Accor S.A.

Etude de l'AG du 30/06/2017

Shareholders are called to approve the first step of the "Booster" plan, i.e. the Asset Contribution by way of spin-off from Accor to its subsidiary AccorInvest. Assets to be sold are part of the HotelInvest activity of Accor.
The ultimate purpose of the internal reorganization is to permit Accor to contribute its AccorInvest shares and the shares to be received in this Contribution-Demerger to AccorInvest Group. The aim is for the majority of AccorInvest Group's shares to be held by outside investors by December 31, 2018 at the latest.
Although some risks have been identified, the global operation seems to be acceptable as it will allow Accor to have sufficient financial flexibility it needs to pursue its ambitious external growth strategy, mainly in Asia.
