Constellium Prices Notes Offering

Paris, June 16, 2020 – Constellium SE (NYSE : CSTM) (“Constellium” or the “Company”) today announced that the Company has priced a private offering (the “Notes Offering”) of $325 million of U.S. dollar denominated senior unsecured notes due 2028 (the “Notes”). The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 5.625% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears. The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries. The Notes Offering is expected to close on June 30, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the Notes Offering to fund the redemption of all of its outstanding 4.625% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Redemption”). The Company intends to use any remaining net proceeds from the Notes Offering for general corporate purposes and to pay related fees and expenses.

The Notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase shares of the Company, the Notes or any other securities, shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful, and shall not constitute a notice of redemption of any of the Company’s existing notes.

The Notes are not intended to be offered, sold, transferred or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold, transferred or otherwise made available, as part of their initial distribution or at any time thereafter, directly or indirectly to any retail investor in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) or the United Kingdom (the “UK”). For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as

amended, “MiFID II”); (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 on the prospectus to be published when the securities are offered to the public or admitted to trading. Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 for offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making available to retail investors in the EEA or UK has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making available to any retail investor in the EEA or UK may be unlawful. Solely for the purposes of each manufacturer’s product approval process in MiFID II, the target market assessment in respect of the Notes has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market of the Notes is eligible counterparties and professional clients only (each as defined in MiFID II) and (ii) all channels for distribution of such Notes to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate.
