Gemalto in the process of reviewing the unsolicited and conditional proposal by Atos

AMSTERDAM, Dec 12, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - The board of Gemalto N.V. (the Company) has noted the announcement last evening of the unsolicited and conditional proposal by Atos SE (Atos) to make a cash offer for all issued and outstanding shares of the Company at an offer price of EUR 46 (cum dividend in cash) (the Proposal).

On November 28, 2017 Atos submitted its Proposal, valid until December 15, 2017 to the board of the Company. The Company subsequently informed Atos that it would carefully review the Proposal and respond to it before such date.

The board of the Company will continue its process of reviewing and considering the Proposal together with its financial and legal advisors in accordance with its fiduciary duties to determine the best course of action in the interest of the Company, its business, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders.

There is no certainty that the Proposal will lead to a recommended firm offer for the Company.

The Company has retained Deutsche Bank and J.P. Morgan as financial advisors and Allen & Overy LLP as legal advisor.

Further announcements will be made in due course once the board has completed its review of the Proposal.
