OTTAWA — The four opposition parties in Ottawa are making demands of the minority Liberal government ahead of next week’s federal budget, but their leverage is limited. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has pledged not to trigger an election regardless of what the budget has in store on April 19, a move that potentially weakens New Democrats' say in the final product. "Our support for the actual budget is not probably a concern for the Liberals, because they want an election. They want an excuse to go to an election,” he said Tuesday. Singh is calling for a stronger federal role in on-the-ground COVID-19 vaccine administration as well as concrete steps toward a national child-care plan, which the Liberals have pledged periodically since 1993. Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet says he would likely back the first budget in more than two years if it boosts monthly support for seniors and no-strings-attached health transfers to the provinces. "Our conditions have always been very clear," he said, adding that his phone conversation with Trudeau on Monday was "polite and quite interesting." Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole, whose party has the second-most seats in Parliament at 121 out of 338, said he stressed job creation and minimal taxation in his phone chat with the prime minister Monday. Green Leader Annamie Paul wants to see emergency student benefits resurrected starting May 1 at $2,000 per month, more than the $1,250 offered last year. "In 2020, the government justified offering students a discounted emergency benefit based on the promise of summer jobs. Those jobs never materialized," Paul said, pegging the student summer unemployment rate at 40 per cent. The number roughly aligns with Canada Labour Force surveys from June through August. All four opposition leaders are speaking with Trudeau this week to make their case on the budget, which could result in an election if the three main opposition parties vote against it to topple the 16-month-old Liberal government. Like other party heads, Trudeau has repeatedly said he does not want an election. But he declined to swear off triggering one until the passage of Bill C-19 — legislation now in second reading that would amend voting laws to allow for a safe election during a pandemic. "Obviously nobody wants to have an election right now. Certainly we do not," he told reporters, while leaving the door open to one on the near horizon. "I think it is simply responsible to make sure that parties have the choice, for example, to vote against the budget we're putting forward next week, and not feel threatened that democracy is so fragile that we can't have an election because they would be putting Canadians at risk." Trudeau could decide to pull the plug himself and Liberal insiders suggest that may happen over the summer, provided the vaccine rollout continues apace and the pandemic, currently spreading like wildfire once again, is sufficiently doused.

Police have arrested a longtime suspect and his father in connection with the murder of Kristin Smart, a 19-year-old college freshman who went missing from her California university 25 years ago, local media reported. Smart was last seen walking to her dormitory on the campus of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, 150 miles (240 km) northwest of Los Angeles, in 1996 after attending an off-campus party. Paul Flores, a fellow student at Cal Poly SLO in 1996 and long a prime suspect in the unsolved case, was taken into custody on Tuesday morning in the Los Angeles suburb of San Pedro.
STOKE-ON-TRENT, United Kingdom — Evelyne Viens and Nichelle Prince capitalized on defensive miscues and Canada blunted the England attack the rest of the way for a 2-0 win in a women's soccer friendly Tuesday. The mistakes came early and late -- in the third and 86th minutes -- and they proved costly. The victory was a timely confidence boost for the eighth-ranked Canadians, coming against an in-season English team ranked sixth in the world and playing at home, albeit without fans at bet365 Stadium, the 30,000-capacity home of Stoke City of the second-tier Championship. Both teams played last Friday with Canada blanking No. 31 Wales 3-0 in