Every shareholder has the right to participate in the Shareholers' Meeting and holds as many votes as the number of voting shares that he or she owns or represents: 1 share = 1 vote.

Since 3 April 2016, fully paid-up shares that have been registered for at least two years in the name of the same shareholder are automatically entitled to double voting rights.

To personally attend the Shareholders’ Meeting, or to be represented or vote, you must own securities registered in your name, up to the second business day before the Shareholders’ Meeting at midnight, Paris time.

Regardless of how you hold your shares, you can exercise your shareholder rights online or by mail in order to:

  • request an admission card;
  • vote;
  • grant power to the Chairman;
  • grant power to any other person.
