Despite the gradual lifting of lockdown measures and given the uncertainty of being able to organize a meeting under satisfactory health safety conditions, Wavestone has exceptionally decided to hold a closed Annual General Meeting on July 28, 2020, i.e. without the physical presence of shareholders.
Michel Dancoisne, Chairman of Wavestone's Supervisory Board, and Pascal Imbert, Chairman of the Management Board, stated: “This decision was taken from a perspective of prudence and responsibility in order to protect the health and safety of everyone. We are very committed to the quality of our governance and our relationship with Wavestone's shareholders, whether institutional, individual or employee. We will therefore make every effort to maintain shareholder dialogue and enable the firm's shareholders to fully enforce their rights”.
The notice of meeting was published in the BALO (Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires) on June 19, 2020 and can be accessed on Wavestone's website.
