  • R3D Conseil’s two principal shareholders, Québecor and Beneva, would respectively hold about 11.9% and 11.9% of Alithya’s share capital and 6.7% and 6.7% of the voting rights attached to Alithya’s shares.

  • Existing Alithya shareholder Investissement Québec’s interest would increase to 8.7% of Alithya’s share capital and 4.9% of the voting rights attached to Alithya’s shares.
