BIC RECEIVES AN OFFER FOR THE ACQUISITION OF BIC SPORT

BIC announces today that it has received an offer from Tahe Outdoors to acquire BIC Sport, its water sports subsidiary, for a total Enterprise Value between 6 and 9 million euros, contingent upon BIC Sport's future financial results. The offer was presented to BIC Sport Works Council.

This transaction, expected to close by 31-December-2018, is consistent with BIC's strategy to focus on its three categories (Stationery, Lighters, and Shavers) in order to reinforce its leadership position in its categories around the world.

Founded in 1979, BIC Sport pioneered the windsurf industry and progressively diversified its activities to include surfing, kayaking, junior racing dinghies and stand up paddleboarding. Headquartered in Vannes (France), BIC Sport sells its products in more than 90 countries, with strong positions in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.

Tahe Outdoors is one of the largest and fastest growing European manufacturers of paddle sport and kite surfing equipment. Established in 1989, Tahe Outdoors sells its products in 50 countries and manufactures in France, Germany, and Estonia. By leveraging the two companies' strengths, including strong brands, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, and solid technological know-how, this transaction will lead to the creation of a recognized worldwide leader in water sports.

Due to BIC Sport's proposed divestiture, BIC may discontinue its writing instrument manufacturing activities located at the Vannes' industrial site. As a result, a reorganization project was presented today to the BIC Ecriture 2000 factory Central Works Council (Marne la Vallée and Vannes facilities). The project specifies closing the BIC Ecriture 2000-Vannes' facility and transferring its current production activities to the BIC Ecriture 2000-Marne la Vallée (France) and BIC Bizerte (Tunisia) sites.

This project is consistent with BIC's Stationery Operational Excellence strategy, aimed at refocusing French factories on large-scale production and specializing the Bizerte factory for both high complexity production for the European market and on mass production for Africa and the Middle East.
