Ipsen announces it is no longer eligible for the PEA-PME scheme
Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announces that the Group is no longer eligible for the PEA-PME scheme (a French equity savings vehicle for small and mid-sized business enterprises) as of January 1st, 2018, in accordance with Articles L221-32-2 and D221-113-5 of the French Monetary and Financial Code.
As of January 1st, 2018, the Group will no longer comply with the thresholds set by the legislator for eligibility to the PEA-PME scheme, determined on the basis of two fiscal years preceding the acquisition date of the securities i.e. the consolidated financial statements for 2016, in accordance with the French regulations.
Consequently, Ipsen Group’s securities can no longer be included in PEA-PME accounts but are still eligible for the traditional PEA scheme.