Cardiff and England losing 3-1 to No. 3 France in Caen. Canada captain Christine Sinclair, who limped off the field in the first half against Wales with an undisclosed injury, did not dress Tuesday. Canada struck early, taking advantage of a defensive blunder. Janine Beckie drove towards the England penalty box and sent the ball in to Viens, who hesitated because she was in an offside position. Defender Demi Stokes grabbed the ball and tried to send it to her goalkeeper only to see Viens muscle her off the ball and send it over the onrushing Carly Telford from close range. It was the second goal in as many games for Viens, who opened her international account against Wales. The 24-year-old Sky Blue FC forward, a prolific scorer at the University of South Florida with 73 goals in 77 games, has earned all five of her caps under new coach Bev Priestman. Canada looked calm and collected in the face of England's attempts to find a tying goal. Substitute goalkeeper Karen Bardsley was slow getting rid of the ball on a Millie Bright back pass and Prince poked the ball in with the clock winding down. Priestman made three changes to her starting lineup with Viens, Beckie and Allysha Chapman coming in for Sinclair, Jordyn Huitema and Gabrielle Carle. Desiree Scott served as skipper in her 160th international appearance. The Canadian starting 11 came into the match with a combined cap count of 751. Barring Sinclair and absent defender Kadeisha Buchanan, it was probably Canada's preferred lineup. England was without injured skipper Steph Houghton with Bright, a Chelsea defender, captaining the Lionesses for the first time. Star fullback Lucy Bronze, who missed the France match through injury, came on in the 64th minute. After going behind early, England had a good period of first-half pressure. The Lionesses moved the ball around while Canada focused on defence and looked to counter-attack. England's Jordan Nobbs came close in the 29th minute with Canadian 'keeper Stephanie Labbe getting a fingertip to her free kick before it deflected off the crossbar. Stokes, returning from injury, was substituted in the 32d minute. Telford had to push a shot by Quinn, who goes by one name, over the crossbar in the 40th minute. While the Canadians had few attacking opportunities in the half, they had some success with the long ball, the pace of Deanne Rose and the vision of Beckie. When push came to shove, the English defence did not look that steady. At the other end, England managed some decent buildup play but the final ball or shot was lacking. England made several changes at halftime with Bardsley replacing Telford in goal. Rose and Viens gave way to Prince and Huitema at the hour-mark. Centre back Shelina Zadorsky took the captain's armband when Scott departed in the 66th minute. Defender Vanessa Gilles recovered from a giveaway in the 81st minute, getting a leg in to nick the ball off Lauren Hemp on a goal-scoring opportunity. Hemp and Gilles clashed heads soon after going for an aerial ball, with Hemp left bleeding from the forehead. Canada evened its all-time record against the Lionesses at 7-7-0. While the Canadians had won two out of the past three, the loss was painful — knocking Canada out of the 2015 World Cup in a 2-1 quarterfinal defeat on home soil. Tuesday's game marked Priestman's fifth as Canada coach (3-2-0) The 34-year-old Priestman was part of the England coaching setup under former women's coach Phil Neville, now in charge of Inter Miami CF. She returned to Canada Soccer in October to succeed Kenneth Heiner-Moller, who took a coaching job in his native Denmark. 'The Canada contest was the third for Norway's Hege Riise as interim England head coach. She is in charge — and will also oversee Team Great Britain's soccer entry at the Tokyo Olympics — until September when Sarina Wiegeman leaves her post as Dutch coach to take over the Lionesses. Riise's coaching staff includes Rhian Wilkinson, a former Canadian assistant coach who won 181 caps as a player for Canada. Tuesday marked the 10th anniversary of the Barclays FA Women's Super League, which is now home to Canada's Beckie (Manchester City), Jessie Fleming (Chelsea), Rylee Foster (Liverpool), Adriana Leon (West Ham) and Zadorsky (Tottenham).

