Abéo, 17 Juillet 2019

ABEO a annoncé le vif succès de son introduction en bourse sur marché Euronext à Paris. L'offre, clôturée le 5 octobre 2016, a bénéficié d'une demande très soutenue émanant d'une quarantaine d'investisseurs institutionnels français et internationaux ainsi que des investisseurs particuliers.

Le taux d’indépendance de la société étant particulièrement bas (25%), nous nous opposerons à la résolution 8 concernant la ratification de la cooptation de Jean Ferrier.

Proxinvest regrette que la société s’autorise à intervenir en période d’offre publique d’achat.
