Boulogne-Billancourt, France, October 9, 2018 after the market close

Cegedim announces the setting up of a new financing structure for a total amount of €200m, consisting of a €135m Euro PP bond issue with a maturity of 7 years, and a €65m syndicated loan with a tenor of 5years plus one year extension option.

The €135m Euro Private Placement, arranged by ODDO BHF, allows Cegedim to extend its debt maturity profile and diversify its financing sources. Proceeds from the bond issue, maturing in October 2025, were used to refinance the existing syndicated loan. This transaction is combined with a syndicated loan of €65m maturing in October 2023 from the Group's long-standing banks.

Jean-Claude Labrune, Chief Executive Officer of Cegedim, welcomes the success of this transaction, which demonstrates the Group's attractiveness to leading institutional investors and strengthens its relationship with its historical banks. "This transaction allows to optimize Cegedim's financial structure, with proceeds from the bond issue enabling to refinance all Group's debt with a long-term financing base."

Cegedim was advised by Linklaters, and Oddo BHF, arranger of the Euro PP bond issue, was advised by White & Case.
