Paris (France), September 29, 2022 – Following a market rumor, Atos confirms that on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, the Group received an unsolicited letter of intent from onepoint, in association with the British private equity fund ICG, related to the potential acquisition of the “Evidian” perimeter, for an indicative enterprise value of €4.2 billion.
Following the thorough examination of this preliminary and non-binding mark of interest, and upon the recommendation of its ad hoc committee, the Board of Directors has convened and unanimously concluded that it is not in the interest of the Company and its stakeholders.
