TechnipFMC Announces Voluntary Delisting from Euronext Paris

NEWCASTLE & HOUSTON, January 10, 2022

TechnipFMC plc (NYSE: FTI) (PARIS: FTI) (the “Company”) announced today that following a comprehensive review of its strategic objectives, it is proceeding with the voluntary delisting of its shares (ISIN: GB00BDSFG982) from Euronext Paris.

Following the partial spin-off of Technip Energies and the progressive selldown of the Company’s remaining ownership stake, the Company has refocused as a pure-play technology and services provider to the traditional and new energies industries. It now has its principal place of business in Houston. These actions have led the Board of Directors to conclude that a single listing on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) is more consistent with the Company’s strategic refocus and shareholder base, and allows the Company to better align with its most appropriate peer set. In addition, the Company expects that the savings in costs, administrative requirements, and managerial time required to maintain a dual listing can be redirected to other initiatives that contribute to shareholder value.

The delisting has been approved by the Board of Directors of Euronext Paris SA and the Company’s shares will remain listed on the NYSE under the symbol “FTI”.

The holders of TechnipFMC shares traded on Euronext and held through the facilities of Euroclear France (the “TFMC Euronext Shares”) will have the following options:

  • keep their TFMC Euronext Shares, which they will be able to trade on Euronext Paris until the day before the delisting date and on the NYSE thereafter through the facilities of The Depositary Trust Company (“DTC”), subject to the terms applied by their financial intermediary and their custody arrangements; or
  • participate in a voluntary sales facility (described below) to sell all or part of their TFMC Euronext Shares, in accordance with the rules and regulations of Euronext Paris.

For the avoidance of doubt, holders of TFMC Euronext Shares will be able to trade on Euronext Paris until February 17, 2022 (the last trading date prior to the delisting).

Procedure of the Voluntary Sales Facility

Shareholders who wish to sell their TFMC Euronext Shares utilizing the voluntary sales facility should request that their financial intermediaries deliver their TFMC Euronext Shares to Société Générale, acting as centralizing agent, at any time from January 12, 2022 to January 31, 2022 (inclusive).

TFMC Euronext Shares delivered to Société Générale will be sold on the NYSE as from February 8, 2022 at the market price prevailing at the time of sale.

Société Générale will calculate the average sales price of TFMC Euronext Shares sold during the sales period and transfer the sale proceeds (which will be converted into euros from U.S. dollars by Société Générale) to the participating shareholders once it receives the funds.

The Company will pay the fees for the centralization and the brokerage fee related to the sale of TFMC Euronext Shares delivered to Société Générale as part of the voluntary sales facility.

This voluntary sales facility procedure is also described in a Euronext notice to be published on January 11, 2022.

Please note that no guarantee can be given by the Company or by Société Générale as to the price at which the TFMC Euronext Shares tendered pursuant to the voluntary sales facility will actually be sold. This process is being provided solely as an accommodation to holders of TFMC Euronext Shares.

Shareholders may decide not to participate in the voluntary sales facility or may decide not to take any action, in which case no guarantee can be given to them on the terms that will be applied by their financial intermediary after the delisting. Shareholders are urged to consult their own investment advisors before making a decision to participate or not in this process.

The calendar of the voluntary sales facility and the delisting of the Company described above is summarized as follows (it being specified that the Company reserves the right to amend this calendar):
