TechnipFMC confirms dates for split into two companies
04 February 2021
TechnipFMC plc today announced the timing and details regarding its previously announced separation into two industry-leading, independent, publicly traded companies: TechnipFMC, a fully integrated technology and services provider; and Technip Energies, a leading engineering and technology player. The transaction is structured as a spin-off of a majority stake in TechnipFMC’s Technip Energies segment in the form of a share dividend pursuant to which holders of TechnipFMC shares will receive shares of Technip Energies.
Subject to satisfaction of customary conditions and receipt of regulatory approvals, the last day of trading of TechnipFMC shares that include the right to receive Technip Energies shares on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Euronext Paris stock exchange will be February 12, 2021 and February 15, 2021, respectively. TechnipFMC shares would then commence trading on a standalone basis on NYSE and Euronext Paris on February 16, 2021.
TechnipFMC has established February 16, 2021 as the distribution date and 5:00 p.m., New York time, on February 17, 2021 as the record date. On the distribution date, TechnipFMC shareholders on the record date will be eligible to receive, based on the expected distribution ratio, one Technip Energies share for every five TechnipFMC shares.
Technip Energies will become an independent public company and no longer part of TechnipFMC at 9:00 a.m. CET on the ex-date, February 16, 2021, which is the dividend detachment date in respect of the distribution of the Technip Energies shares. Accordingly, Technip Energies shares will commence trading on an if-and-when-delivered (conditional upon delivery) basis on Euronext Paris at market open at 9:00 a.m. CET on February 16, 2021, with delivery on February 23, 2021.
