Modes of participation in the 2020 Shareholders' Meeting in the current health context



Any shareholder, regardless of the number of shares he owns, has the right to vote at the Meeting.


If you have sold your shares after the transmission of your instructions and until D-2 working days, Tuesday, May 12, 2020, 0:00 am Paris time, the vote corresponding to these shares will not be taken into account.



The mode of participation in our General Meeting has been reviewed on an exceptional basis linked to the Covid-19 epidemic and to the restrictions imposed on the holding of General Meetings.


Unable to physically attend the General Meeting, you can choose between only one of the following two mode of participation BEFORE the Meeting:


  • Voting resolutions remotely
  • Granting a proxy to the chairman of the Meeting or a third party


Find summaries of the resolutions submitted to the shareholders' vote in the notice of Meeting 2020 (starting on page 17).


New treatment of abstentions: “abstentions” votes were previously considered to be “against” votes. From 2020 and in accordance with the law, these are now excluded from the votes cast and are therefore no longer taken into account in the calculation of the voting result. The voting forms have been modified: for each resolution, it is possible to vote "for", "against" or "abstain", or not to vote.


Voting or granting a proxy by electronic means

Electronic voting is strongly advised given the context linked to the covid19 epidemic and the possible reduction in postal services. The VOTACCESS secure voting platform for the General Meeting on Thursday May 14, 2020 has been open since Monday April 27, 2020 at 9:00 am Paris time. It will allow you to vote in a few clicks!
