Become a shareholder
There are two ways to become a SAFRAN shareholder :
- by purchasing bearer shares through your bank or broker. You can purchase shares by placing a buy order with your bank or broker. If you choose this option your shares will be held in “bearer” form either in an ordinary share account or in a “PEA” personal equity plan.
- by contacting SAFRAN’s registered shares department.
You can acquire SAFRAN shares directly in registered form and therefore benefit from all the advantages of this type of shareholding.
There are two ways of holding registered shares.
- In an account managed on behalf of the Company. In this case your shares are registered with SAFRAN and placed in an account in your name with BNP Paribas Securities Services which manages the shares on the Company’s behalf.
- In an account managed by a bank or broker of your choice, in which case your shares are registered with SAFRAN but are held in an account managed by your bank or broker.
If you already hold SAFRAN shares in bearer form you can ask your bank or broker to convert them to either one of the above types of registered shares.
