The offer consists of about 255 million euros of newly issued shares and about 355 million euros existing shares sold by Atos.

Subscriptions for the French public offering will close on June 25 at 1700 Paris time, subscriptions for the international offering on June 26at 1300. Pricing for the global offering is expected to take place on June 26. Trading on Euronext Paris is expected to start on June 27.
