In December 2011, Atos appointed Crédit Agricole CIB as sole lead arranger for its share offering reserved for employees. This is the second time that Atos has requested the Bank’s services for its employee share ownership plan.
This third global offer proved a huge success, with 55,000 employees in 13 countries, i.e. 70% of eligible employees, taking part.
The operation led to the subscription of 950,000 shares representing 1.15% of the company’s capital (82.46 million shares as at July 1, 2011).
The success of this offer is tangible proof of the extent to which Atos employees are committed to their company and of their faith in its future.
“Crédit Agricole CIB is proud to be able to provide Atos with the comprehensive expertise of a team entirely devoted to employee share plans and this new collaboration has further strengthened our already close relationship”, says Senior Banker, Laurent Friedli.
Atos is an international information technology services company with annual revenue of EUR 8.5 billion and 74,000 employees in 42 countries. Serving a global client base, it delivers hi-tech transactional services, consulting and technology solutions and systems integration and managed services.
