The current shareholder structure is a derivation of the original structure and dates from AREVA’s foundation on September 3, 2001 and successive market transactions.

  • At AREVA's foundation, numerous shareholders (Total, EDF...) exchanged a number of minority holdings primarily in COGEMA and Framatome SA for shares in the new AREVA group.
  • The holdings of the original shareholder, the CEA (Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique et aux énergies alternatives) is still at a majority stake that is for now at 54%.
  • In December 2010, the sovereign fund of Koweit (Kuwait  Investment Authority) has entered the capital of AREVA at a 5% level, followed by the French State which reinforced his direct stake.
  • The capital increase reserved to investment certificates holders (only listed investment tool at this time) at the beginning of 2011 allowed to keep the float (part of the capital held by the general public) at 4% of the capital.
  • The exchange in 2011 of all AREVA's shares into ordinary shares had considerably simplified the structure of AREVA's capital.
  • Since May 30, 2011 AREVA’s entire capital has been listed in the form of ordinary shares.
