Regulated Information

Paris, 16th August 2022

(In accordance with Article 5 of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 on Market Abuse Regulation and Article 3(3) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 through regulatory technical standards concerning the conditions applicable to buyback programs and stabilization measures)

Societe Generale launched, on Monday 8th August 2022, an ordinary share buyback program for EUR 914.1 million for the purpose of shares cancellation. This buyback will be carried out by the end of the year.

This buyback has been preceded by a buyback of 1,000 ordinary shares for the purpose of exchange against Credit du Nord shares hold by minority shareholders of Credit du Nord subsidiaries (due to the merger of these subsidiaries by Credit du Nord) within the framework of the Credit du Nord / Societe Generale merger as of 1st January 2023.

These share buybacks will then be followed by a share buyback of 2.7 million ordinary shares in order to cover and honor the free shares allocation plan for the benefit of Group employees and executive directors.

Societe Generale received all necessary authorizations from supervisory authorities. These buybacks will be carried out in compliance with the authorizations provided by the General Meeting of 17th May 2022, in particular regarding the maximum price, as well as in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation. They will be performed on the trading platforms on which Societe Generale shares are listed for trading or are traded, including the regulated market of Euronext Paris.

The liquidity contract concluded with Rothschild has also temporarily been suspended throughout the buyback period.
