Paris, 2 April 2021 - Against the background of the Covid-19 crisis and to ensure the safety of all shareholders, the Board has decided to hold the Ordinary General Meeting scheduled for 10 a.m. on 27 April 2021 in closed session without the physical presence of shareholders and all other persons entitled to attend.
This decision has been taken in accordance with the provisions of Ordinance 2020-321 of 25 March 2020, as extended and amended. The lockdown measures that currently apply in the Ile de France region do not permit physical meetings of shareholders. Furthermore, were these measures to be lifted on the date of the meeting, the Company does not have, and has not been able to identify, a space that would allow it to comply with the Covid-19 epidemic health protection measures set out in Decree 2020-1310 of 29 October 2020, given the number of people usually present at this meeting.
The Advance Notice announcing the Annual General Meeting, including the Meeting Agenda, the text of the resolutions to be submitted for the approval of the Meeting and details regarding attendance and voting rights were published on 22 March 2021 in the Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires (BALO). The Notice of Meeting will be published on 12 April 2021 in the BALO and in a bulletin of legal notices.
These notices are available on the company website at www.altamir.fr.
Webcast and details of how to take part
It should be noted that the technical impossibility of identifying individual shareholders means that they will not be able to participate and vote live (by telephone or video conferencing).
The Meeting will be webcast by video on the company website at www.altamir.fr.
It will be relayed within the regulatory time limit.
Since shareholders are unable to attend the meeting in person, no admittance cards will be issued.
Shareholders are invited to cast their votes in advance of the Annual General Meeting by post or by granting a proxy to the Chairman of the Annual General Meeting or to a third party who will also be required to vote remotely, either by post or by e-mail using the address [email protected] or via the secure VOTACCESS voting platform.
