Public offer materials

On 17 December 2017, Thales and Gemalto jointly announced that they had reached an agreement on a recommended all-cash offer for all issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Gemalto, for a price of €51 per ordinary share cum dividend. Gemalto's board of directors unanimously recommends and fully supports the offer. 

The offer document, which sets forth the terms, conditions and consequences of the offer, has been approved by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets ("AFM") and was published on 27 March 2018. It can be downloaded below. 

The extended acceptance period runs from 9:00 hours CET on 28 March to 17:40 hours CET on 15 August 2018, unless extended. Thales will request an exemption from the AFM to further extend the acceptance period beyond 15 August 2018. Subject to receipt of such exemption, the acceptance period will be extended until such time as Thales, in consultation with Gemalto, will reasonably believe is necessary to allow the offer condition relating to the regulatory clearances to be satisfied. The completion of the offer and payment of the offer price to shareholders who tendered their shares into the offer is expected in the course of the second half of 2018., provided that all offer conditions are satisfied or waived. The offer document contains important information that should be carefully read before a decision is made to tender shares into the offer​.
