Launch of the Share Buy Back Program

Accor S.A. has announced on February 27, 2018 that it intended to implement, over a two-year period, a share buyback program that would cover up to 10% of its share capital, i.e. 1,350 million euros based on the market capitalization as of end of February 2018.
In this context, the Group has signed today with an investment services provider a share buy-back agreement to implement a first tranche of this share buyback program.
According to this agreement, Accor undertakes to acquire Accor shares for a maximum amount of 350 million euros.
The purchase period provided in the agreement shall start on July 30, 2018 and end on January 31, 2019, without being shorter than 3 months. The average price per share shall be determined on the basis of the arithmetic mean of the volume-weighted average prices during the duration of the agreement. This price shall not exceed the maximum price of 70 euros set by the Combined Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting of April 20, 2018.
In this context, the Group has decided to suspend the execution of its liquidity agreement for the duration of the program.
