Update on Technicolor Creative Studios’ spin off
Paris (France), May 24th, 2022 – Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH; OTCQX: TCLRY) is today updating the market on the process of its spin off of Technicolor Creative Studios (“TCS”).
The Company continues to make progress on the execution of the spin off and the refinancing announced on February 24th, 2022, and confirms its target to complete the distribution of 65% of TCS shares (the “Distribution”) in the third quarter of 2022. In light of current market conditions and the narrow market window available ahead of the June 30th, 2022 shareholder meeting to execute the debt refinancing, the Company has opted for a more flexible sequencing aiming at optimizing the outcome of the ongoing refinancing process. Over the course of Q3 2022, as the refinancing is secured, the Group will hold a shareholders’ meeting related to the Distribution.
Technicolor SA Shareholders’ meeting to approve the 2021 accounts along with necessary resolutions to run its ordinary operations is still scheduled on June 30th, 2022, whose notice (Avis de réunion) will be made public on May 25th, 2022.
