GLOBAL BIOENERGIES: GLOBAL BIOENERGIES SECURES A LINE OF EQUITY FINANCING WITH SOCIETE GENERALE

Global Bioenergies secures a line of equity financing

with Société Générale

Evry, 5 October 2015
- Global Bioenergies (Alternext Paris: ALGBE/eligible for PEA-PME) announces
the implementation of an optional line of equity financing (PACEO
®) with Société Générale.

At the current share price[1], the utilisation in full of this line of
financing would procure for the Company an additional funding of 9 million
euros.

Subject to certain conditions, most notably the Company's right to suspend
execution of the program at any time, Société Générale has committed to
subscribing 250,000 new shares during the course of the next 36 months, or
8.9% of the current capital. In case of full utilisation of the line[2], a
shareholder holding 1% of the capital would see his equity investment go to
0.92% of the capital[3].

For each tranche, the issue price will include a discount of 5% relative to
the average weighted price by volume of the preceding stock exchange session.
This discount makes it possible for Société Générale, which does not intend
to retain its stake in the Company, to guarantee the subscription of the
shares despite possible volatility of the financial markets.

At the same time, the equity line agreement entered into with Yorkville
Advisors on 16 May 2014 is terminated and the 97,736 share issuance warrants
related to this agreement and not exercised to date are invalid.

François-Henri Sahakian, Global Bioenergies' CFO, states:"Global Bioenergies
has good financial visibility: the gross cash of the Group was 13.8 million
euros at 30 June 2015 (audited), and
14.1 million euros at 30 September 2015 (not audited). We can also count on 5
million euros in subsidies remaining to be received from the BMBF (German
Federal Ministry of Research) and
1.7 million euros from the French State (Investment for the Future). The line
of financing obtained from Société Générale reinforces the financial
situation of Global Bioenergies for the medium term."

Marc Delcourt, CEO of Global Bioenergies, concludes:"Global Bioenergies is
approaching the most value-generating phase of its
history: the startup of the demo plant. The construction of the demo plant is
underway, and should be ended in July 2016. The line of financing signed with
Société Générale will bring us the means to start up and operate the demo
plant, prerequisite to exploiting the process on a large scale."

About GLOBAL BIOENERGIES

Global Bioenergies is one of the few companies worldwide, and the only one in
Europe, that is developing a process to convert renewable resources into
hydrocarbons through fermentation. The Company initially focused its efforts
on the production of isobutene, one of the most important petrochemical
building blocks that can be converted into fuels, plastics, organic glass and
elastomers. Global Bioenergies continues to improve the performances of its
process, operates its industrial pilot, has begun the construction of its
demo plant in Germany, and prepares the first full-scale plant through a
Joint-Venture with Cristal Union, named IBN-One. The company also replicated
its achievement to propylene and butadiene, two members of the gaseous
olefins family, key molecules at the heart of petrochemical industry. Global
Bioenergies is listed on Alternext, Euronext Paris (FR0011052257 - ALGBE).
