For Paul Hermelin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capgemini Group: “This year, we have reported steady improvement in our performance, quarter after quarter, a trend that should continue in Q4. Our portfolio of strategic offerings generates a growing share of our bookings, demonstrating our ability to anticipate the evolution of client demand, particularly in innovation and cost rationalization.” At the end of July, Capgemini announced measures aimed at optimizing its balance sheet and, in particular, the intention to allocate up to €400 million to neutralize part of the potential dilution caused by the OCEANE convertible bonds due January 1, 2014 . In this context, Capgemini repurchased 14 280 3052 OCEANE, i.e. 85% of its OCEANE convertible bonds for €687 million. This transaction was funded from Group cash, which benefited concomitantly from €400 million in proceeds from the issue of ORNANE (convertible bonds). In line with its initial commitment given in July, Capgemini will assign around €100 million to further neutralizing dilution in the coming months.
