The transaction will have an immediate accretive effect for all shareholders and is accounting-neutral on the Group’s consolidated equity. Henceforth the share capital will comprise 11,024,853 shares.
The group notes that on 1 October 2008, the AMF (French markets authority) granted the shareholder concert party an exemption from the requirement to file a draft public offer because of the accretive effect on its shareholding.

Linedata Services will publish its first-quarter 2009 revenue figures on 29 April 2009 after close of the market.
