Not for distribution directly or indirectly in the United States, Canada, Australia or Japan / Bond issue project

Paris, May 26, 2015 – Nexans has today launched the process of roadshow meetings with fixed income investors and, subject to market conditions, a bond issue may follow. The amount of the targeted bond issue would be of approximately
€250 million, with an expected maturity of approximately five years.

The net proceeds of any such issue would be used by Nexans for general corporate purposes. These would include financing of its upcoming debt maturities (the €212.6 million OCEANE repayment expected to be due on January 1, 2016) and reducing of its financing costs. It would also include supporting the Group's previously announced transformation plan which contemplates the implementation of various cost reduction actions and/or plans that are currently being studied and aim to deliver €100 million of additional savings by 2017. The execution of certain of these plans, if adopted, would entail significant cash costs.

Depending on markets conditions, Nexans may decide not to proceed with the bond issue described above, or may decide to modify its terms, including increasing or decreasing the size of the bond.
