Lagardère SA holds a General Meeting at least once a year, an opportunity for all shareholders, regardless of the number of shares they own, to exercise their voting rights.
General Meetings may be:
- ordinary, when shareholders make any decisions that do not result in an amendment of the articles of association, including the approval of the financial statements for the previous financial year, the allocation of profit and the appointment or re-appointment of Supervisory Board members;
- extraordinary, when shareholders make any decisions that do result in an amendment of the articles of association, as well as decisions relating to financial transactions, especially those that directly impact the Lagardère SA share (share capital increase in cash, award of free shares, issuance of securities, etc.);
- ordinary and extraordinary, when shareholders adopt both ordinary and extraordinary resolutions.
At least 15 days prior to the General Meeting date, each shareholder receives a notice of meeting containing all of the necessary documents to cast their vote.
