Shareholders’ Meetings

Notice of meetings

Shareholders’ Meetings are convened and conducted under the conditions provided for by law..

Admission to meetings

Participation in any form in Shareholders’ Meetings is subject to registration of participating shares. Shares must either be held in the registered account maintained by the Company (or its securities agent) or recorded in bearer form in a securities account maintained by a financial intermediary. Proof of this registration is obtained under a certificate of participation (“attestation de participation”) delivered to the shareholder. Registration of the shares must be effective no later than midnight (Paris time) on the second business day preceding the date of the Shareholders’ Meeting. If, after having received such a certificate, shares are sold or transferred prior to this record date, the certificate of participation will be canceled and the votes sent by mail or proxies granted to the Company for such shares will be canceled accordingly. If shares are sold or transferred after this record date, the certificate of participation will remain valid and votes cast or proxies granted will be taken into account.
