Technip Energies Announces Launch of Share Buy-Back Program

February 29, 2024

Technip Energies (PARIS:TE) (the “Company”), a leading Engineering & Technology company for the Energy Transition, today announces the launch of a share buy-back program of up to €100 million (the “Share Buy-back Program”), with up to €70 million to be used to purchase common shares for cancellation and up to €30 million to be used to fulfill the Company’s obligations under equity compensation plans. The maximum number of shares that can be acquired under the Share Buy-back Program is 5 million shares. The Share Buy-back Program is to be carried out until December 31, 2024.

The Share Buy-back Program was decided by the Company’s Board of Directors and will be implemented in accordance with the provisions of article 5 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052.

The Share Buy-back Program will be carried out pursuant to the authorization to repurchase shares granted by the Company’s shareholders at the 2023 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) on May 10, 2023. The shareholders resolution authorized the Company to acquire during a period of 18 months up to 10% of the Company’s issued share capital at prices ranging from the nominal value of the shares up to 110% of the market price of the shares, for purposes of, amongst other topics, the return of capital to shareholders, to carry out repurchases under the Company’s share liquidity program, and/or, to the extent such authorization is required, to fulfil the Company’s obligations under its equity compensation plans.

The Company intends to propose to the Company’s shareholders at the 2024 AGM to renew the repurchase authorization. The proposed 2024 authorization will provide for the same terms as the 2023 AGM repurchase authorization (i.e. validity of 18 months, for the same purposes, with a 10% of the share capital limit for repurchases). Following renewal of the repurchase authorization, share repurchases under the Share Buy-back Program will be carried out pursuant to the authorization granted at the 2024 AGM. If the repurchase authorization is not renewed, the Share Buy-back Program will continue under the 2023 AGM repurchase authorization until November 9, 2024.  

On February 28, 2024, the Company held approximately 4.4 million treasury shares, representing approximately 2.5 percent of its issued share capital. Such shares are currently being held for purposes of fulfilling the Company’s obligations under its equity compensation plans.

The Company will appoint a broker to execute the Share Buy-back Program in accordance with all applicable regulations. The broker will make decisions relating to the repurchase of Company shares independently, including with respect to the timing of any repurchases, and all repurchases effected will be in compliance with daily limits on prices and volumes.

The price paid for any share repurchased pursuant to the Share Buy-back Program will be subject to a maximum amount equal to the greater of (i) the price of the last independent trade and (ii) the highest current independent purchase bid on the regulated market of Euronext Paris. It will be subject to all other terms and conditions that may be agreed with the broker.  

The actual timing, number and value of Company shares repurchased under the Share Buy-back Program will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions, general business conditions and applicable legal requirements. The €100 million allocated to the Share Buy-back Program does not include amounts to cover ancillary costs. The Company is not obligated to carry out the Share Buy-back Program, and, if commenced, the Share Buy-back Program may be suspended or discontinued at any time, for any reason and without previous notice, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. All repurchased shares will be held as treasury stock unless cancelled.

The Company will issue the required press releases that will disclose the share repurchases effected pursuant to the Share Buy-back Program, as required by applicable laws and regulations, and will make the necessary regulatory filings. The press releases and the transactions carried out will also be published on the Company’s website at https://investors.technipenergies.com/financial-information/notice-trading-own-shares. The costs that the Company may incur in connection with the repurchase of the shares pursuant to the Share Buy-back Program will depend on the price and the terms on which actual purchases are made.
