Elliott Shares Concerns on Capgemini’s Offer for Altran

November 27, 2019 GMT

PARIS & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2019--

Funds advised by Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (together “Elliott”), that collectively hold an economic interest in Altran Technologies SA (“Altran” or the “Company”) of over 10%, today published a presentation outlining its concerns with Capgemini SE’s (“Capgemini”) offer for Altran (“the Offer”).

The presentation includes the following key takeaways:

Elliott shares Altran management’s view on the attractiveness of Altran as a standalone entity, and the tremendous value creation that would accrue from a combination with Capgemini. Unfortunately, Elliott believes the Offer price for Altran shareholders is too low. The widespread scepticism on the level of the Offer from the first day of its announcement has only been compounded by revelations on the failings of the Altran Board in recommending this Offer. Altran shareholders should consider all the facts before deciding whether to endorse such a flawed process, and accept an inadequate price for their shares.

Elliott has previously written to the CEOs and Boards of both Altran and Capgemini to express its views, and has now decided to share its analysis publicly.

Elliott’s presentation, along with additional analysis and perspectives are available to view and download today at www.FairValueforAltran.com. Interested parties are encouraged to visit the website to receive additional information.
