intend to oppose this request for an adjournment of Silic
shareholders’ general meeting.
