ECA remains eligible for PEA-SMEs in 2017
As in 2016, for the current year, ECA has confirmed that it meets all eligibility criteria for the French PEA-SME tax-efficient investment regime indicated by the application decree of March 4, 2014 (decree no. 2014-283), having fewer than 5,000 employees, and either annual revenue of less than €1,500 million or balance sheet assets of less than €2,000 million. These criteria apply to the Group as a whole.
Consequently, ECA shares continue to be eligible for incorporation into PEA-SME accounts, which benefit from the same tax advantages as the traditional French Share Savings Plan (PEA).
