Lanson-BCC is announcing that the company's combined general meeting has today approved all of the resolutions put forward by the Board of Directors. They include the change of corporate name, as well as the free allocation of one new share for 10 existing shares held.


LANSON-BCC, NEW NAME


The combined general meeting adopted the resolution to change the company's corporate name to "Lanson-BCC" with a majority, effective immediately.
This new name, adopted at a time when Champagne LANSON is celebrating its 250th anniversary, will help give the Group a name that is more in keeping with its profile, its rationale and its ambitions.


ONE BONUS SHARE AWARDED FOR EVERY 10 EXISTING SHARES HELD


The combined general meeting also decided to award one new share for every 10 existing shares held, with this measure intended to thank shareholders for their loyalty.
In this way, following the stock warrants exercised since March 15th, 2010, 507,136 new shares will be created, representing 9% of the new capital.
Form of new shares: the new shares will be held on a registered or bearer basis, as chosen by subscribers.
In accordance with the legal and regulatory provisions in force, the rights of holders will be represented by a registration in their name:

  • With the issuer for pure registered securities and, for those who wish to do so, with the authorized intermediary of their choice for administered registered securities,
  • With the authorized intermediary of their choice for bearer securities.

Allocation rights: entitlements forming fractions of shares will not be eligible for trading or transfer (FR0004027068); the corresponding shares will be sold; the sums from such sales will be allocated to the holders of the rights within 30 days of the whole number of shares attributable to them being registered in their account.

Allocation requests will be received at no cost from July 7th to 15th, 2010 (inclusive) by CM-CIC Securities, Département Emetteur, 6 avenue de Provence, 75009 Paris, France (Euroclear affiliated member 025).


These shares will be registered in the shareholders' accounts on July 19th, 2010 and as of their creation will be fully assimilated with existing shares, will have the same entitlements and will be subject to all the provisions from the bylaws and the decisions taken by general meetings.


These 507,136 shares will be subject to a request for admission on Eurolist Paris Compartment B.
