Meyreuil (France), October 17, 2018. A settlement agreement was signed on October 16, 2018 between the company Global EcoPower (Euronext Growth - FR0011289198 - ALGEP) and some of its significant non-executive shareholders, under the aegis of the Commercial Court of Aix en Provence, ending difficulties relating in particular to the application of the rules on shareholder identification and transparency.
In addition, the execution of the "Share Transfer Agreement" entered into on September 28, 2018 between these significant non-executive shareholders and new shareholders was subject, as a condition precedent, to the signature of the settlement agreement (read 3rd October 2018 press release). As this signature has taken place, the "Share Transfer Agreement" is now effective. The amount of the sale concerns 38.55% of the share capital, i.e. 2,543,300 shares.
Jean-Marie SANTANDER, President and CEO: "After more than ten months of tension and intense proceedings, the Court of Aix-en-Provence succeeded in reconciling Global EcoPower and the transferors referred to below, within the framework of a "conciliation protocol by transactional means". I would particularly like to thank the Court of Aix-en-Provence for its patience and professionalism in bringing this conciliation to a successful conclusion, which required four meetings at the Court. Global EcoPower will find the serenity necessary for its development. I am particularly pleased with this agreement and welcome the new shareholders. Finally, the group I chair will now be able to develop in a calm atmosphere. All employees are also pleased with this positive and constructive outcome for the Group".
