The funds invested into Rubis shares through FCPE Rubis Avenir will be available at the end of a 5-year lock-up period, except in the case of an early release.

At the end of the subscription, Rubis confirmed that 451 employees, or 76.05% of the eligible employees, thus subscribed to the capital increase, in the amount of €3,558,005.76. 

64,644 new shares (or 0.15% of outstanding shares) were issued on May 24, 2016.

The new shares are eligible for dividends as of January 1, 2016 and are considered to be of the same rank as existing shares. Their acceptance for trading on the Euronext Paris market was requested as from their issuance, on a second listing line, in comparison with the existing shares.
