TOUAX S.C.A. (the "Company") announced today the success of the capital increase without preferential subscription rights of shareholders and with a priority subscription period for shareholders (the "Capital Increase") which raised €11.2 million as a result of the exercise in full of the extension clause.

1,133,575 new shares were demanded, representing about 116% of the initial number of shares offered through the Capital Increase excluding the extension clause. The demand will therefore only be partly allotted, for a total of 1,127,731 new shares.

As was announced in the securities note for the Capital Increase, the Majority Group comprising Société Holding de Gestion et de Location (represented by Mr Raphaël Walewski), Société Holding de Gestion et de Participation (represented by Mr Fabrice Walewski) and Mr Alexandre Walewski maintained their stake in the Company's capital at about 31%.

The gross proceeds of the Capital Increase, including the issue premium, amounted to €11,198,369 and resulted in the issue of 1,127,731 new shares with a price of €9.93 per share.

The Company's share capital after the Capital Increase amounted to €56,092,376, divided into 7,011,547 shares with a par value of €8.

Settlement and admission to trading of the new shares on the Euronext Paris regulated market are scheduled for 28 July 2016. The new shares will be immediately fungible with the existing shares of the Company already traded on the Euronext Paris regulated market, and will be negotiable from that date on the same listing line as the existing shares of the Company (ISIN: FR0000033003).

The Capital Increase was led by Gilbert Dupont which acts as Lead Manager and Book runner.