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A divided federal appeals court lifted the hold Tuesday on an Ohio law that prohibits doctors from performing abortions based on a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome, a case considered nationally pivotal. Judges of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals narrowly ruled to reverse two earlier decisions blocking enforcement of the 2017 law based on the likely success of overturning it as unconstitutional. A majority of the court, which has moved rightward in recent years with six appointments by former President Donald Trump, said the law doesn’t impede a woman’s right to an abortion. The majority said Planned Parenthood and several other abortion providers represented by the American Civil Liberties Union erred in basing their case on a woman’s “absolute right” to an abortion until the fetus is viable outside the womb, because that right is neither absolute nor germane to the case. “In this case, Ohio does not rely on its interest in protecting potential fetal life,” the ruling said. Its interests in passing the law, instead, were to protect the Down syndrome community from “the stigma it suffers from the practice of Down-syndrome-selective abortions,” to protect women who suspect Down syndrome from coerced abortions and to protect the medical community from unethical doctors, they wrote. The ACLU had sued the state health department, state medical board and county prosecutors in 2018 on behalf of abortion providers, arguing the law infringes on a woman’s constitutional right to a procedure that is legal. The state argued the law does not ban the procedure but instead regulates doctors. The 2017 law had been put on hold while the legal challenge is decided. It is one of several Ohio abortion restrictions tied up in court. “Today, the Sixth Circuit allowed politicians to exploit the real needs and concerns of people with Down syndrome to push their anti-abortion agenda," Chrisse France, executive director of Preterm Cleveland, said in a statement. “No one should be able to make these decisions other than the patients and families we serve.” During a rare hearing before the full 16-judge court in March 2020, Jessie Hill, an attorney for the ACLU of Ohio, argued that the Down syndrome law unconstitutionally seeks to take “the ultimate decision” on abortion away from the woman. This and similar proposals around the country have triggered emotional debate over women’s rights, parental love, and the trust between doctor and patient. "It’s unfortunate that the court gave so little weight to the importance of open and honest communication within the doctor-patient relationship,” Hill said in a statement Tuesday. Ohio Solicitor General Ben Flowers said the law seeks to prevent abortions that target and discriminate against those with Down syndrome. That argument dovetailed with the contentions of anti-abortion groups, including Ohio Right to Life. Tuesday's decision was praised by the national anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List, whose president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said it made Ohio “a safe haven for unborn babies with Down syndrome." “This law includes reasonable, compassionate measures to prevent lethal discrimination in the womb,” she said in a statement. Dannenfelser said now that a circuit split has occurred on the issue, it gives the U.S. Supreme Court “even more reason to weigh in” in what abortion foes hope could be a revisiting of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion. Both Dannenfelser and Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis likened abortions based on a Down syndrome diagnosis to eugenics. Abortion rights groups have been joined by some parents of children with Down syndrome in opposing the law, saying the genetic disorder was being used to gain sympathy for a new restriction. In legal filings, attorneys for the government contend that the sidelined law does not infringe on a woman’s constitutional rights because it “does not prohibit any abortions at all.” Dissenting judges rejected that notion outright. “I will call it what it is: the long-arm of the state — wielding the threat of a class-four felony — forcefully reaching into a profoundly intimate conversation between doctor and patient and telling the patient to be silent about her medical history or worse, purposefully lie about it,” Judge Bernice Donald wrote in a dissent. The law specifically prohibits physicians from performing an abortion if they’re aware that a diagnosis of Down syndrome, or the possibility of such a diagnosis, is influencing the decision. Doctors could face a fourth-degree felony charge, be stripped of their medical license, and be held liable for legal damages. The pregnant woman faces no criminal liability under the law.

