As part of its core missions, which include the protection of savings and investor information, the AMF pays particular attention to the exercise by shareholders of their prerogatives concerning the general meetings of listed companies.
As the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak develops, and in the fight to prevent it from spreading, as well as in light of the order issued by the French Minister for Solidarity and Health of 4 March 2020, stating that public gatherings contribute to the rapid transmission of the virus, the AMF reminds shareholders of listed companies that they do not need to be physically present to vote at general meetings. Any shareholder may also submit written questions on subjects that fall within the scope of the general meeting in accordance with Article L. 225-108 of the French Commercial Code.

The AMF invites shareholders who have any questions about these different voting procedures or about access to documentation on this matter to contact the investor relations departments of the issuers concerned.
