500 franc share issued in Paris in 1929, bearing the stamp of change of company name for: Compagnie de l'Océan Indien, dated 1932.

The company was originally founded by the Compagnie Havraise Péninsulaire and Messageries Françaises de Madagascar. The company, then named Indian Ocean Company, aims to help the economic development, particularly of French colonies and protectorate countries. The board of directors was composed of Messrs.
