MARKET INFORMATION AND RESUMPTION OF TRADING ON MONDAY, MAY 24, 2021

During the Audit Committee meeting held on May 20, 2021, EY, Solutions 30’s auditor, informed the company that it was not in a position to express an opinion on its 2020 financial statements, without however submitting its final report which incorporates the basis of this impossibility to express an opinion. At the time of this press release, the final audit report was not available.

In the meantime, the Supervisory Board meeting on May 20, 2021, took note of EY’s position and confirmed the main 2020 financial aggregates, already communicated on April 28, 2021, which remain unchanged:

  1. 2020 revenue came in at €819.3 million, up 18%
  2. EBITDA is €106.5 million
  3. Adjusted EBIT is €60.9 million
  4. A net cash surplus of €59.2 million

The group’s net income amounted to €34.5 million, after taking into account a correction proposed by the company and relating to the recognition of an additional tax expense of €2.4 million. In the first quarter of 2021, revenue grew by 19% to €225.2 million.

Action plan

The Management Board, in agreement with the Supervisory Board, has taken the following decisions in the interests of the group and its stakeholders:

  1. The annual general meeting of shareholders is scheduled for June 30, 2021, the regulatory deadline. The preparatory documents for this meeting will therefore be made available to shareholders on May 31st.
  2. The group’s annual report will be published after receiving EY’s final audit report. As a result, the company is still unable to provide a precise timetable for the publication of this report.
  3. The company is considering the possibility of appointing a new auditor.

EY’s assertion that it is not in a position to express an opinion is unusual in that it does not constitute an unqualified, a qualified, or an adverse opinion.

This is a paradoxical situation for Solutions 30 since:

  1. The company has a solid financial structure and a business model that has enabled it to finance its growth, while keeping its level of debt largely under control, as evidenced by its cash position of €159 million in its bank accounts that are carried on its balance sheet at December 31, 2020.
  2. Every year since 2005, the company’s financial statements have received an unqualified opinion from its auditors, in particular from EY for fiscal 2019, the year IFRS was adopted, and for the review of the half-yearly financial statements at June 30, 2020.
  3. The conclusions of the independent investigations carried out by Deloitte and Didier Kling Expertise & Conseil have confirmed the financial information from previous years communicated by the company, in particular its level of growth, its margin rates, the level and nature of its bank debt, the accounting treatment and the level of invoices to be issued, software development costs, negative goodwill, and non-operating income.

Faced with the possible consequences of this disclaimer of opinion, the group decided to refer the matter to the President of the Commercial Court of Bobigny for the purpose of requesting that a conciliator be appointed to assist it and in doing so anticipate the answers or solutions needed to ensure the support of the group’s partners.

At the same time, Solutions 30 has initiated a selection process for investment bankers in order to start searching for reference shareholders. The project, which the company does not intend to comment on beyond its legal obligations to do so, could go as far as a delisting.

A group positioned in high-growth markets

Positioned in fast-growing markets, the group employs 15,700 people in 10 European countries. Its customers include the largest companies and groups in Europe in the telecoms, energy, and IT sectors.  Its job is extremely tangible: deploying optical fiber, connecting homes to the Internet, installing smart electricity meters, or providing IT assistance to individuals and companies.

Building on its recent commercial successes across Europe, notably in Italy and Spain with broadband Internet deployments and in Belgium with the installation of smart meters, Solutions 30 and all its teams are focused on delivering the best service to their customers to support the digital transformation and the energy transition.

Resumption of trading

Despite the absence of an annual financial report and a precise timetable for its publication, the company has asked Euronext Paris to resume the listing of its shares (FR0013379484) as of the opening of trading on Monday, May 24th.

Statenlånar 10 miljarder kronor på 50 år till 1,386% ränta Riksgälden lånadei dag upp 10 miljarder kronor till en ränta på 1,386 procent i den planerade emissionen av en50-årig statsobligation. Den nya obligationen blir det längsta låneti Sveriges statsskuld. Totalt deltog ett 80-tal investerare med en budvolym på drygt 52 miljarder kronor i emissionen som genomfördes som en syndikering.

Med Sveriges starka statsfinanser som grund visar vi än en gång att Riksgälden kan attrahera en bred investerarbas, säger Johan Bergström, tillförordnad upplåningschef på Riksgälden.

Sweden raises SEK 10 billion at 1.386 % with 50-year bond16.6.2021 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Sweden raises SEK 10 billion at1.386%with 50-year bond The Kingdom of Sweden raised SEK 10 billion at a yield of 1.386 per cent in the planned sale of a 50-year government bond. The new bond will be the longest outstanding loan in Sweden’s central government debt. More than 80 investors participated in the syndicated sale with the total bid volume reaching above SEK 52 billion. Syndication means that a group of banks executes the transaction at terms approved by the issuer. The final pricing was fixed at 45 basis points above the yield on the Swedish government bond that was formerly the longest, maturing in just over 24 years. – I am pleased that we were able to extend the Swedish government bond curve to 50 years through this transaction. With Sweden’s strong state finances as a foundation, we have again shown that we can attract a broad investor base, says Johan Bergström, Acting Head of Funding at the Swedish National Debt Office. The Debt Office will gradually build up the outstan

Halmstads Energi och Miljö strengthens power grid for the future – with data analytics16.6.2021 14:23:17 CEST | Press release

Having a security of supply in the power grid of 99,99 percent does not make Halmstads Energi och Miljö AB (HEM) to sit back and relax. Instead, the regional Swedish energy company has declared to make digitalization of the power grid their next step forward. Installing the dInsight Analytics Platform from Dlaboratory Sweden AB (publ) has allowed the company to analyze grid data in-depth and take proactive measures to prevent outages and make grid investments. - The advantage of dLab’s system is that we can find faults in the grid, incidents, and disturbances, before they develop into major outages. This is how we want to work, proactively, before anything has happened, says Jonas Stenberg, electrical engineer at Halmstads Energi och Miljö. The collaboration between HEM and dLab started out as a pilot project in 2018 but by now dLab’s digital solution covers about 70 percent of HEM’s power grid. - It is truly inspiring to learn about HEM’s ambitions within digitalization, and their det
