París, 26 de marzo de 2007. Tras las manifestaciones de interés mencionadas en su comunicado del pasado 15 de marzo, Atos Origin ha anunciado hoy que tanto su Consejo de vigilancia como su Directorio han decidido analizar opciones estratégicas para acompañar la ejecución del plan de transformación y apoyar el desarrollo del Grupo, creando a la vez mayor valor para los accionistas. Atos Origin espera que este proceso se lleve a cabo en un periodo breve, con el fin de evitar interrupciones en sus actividades. Para este proyecto, el Grupo ha decidido contar con la asesoría de los bancos Rothschild y Goldman Sachs. Según Atos Origin, esta revisión de opciones estratégicas puede o no dar como resultado una nueva transacción, pero, cualquiera que sea el resultado de dicho proceso, el Grupo permanece concentrado en la ejecución del plan de transformación como medio de creación de valor para sus accionistas. El Grupo no pretende comunicar el desarrollo de la revisión de opciones estratégicas hasta que el Consejo de vigilancia y el Directorio hayan decido aprobar una posible transacción o terminar con el proceso.
