Crypto Blockchain Industries (CBI): extraordinary general meeting on December 29, 2021
10-for-one stock split, with each shareholder owning one share to own 10 shares
Delegation of authority for the incorporation of reserves with a view to distributing bonus shares
CRYPTO BLOCKCHAIN INDUSTRIES (CBI, Euronext Growth Paris: FR00140062P9 – ALCBI) is announcing that it has convened an extraordinary general meeting for December 29, 2021 concerning a stock split and the possibility to carry out a capital increase through the incorporation of reserves with a view to distributing free shares. These resolutions are intended to enable the Company to support the liquidity of CBI’s share and the diversity of its shareholding structure.
The first resolution proposes to divide the par value of the shares comprising CBI’s capital by 10. Based on a current par value of €1.00 and 19,337,000 shares, the par value would be changed to €0.10 and 19,337,000 shares. Each shareholder with one CBI share would therefore own 10 CBI shares. CBI’s capital would remain unchanged at €19,337,000. This stock split will be carried out as soon as possible following its approval by the general meeting, based on a schedule that will be announced in due course in coordination with Euronext.
The second resolution concerns a delegation of authority for 26 months that would authorize the Board of Directors to decide to increase the Company’s share capital with a distribution of bonus shares, for a maximum nominal amount of €5m, through the incorporation of reserves. If applicable, this delegation may be used in full or in part at a time determined by the Board of Directors in view of market conditions, the amount of reserves available to CBI at the time, and an intentionally cautious approach to payouts.
The meeting notice, serving as the notice to attend the general meeting, is published in the French official gazette (BALO) on November 24, 2021. It is available on www.cbicorp.io under “Investors” and at https://ebalo.journal-officiel.gouv.fr/ebalo/plugins/ebalo/annonce/2104379.html. For reference, CBI’s share is listed on the Euronext Growth Paris EI compartment, reserved for qualified investors. In the context of the Covid-19 epidemic, the conditions for taking part in the general meeting on December 29, 2021 could be amended depending on changes in the health and/or legal requirements. Shareholders are therefore invited to regularly consult the dedicated General Meeting section on the Company’s website.
