GREAT SUCCESS OF THE 133.6 MILLION EUROS CAPITAL INCREASE
Rubis announces today the successful subscription of its share capital increase with preferential subscription rights, whose subscription period closed on June 4th 2015
Total demand amounted to 418.8 million euros, 285.2 million euros higher than the targeted amount, which represents a subscription ratio of 313%.
2 700 918 new shares have been subscribed on an irreducible basis, representing 97% of the new shares to be issued. Demand on a reducible basis covered 6 024 162 shares and will be served on the basis of 83 174 new shares. Upon completion of the capital increase, 2 784 092 new shares will be issued at a subscription price of 48 euros per share.
The settlement and delivery and the admission to trading of the new shares on Euronext Paris are expected to take place on June 15th, 2015, on the same listing line than the existing shares (under the ISIN code FR0000121253). The new shares will carry current dividend rights. As from their issue, they will be assimilated to existing shares and will entitle the holder to the same rights as those attached to existing shares.
At the end of this transaction, Rubis share capital will be made up of 41 761 384 shares.
The capital increase is intended to partially refinance Rubis’ recently announced acquisitions and ongoing investments which amount to approximately 600 million euros of committed undertakings. These acquisitions and developments have already been financed by the Group’s cash flow, confirmed medium-term credit facilities and available cash. However, in order to respect its financial discipline and to provide financial flexibility to seize new expansion opportunities, Rubis has decided to reinforce its financial resources through this capital increase, the proceeds of which will represent approximately 20% of its commitments. Following the proposed transaction, Rubis will have a robust financial position, enabling it to seize new opportunities.
Rubis would like to thank its shareholders for their renewed trust and the new resources thus obtained, to ensure the pursuit of the company’s development.

CACEIS Corporate Trust, 14 rue Rouget de Lisle, 92862 Issy les Moulineaux Cedex 9, has acted as the centralization agent of the capital increase.
