Continuation of the global Employee Share Subscription Plan: in parallel with the French employe shareholding plan implemented again this year, the Board of Directors decided to continue in 2024 its capital increase program reserved to employees working for Danone foreign subsidiaries or in a situation of international mobility within the Group, launched in 2019. Under this program, eligible employees of Danone foreign entities were able to subscribe to new shares with a 30% discount of the reference price. The subscription period took place in March 2024. The capital increase reserved for international employees was opened to around 85% of Danone employees worldwide, working in 47 different countries. The new shares will be listed under the same code as the existing Danone shares (ISIN code: FR0000120644) and will be fungible with those shares from their admission to trading.
