IMPORTANT NOTICE

By reading the following communication, you agree to be bound by the following limitations and qualifications:

An offer of securities in the United States pursuant to a business combination transaction will only be made, as may be required, through a prospectus which is part of an effective registration statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Shareholders of Peugeot S.A. (“PSA”) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (“FCA”) who are U.S. persons or are located in the United States are advised to read the registration statement when and if it is declared effective by the SEC because it will contain important information relating to the proposed transaction. A registration statement on Form F-4 in connection with the combination of FCA and PSA through a cross-border merger was filed with the SEC on July 24, 2020 and amended on September 28, 2020, but has not yet been declared effective.  You may obtain copies of all documents filed with the SEC regarding the proposed transaction, documents incorporated by reference, and FCA’s SEC filings at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. In addition, the effective registration statement will be made available for free to shareholders in the United States.



Groupe PSA announces the successful completion of the sale of part of its stake in Faurecia

Peugeot S.A. (“Groupe PSA”) announces the successful completion of the sale of 9,663,000 Faurecia shares, representing approximately 7% of the share capital of Faurecia, via an institutional private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding.

The proceeds from the transaction amount to approximately €308 million.

Following the placement, Groupe PSA will hold approximately 39% of Faurecia’s share capital.

The cash proceeds from this disposal are expected to be distributed to the Stellantis shareholders along with the distribution in kind of the remaining c. 39% stake in Faurecia, as already announced on 14th September 2020, promptly after the completion of the merger and subject to approval by the Stellantis Board and shareholders.

Groupe PSA has granted to the Bookrunners a 90-day lock-up, subject to certain usual exceptions (including the aforementioned distribution in kind).

This disposal is one of the steps as may be necessary to ensure that Stellantis does not acquire control of Faurecia, consistent with the terms of the original Combination Agreement. This is expected to facilitate the securing of the necessary regulatory approvals in relation to the merger.

The settlement and delivery of such sale is expected to occur on November 2, 2020.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any securities, and the offer of Faurecia shares by Groupe PSA does not constitute a public offering.
