Meeting the shareholders


In 1997, the Lagardère group formed a Shareholders' Consultative Committee representing individual shareholders.

The Committee's objectives are to:

  • improve financial communications between the Group and its shareholders;
  • reflect on shareholders' expectations and their perception of the Group and its investor relations policy (financial results, strategy, the Annual General Meeting etc.).

The Committee consists of representatives of individual shareholders along with representatives of Lagardère.

The Committee considers primarily themes such as:

  • financial communication via the Group's website;
  • sustainable development;
  • the annual report;
  • the Group's business development and strategy.

Anyone interested in becoming a member and participating in the Committee's work should contact the Investor Relations Department via the Investor Relations section of the website.


Information for shareholders

The Group provides its shareholders with comprehensive and easily accessible financial information on a regular basis and in various ways including the distribution of financial press releases by an AMF-approved provider, publications on its website, and live broadcasts of financial results presentations and the Annual General Meeting.

The website includes two sections especially for investors and individual shareholders, including documents relating to the Annual General Meeting, answers to frequently asked questions and information about how to become a shareholder.

Specific sections are also provided on particular topics such as sustainable development, corporate governance, regulated information and debt.

Meetings with investors and financial analysts

In 2019, the Group organised face-to-face meetings or conference calls with investors (holding shares and bonds) and financial analysts and took part in roadshows and sector-specific conferences in Europe and North America.The Group also carried out specific communications relating to its strategy within the framework of Investor Days, intended to improve understanding of certain business activities by the financial community: the Group’s growth strategy in 2014, Lagardère Travel Retail in 2016 and Lagardère Publishing in 2017.

The Group maintains close and regular relations with financial analysts, particularly when reporting earnings or revenue (conference calls).

Information meetings for individual shareholders are also organised across the French regions.


The shares that make up Lagardère SCA's share capital are all registered shares, held either in administered form (via a financial intermediary) or in directly registered form (via Société Générale Securities Services).
Thanks to this form of shares, all shareholders:

  • are systematically invited to Annual General Meetings and can vote more easily by post or online;
  • benefit from double voting rights once they have held shares on a continuous basis for four years.

Practical information about how to transfer directly registered shares to Société Générale Securities Services can be found on the Lagardère website within heading « Individual Shareholders / becoming a shareholder ».

The main advantages of holding shares in directly registered form are:

  • no custodian fees (details of other fees relating to ownership of directly registered shares are given on the Lagardère website);
  • dividends paid directly on the date of payment decided by the Annual General Meeting;
  • free handling of standard instructions relating to the ordinary running of the securities account: transfers, donations, adjustments etc.;
  • taking care of communicating instructions from the shareholder to sell securities;
  • guaranteed receipt of documents relating to the running of the account periodically or on request, as soon as possible and free of charge, with the possibility of opting for electronic communications.
