The first employee stock purchase plan to be offered by AREVA since its establishment to the group’s employees in France, Germany and the United States is a success.
Offered in France, Germany and the United States, more than 14,600 employees – nearly 36% of all staff – took part in the program.
The average subscription exceeded 2,200 euros.
In France, more than 39% of the workforce will become share owners of the group.
Employees will then hold approximately 1.2% of the group’s share capital.
“I am pleased by the success of this program,” said AREVA CEO Luc Oursel. “It shows that the employees have confidence in the company, in the ACTION 2016 plan, and in the development of our nuclear and renewable operations.”
