As Planned, the Accelerated Safeguard Plan Will Be Presented to the Commercial Court in the Next Few Days

Resumption of Trading on 29 June at Market Opening

Regulatory News:

The court-appointed administrators have transmitted to the ORPEA Group (Paris:ORP) the results of the vote of all classes of affected parties on the draft accelerated safeguard plan, details of which are set out in the annex to this press release.

Of the 10 classes of parties affected, 6 approved the draft accelerated Safeguard Plan by the required majority (more than 2/3), 3 others, including the shareholders, supported the draft accelerated Safeguard Plan by more than 50% and the OCEANE class voted 49.2% in favor of the plan (50,8% against).

In the coming days, pursuant to the provisions of article L. 626-32 of the French Commercial Code, the Company will apply to the Nanterre Commercial Court for approval of the accelerated safeguard plan through a cross-class cram down.

If the Court considers that the legal conditions are met, ORPEA could thus finalize its financial restructuring in the second half of 2023, in accordance with its corporate interest. The Company will then be able to pursue the implementation of its Refoundation Plan.

Insofar as the accelerated safeguard plan has not been approved by all classes of affected parties, and assuming that the plan is approved by the Court, existing shareholders should hold, after completion of the capital increases and in the absence of reinvestment, around 0.04% of the Company's share capital. The theoretical value of the shares would be around €0.02.

Under these conditions, the main characteristics of the capital increases implemented as part of the financial restructuring plan will be as follows (for further details on the terms and conditions of the capital increases, investors are invited to refer to the appendix to the Company's press release dated 26 May 2023):

1. The Equitisation Capital Increase

  • Capital increase with shareholders' preferential subscription rights, guaranteed by the Unsecured Creditors subscribing, where applicable, by offsetting their claims
  • Issue price : €0.0601 per new share
  • Number of issued shares : 64,629,157,149

  • Issue price : €0.0178 per new share
  • Number of issued shares : 65,173,064,696

3. Rights Issue

  • Issue price: €0.0133 per new share
  • Number of issued shares : 29,324,787,415
  • Amount (share premium included) : €390,019,673
  • Percentage of ownership of existing shareholders who do not contribute : 0.04%

Following the suspension of trading on 28 June 2023, all financial instruments issued by ORPEA S.A. (shares, debt securities and related instruments) will resume trading on Thursday 29 June 2023 at market opening.

1 The maximum total amount (including share premium) of this capital increase will be equal to (x) the total principal amount in euros of the Company's unsecured indebtedness (i.e. 3,822,719,247 euros) plus (y) 70% of the total amount of accrued but not due interest on the unsecured debt on or before 24 March 2023 (excluded), i.e. 24,871,699 euros and (z) the amount of accrued or due interest on Unsecured Debt between 24 March 2023 (included) and the date of adoption of the Accelerated Safeguard Plan by the Specialized Commercial Court of Nanterre (included), i.e. 38,614,929 euros. Assuming that the Accelerated Safeguard Plan is adopted by the Specialized Commercial Court of Nanterre on 24 July 2023 (i.e. at the end of the 4-month period following the date of the judgment opening the Accelerated Safeguard Procedure on 24 March 2023), the maximum total amount of the capital increase would therefore be 3,886,205,875 euros.

2 This priority right will only benefit shareholders existing prior to the launch of the Equitisation Capital Increase and will therefore not benefit unsecured creditors who may become shareholders of the Company following the Equitisation Capital Increase.
