Worldline - 2020 Universal Registration Document

GROUP OVERVIEW Group presentation

Internal reorganization project A.5.3.4 On April 9, 2020, Worldline and Worldline France SAS entered into a contribution agreement in accordance with the regime for spin-offs ( soumis au r├ęgime des scissions ) whereby Worldline will contribute to Worldline France SAS, upon satisfaction of customary condition precedent (of which approval by shareholders at the next General Meeting), the assets and liabilities comprising the rights and obligations relating to its operational and commercial activities, as well as their associated support functions, that constitute an autonomous branch of activity. All terms and conditions of the contribution are specified in the contribution agreement that will be available at the registered office and on the website of the Company (worldline.com).

This project, which is part of an internal reorganization of the businesses of the Group, would therefore allow concentrating operational and commercial activities within a dedicated legal entity, to separate operational and support functions of the Group and thus ease in particular the audit of Worldline. This modification of the structure of the Group organization is considered useful because the separation of these activities within Worldline would make it easier and more immediate to the reading of results of the Group activities in particular for investors. It is recalled, as the case may be, that the contribution is an intra-group operation realized by Worldline for the benefit of one of its wholly-onwed subsidiary and that it will not affect the shareholders of the Company.
