Paris, December 22nd, 2017


Disclosure of new regulatory capital requirements as from 1st January 2018


The European Central Bank confirmed the level of additional requirement in respect of Pillar 2 (P2R or "Pillar 2 Requirement") for Societe Generale, which will come into force as from 1st January 2018. This level remains at 1.5%.

Taking into account the combined regulatory buffers, the phased-in CET1 ratio level that would trigger the Maximum Distributable Amount mechanism in 2018 would be 8.7 %, up + 90bp vs. 2017, due to the gradual phasing-in of the buffers. All other things being equal, it will reach 9.6%, including 0.1% of countercyclical buffers, as from 1st January 2019.


The regulatory CET1 phased-in ratio, amounting to 11.7%(1) at end-September 2017, gives the Group comfortable room for manoeuvre to meet these new requirements.
