Year-End Closing Postponed by 24 Hours

Press release

AREVA SA’s Board of Directors, which met yesterday under the presidency of Philippe Varin, examined the company’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2015.

As AREVA has just found an agreement with six lending banks for a bridge loan of 1.1 billion euros in order to ensure the company’s liquidity for the 2016 fiscal year, the Board has decided to delay for 24 hours the year-end closing in order to finalize the technical documentation associated with this financing.

The publication of the 2015 results has consequently been postponed by 24 hours.
