Crossing the Thresholds

Article 10 of bioMérieux’s bylaws requires individuals or legal entities, acting alone or in concert, who directly or indirectly own 1% of the Company’s capital or voting rights, and thereafter for each additional 1%, to report

  • to the Company (bioMérieux – Investor Relations Department – Chemin de l’Orme – 69280 Marcy l’Etoile - France)
  • by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt
  • within five trading days of the date the threshold was crossed
  • the total number of shares and voting rights held, as well as the number of securities carrying an immediate or future entitlement to shares and the potential voting rights attached to them.

The same obligation applies whenever ownership of shares or voting rights falls below each of the aforementioned thresholds.

The complete obligations relating to threshold disclosure are explained in the 2015 Registration Document – Section 21.2.7
