At the same time, the distribution agreement would immediately position our products for success through Amundi's vast and effective distribution channels worldwide. From a financial perspective, the transaction would create value for shareholders, be accretive to earnings and increase our financial flexibility. In addition, having Amundi as a strategic shareholder in our company would strengthen our alignment on the distribution agreement and lay the groundwork for a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.

Benefit for both companies

Furthermore, the addition of Amundi US as the largest investment franchise of Victory Capital would significantly enhance Victory Capital's scale, expand its global customer base and further diversify its investment capabilities, given the broad investment capabilities of Amundi US and its strong long-term investment performance.


The proposed transaction with Victory Capital is a unique opportunity to strengthen our presence in the United States, while simultaneously becoming a strategic shareholder of a renowned asset management company based in the United States, with an excellent track record of growth. It would expand our access to the most performing US investment strategies for the benefit of our global clients. In addition, Amundi would derive considerable benefits from the increased distribution strength in the US market. The combination would provide a significant growth catalyst for Amundi. Overall, it is a compelling proposal for our clients and our employees; it would also be a value-creating deal for our shareholders, with significant prospects for revenue growth and synergies.
