EADS talks to France on shares buyback
In the frame of its 18-month share buyback programme announced on 2 April 2013, EADS indicates that it is entering into discussions with the French State for the potential acquisition off-market of a stake of 1.56% in EADS.
The basis would be a price per share equal to 37.35 euros (i.e. corresponding to the share price resulting from the EADS shares ABB carried out by Lagardère), as proposed by the French State.
In addition, EADS intends to enter into an agreement for the management of its share buyback programme with an investment service provider under the French Autorités des marchés financiers (AMF) "safe harbour" regulations.
