The company is expecting to complete the transaction in 2Q20 and intends to host a Capital Markets event in Paris, France, for Technip Energies before completion of the spin-off.
In addition to this, TechnipFMC also announced that the EU Prospectus for the spin-off of Technip Energies will now include audited IFRS financial statements for Technip Energies for each of the fiscal years ended 31 December 2016 through 2019. In order to provide financial statements for the full year 2019, which will afford greater visibility into recent historical performance, TechnipFMC anticipates the release of its EU Prospectus after its annual filings (Annual Report on Form 10-K and U.K. Annual Report).
In addition to the approval of the EU Prospectus by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM), the company claims that the successful completion of the planned spin-off also remains subject to general market conditions, regulatory approvals, and final board approval. While awaiting receipt of all final approvals, TechnipFMC and its employees will remain focused on providing operational excellence and world class service to its clients.
