Paris, 17 April 2020 – Given the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and in accordance with the provisions of article 4 of France's Official Circular no. 2020-321 dated 25 March 2020, the Company recently informed its shareholders that its General Meeting would be held at 10am on 28 April 2020, without the shareholders (or any other persons with the right to take part in the Meeting) being present, whether physically or via telephone-based or audiovisual conferencing.
The Company wishes to point out, in addition to the information featuring in its press release dated 7 April 2020 and in the summons to attend published in the BALO official journal on 13 April 2020 as well as in a publication that carries legal announcements on 10 April 2020, that in accordance with article 6 of France's decree no. 2020-418 of 10 April 2020, should a shareholder grant a proxy voting mandate to a named person (as mentioned in point I of article L. 225-106 of France's Commercial Code):
- The mandates stating the identities of the proxies must reach the Company by or on the fourth day prior to the date of the General Meeting;
- The proxies must each send their instructions for the exercising of their mandates to the Company by electronic mail to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org, using the voting form of the General Meeting, by the fourth day prior to the date of the General Meeting at the latest.
- Each form must bear the family name, first name and address of the proxy, the statement “acting as proxy of [identity of the shareholder who granted the mandate]”, and must be signed and dated. The votes must be shown in the “Voting by postal ballot” box of the form.
The Company also wishes to point out that as an exception to point III of article R. 225-85 of France's Commercial Code, shareholders who have already voted remotely, issued a proxy voting form or requested their admission pass or an admission certificate, may choose another means of taking part in the General Meeting, provided that their instructions in this respect are received within timescales that are compatible with the rules concerning each means of taking part. The previous instructions that were received will then be revoked.
