Coty Inc. (NYSE: COTY) (“Coty” or the “Company”), one of the world’s largest beauty companies with a portfolio of iconic brands across fragrance, color cosmetics, and skin and body care, today announced the pricing of its previously-announced global offering of 33 million shares (the “Offering”) of Coty’s outstanding Class A common stock (the “Class A Common Stock”), at a price of $10.80, or €10.28 (based on a spot EUR-USD FX of 1.0509). The Offering is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement, which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

The Offering is being made to the public in the United States and on a private placement basis outside of the United States, including in the European Economic Area to qualified investors as defined in Article 2(e) of Regulation (EU) N° 2017/1129 of 14 June 2017, as amended (the “Prospectus Regulation”).

Coty also announces the admission to listing and trading of its Class A Common Stock (including the shares of Class A Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the Offering) (the “Paris Listing”) on the professional segment of the regulated market of Euronext Paris (“Euronext Paris”) following approval by the Autorité des marchés financiers (the “AMF”) of the prospectus prepared in connection with such listing (the “French Listing Prospectus”). Shares on Euronext Paris are expected to start trading today at 9:30am ET / 3:30pm CET.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering primarily to retire principal amount of outstanding debt. Other uses include general corporate purposes, such as strategic investments in its business, working capital and capital expenditures.

Coty currently intends to manage its outstanding share count through discretionary settlement of one or more of its outstanding total return swaps. Coty expects any such settlement to occur over the next 6 months and in an amount not to exceed 27 million shares, although there is no definitive transaction to announce at this time.
