Paris 10 July 2014 – EnterNext, the Euronext subsidiary dedicated to promoting and growing the market for SMEs[1], today congratulated ATEME, a world specialist in advanced video compression, on the resounding success of its listing in Compartment C of Euronext’s regulated market in Paris.

ATEME designs, develops and markets software solutions for advanced video compression used by television and video broadcast industries worldwide, a market estimated at €900 million in 2013 and projected to rise to €1.4 billion in 2018. The company is a global leader in the industry, and already serves 200 major customers in 60 countries, using its technological edge to deliver exceptionally high-quality images with reduced bandwidth. ATEME was a major contributor to the development of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), the next-generation video compression standard set for use industry-wide, a market offering prospects of robust growth.

ATEME (ticker code: ATEME) was listed through the admission to trading of the 10,077,883 shares making up its equity, including 3,000,000 new shares issued in a Global Offering[2], and 38,391 new shares resulting from convertible bonds. The Global Offering includes full exercise of the extension clause and partial exercise of the over-allotment option.

The Offering was a resounding success with French and international institutional and individual investors. The Global Placement was oversubscribed 1.8 times at the Offer price and the Open Price Public Offering was over-subscribed 3.5 times.

The admission and issue price of ATEME shares was set at €4.44 per share, at the high end of the indicative price range. Market capitalisation was €44.7million on the day of listing. The offering raised €13.3 million altogether.

“We are delighted with ATEME’s successful listing on Euronext, which will raise this innovative company’s visibility with investors while generating the resources it needs to finance its growth. A key player in today’s digital revolution, ATEME will benefit from the stepped-up equity research programme we’ve launched in tandem with Morningstar for EnterNext’s TMT[3] growth stocks,” said Eric Forest, EnterNext Chairman and CEO.

Michel Artières, Chairman and CEO of ATEME, added: “We are delighted with the resounding success of our IPO with institutional and individual investors, and would like to thank the new shareholders who have joined us. Our listing has strengthened our international profile with clients and prospects. The funds raised will help accelerate our deployment and win new market share more quickly, while maintaining our technological edge.”