SUCCESSFUL ISSUANCE BY NEXITY OF BONDS CONVERTIBLE INTO NEW SHARES AND/OR EXCHANGEABLE FOR EXISTING SHARES (OCEANES) DUE 2028 FOR APPROXIMATELY €240M AND RESULTS OF THE CONCURRENT REPURCHASE OF THE OUTSTANDING OCEANES DUE 2023 ISSUED IN MAY 2016 BY WAY OF A REVERSE BOOKBUILDING PROCESS Paris, April 13th 2021 Final terms of the bonds convertible into new shares and/or exchangeable for existing shares due April 19th 2028 (the “2028 OCEANEs” or the “Bonds”) Nexity (the “Company“ or “Nexity“) has successfully completed today an issuance of 2028 OCEANEs, for a nominal amount of €239,999,945.86 (the “Issuance“). The net proceeds of this Issuance will be used to extend the maturity of Nexity’s indebtedness by financing the repurchase of part the outstanding €270m OCEANEs due 2023 issued on May 13th 2016 (the “2023 OCEANEs”) tendered by their holders during the repurchase proposal (as detailed further below). The nominal unit value per 2028 OCEANE has been set at EUR 59.81, representing a premium of 35% above Nexity’s reference share price1 on the regulated market of Euronext in Paris (”Euronext Paris”). The 2028 OCEANEs will be issued at par and will bear interest at an annual rate of 0.875%, payable semi-annually in arrears on April 19th and October 19th of each year (or on the following business day if such date is not a business day) and for the first time on October 19th 2021. The settlement and delivery of the 2028 OCEANES is expected to take place on April 19th 2021 (the “Issue Date”). Dilution Given the issuance of a €240 million euros nominal amount and a par value of 59.81 euros per 2028 OCEANEs, and the repurchase by the Company of 92.8% of the 2023 OCEANEs initially issued through the Repurchase, the resulting dilution approximately represents 7.83% of the outstanding share capital, if the Company decided to deliver only new shares. For information purposes, in the event of a repurchase or early redemption by the Company of all the 2023 OCEANEs initially issued, the potential dilution would be reduced from 9.46% of the share capital of the Company prior to the transaction to 7.15% of the share capital of the Company after completion of the transaction, if the Company decided to deliver only new shares. Redemption Unless previously converted and/or exchanged, redeemed or repurchased and cancelled, the 2028 OCEANEs will be redeemed at par on April 19th, 2028 (or on the following business day if this date is not a business day) (the “Maturity Date”). The 2028 OCEANEs may be redeemed before the Maturity Date at the option of Nexity, under certain conditions, and at the option of bondholders in case of Change of Control or a Delisting Event (as defined in the terms and conditions of the 2028 OCEANEs). In particular, the 2028 OCEANEs may be fully redeemed at Nexity’s option at any time from May 12th, 2025 until the Maturity Date, subject to a minimum 30 (but no more than 60) days’ prior notice, if the arithmetic average of the products of Nexity’s share volume-weighted average price on Euronext Paris and the prevailing conversion ratio (calculated over a period of 20 consecutive trading days chosen by the Company from among the 30 consecutive trading days ending on (and including) the trading day immediately preceding the day of the publication of the early redemption notice) exceeds 130% of the nominal value of the 2028 OCEANEs. The 2028 OCEANEs may also be fully redeemed at any time, subject to a minimum 30 (and a maximum 60) days’ prior notice, if 85% or more in principal amount of the 2028 OCEANEs originally issued have been converted/exchanged and/or redeemed and/or purchased by Nexity and cancelled. Lock-up In the context of the Issuance, the Company agreed to a lock-up undertaking for a period starting from the announcement of the final terms of the 2028 OCEANEs and ending 90 calendar days after the settlement and delivery date of the 2028 OCEANEs, subject to certain customary exceptions. Legal framework An application will be made for the admission of the 2028 OCEANEs to trading on Euronext AccessTM, the non-regulated market of Euronext Paris. Such admission to trading is expected within 30 days from the settlement date. The 2028 OCEANEs, will be issued as per the 28th resolution approved by the shareholders’ ordinary and extraordinary general meeting held on May 19th, 2020 and have been offered by way of a placement, in France and outside France (excluding the United States of America, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Japan) to qualified investors only as defined in article 2(e) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 in accordance with Article L.411-2 1° of the French Monetary and Financial Code (Code monétaire et financier). Available information The Issuance and the admission to trading on Euronext AccessTM are not subject to a prospectus approved by the French Financial Market Authority (Autorité des marchés financiers) (the “AMF”).

The repurchase price for the Repurchase is equal to 66.90 euros per 2023 OCEANE (including accrued interest). Transaction Conditions The Repurchase was targeted at holders of the 2023 OCEANEs that are eligible in their respective jurisdictions, in particular that are not persons located or resident in the United States or persons acting for the account or benefit of such persons willing to sell their 2023 OCEANEs to Nexity.

MiFID II – Target Market: Professional Investors and Eligible Counterparties and Retail Investors (France only) Solely for the purposes of each manufacturer’s product approval process, the target market assessment in respect of the Bonds has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for the Bonds is French retail investors, eligible counterparties and professional clients, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) all channels for distribution of the Bonds to French retail investors, eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the Bonds (a “distributor”) should take into consideration the manufacturers’ target market assessment; however, a distributor subject to MiFID II is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Bonds (by either adopting or refining the manufacturers’ target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels. 1 The reference share price is equal to the volume-weighted average price of Nexity’s share on Euronext Paris between the opening of trading on April 13th 2021 and the pricing of the Bonds on the same day Attachment Nexity_Pricing PR_Eng_2021.04.13_vdef
