On Thursday, Clariane unveiled the details of its capital increase of around 237 million euros, intended in particular to reduce its debt, an operation marked by a substantial discount and high dilution, which caused the share to fall on the stock market.

This capital increase, which follows a reserved capital increase of 92.1 million euros, is part of the plan to strengthen the financial structure launched last year by the retirement home operator.

The capital increase with preferential subscription rights will be carried out on the basis of three new shares for two existing shares, explains the former Korian in a press release.

The subscription price has been set at 1.11 euros, representing a 65% discount to Tuesday's closing price.

As an indication, a shareholder holding 1% of the capital and not taking part in the increase would find himself diluted to 0.40% after the issue of the new shares.

On the Paris Bourse, Clariane shares lost over 12% on Thursday morning, posting one of the biggest declines on the Paris market.

At this price level, the group is valued at around 413 million euros.
