Caterpillar Announces Voluntary Delisting from Euronext Paris

IRVING, Texas, April 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT - Euronext Paris: CATR) (the "Company" or "Caterpillar") today announced that, following a comprehensive review of the significantly low trading volume, costs and administrative requirements related to the listing of its common stock (ISIN US1491231015) on exchanges other than the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"), it requested the voluntary delisting of its shares from the regulated market of Euronext in Paris ("Euronext Paris"). This request has been approved by the Board of Directors of Euronext Paris S.A.

In addition, Caterpillar also plans on applying for the delisting of its shares from the SIX Swiss Exchange and anticipates such delisting will be effective prior to the end of 2024.

Following the delistings from Euronext Paris and the SIX Swiss Exchange, the common stock of Caterpillar will remain traded on the NYSE, Caterpillar's primary listing exchange.

Holders of Caterpillar shares traded on Euronext Paris and held through the facilities of Euroclear France (the "CAT Euronext Shares") will have the following options:

    1. Keep their CAT Euronext Shares. Shareholders will be able to trade on
       Euronext Paris through and including the trading day prior to the
       delisting date and only on the NYSE thereafter through the facilities of
       The Depositary Trust Company ("DTC"), subject to the terms applied by
       their financial intermediary and their custody arrangements; or
    2. Participate in a voluntary sales facility (described below) to sell all
       or a portion of their CAT Euronext Shares on the NYSE, in accordance with
       the rules and regulations of Euronext Paris.

Procedure of the Voluntary Sales Facility

Shareholders wishing to sell their CAT Euronext Shares on the NYSE via the voluntary sales facility should ask their financial intermediary to deliver their CAT Euronext Shares from May 3, 2024 to May 16, 2024 (inclusive) to Société Générale. Société Générale will be acting as the centralizing agent appointed by the Company for the sales facility, following the procedure described in a Euronext notice, which is expected to be published on April 30.

The CAT Euronext Shares tendered to Société Générale will be sold beginning May 23 on the NYSE at the market price prevailing at the time of the sale. Société Générale, with the assistance of its broker, will calculate the average sale price of the CAT Euronext Shares sold during the sales period and transfer the sale proceeds (which will be converted into euros from U.S. dollars by Société Générale) to the participating shareholders once it receives the funds from its designated broker.

Caterpillar will pay the centralization and brokerage fees and any applicable foreign exchange commission in connection with the sale on the NYSE of the CAT Euronext Shares sold pursuant to the voluntary sales facility.

Please note that no guarantee can be given by the Company or by Société Générale as to the price at which the CAT Euronext Shares tendered pursuant to the voluntary sales facility will actually be sold. This process is being provided solely as an accommodation to holders of CAT Euronext Shares.

Holders of CAT Euronext Shares may decide not to participate in the voluntary sales facility or may decide not to take any action, in which case no guarantee can be given to them on the terms that will be applied by their financial intermediary after the delisting from Euronext Paris. Shareholders are urged to consult their own investment advisors before making a decision to participate or not in this process.

The calendar for the sales facility and the delisting of the shares from Euronext Paris is as follows (it being specified that the Company reserves the right to amend this calendar):


    ---                                                                                      ---
