AVAILABILITY OF THE 2019 UNIVERSAL REGISTRATION DOCUMENT
Paris, March 26, 2020 - Eurazeo's 2019 Universal Registration Document was
filed on March 25, 2020 with the French Financial Markets Authority (AMF) under
reference number D.20-0173.
This document was filed against the backdrop of the Covid-19 crisis.
Since the announcement of government measures, the Group has acted to ensure
the protection of its employees and business continuity. All employees,
investment teams, corporate teams and fundraising and fund management teams are
fully mobilized to constantly monitor developments in this crisis and take the
appropriate measures, while continuing the Company's daily activities. All
necessary information reporting tools and decision-making bodies have been
implemented to ensure efficient management. Eurazeo is confident in its ability
to deal with the effects of this crisis.
The beginning of 2020 is marked by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Depending on the duration of lock-down measures and the recovery period,
Eurazeo's portfolio companies could see their revenue, profitability and cash
The fundraising activities of Eurazeo and its subsidiaries are also expected to
slow in 2020, which could impact the revenues of our asset management activity
in the long-term. Finally, planned divestment or investment projects may be
deferred in order to benefit from more favorable market conditions.
For the moment, the impact of this crisis cannot be precisely measured.
However, with a solid cash position, no structural debt on the Eurazeo balance
sheet and a recently renewed 5-year EUR1.5 billion credit facility, the Group
should be equipped to deal with the expected economic slowdown and future
uncertainties, as well as to seize potential opportunities that may arise.
