Groupe Casino: Communication by the Casino group

Communication by the Casino group

Paris, 11 December 2023

Following the press release issued yesterday by Companhia Brasileira De Distribuição (GPA), Casino group acknowledges that it is aware that GPA has initiated preliminary work efforts towards a potential primary equity offering as part of its plan to optimize its capital structure. GPA has convened an extraordinary general meeting on 11 January 2024 to deliberate on, among other matters, an increase in the Company’s authorized capital of up to 800 million common shares and the proposal by GPA’s management, with Casino’s assent, to elect a new slate for the board of directors, conditioned upon the closing of the potential offering, in order to conform with the expected dilution of Casino’s equity interest in the Company. In the event of the completion of this project, upon the investiture of such new slate for the board of directors, Casino would keep a non-controlling stake in GPA.
