In connection with the investigation triggered by the Romanian National Anti-Corruption Directorate (“DNA”), which we have previously disclosed to the market and to our investors in the initial public offering prospectus dated 26 April 2017, in the supplemental prospectus dated 8 May 2017 (together, the “Prospectus”), as well as in the subsequent public reports, we inform you that, on 25 July 2017, RCS & RDS S.A. (the Company’s subsidiary) was indicted by the DNA in connection with the offences of bribery and money laundering, INTEGRASOFT S.R.L. (one of RCS & RDS S.A.’s subsidiary) was indicted for the offence of accessory to money laundering, while Mr. Mihai Dinei (member of the Board of directors of RCS & RDS S.A.), was indicted by the DNA in connection with the offences of accessory to bribery and accessory to money laundering.
Additionally, on 25 July 2017, the DNA confirmed that it attached two real estate assets pertaining to RCS & RDS S.A. to secure an amount of up to Lei 13,714,414 (approximately EUR 3 million).
