Le 1 janvier 2016, la société a modifié la structure de la société pour avoir une Conseil de Surveillance et Directoire. Ce qui requit une séparation des fonctions dePrésident et Directeur Général, ces modifications soient bienvenues et démontrent la volonté de la société d'instaurer une bonne gouvernance.
Malheureusement, la société continue de conclure des conventions avec certains de ses administrateurs non exécutifs (notamment avec Marc Goldberg jusqu'au administrateur et proposé comme censeur de 253 000 €).
Par ailleurs, les autorisations d'opérer sur le capital (rachat, augmentations de capital) sont toujours maintenus en période d'offre publique, ce qui là encore, ne respecte pas la liberté des actionnaires puisque constitue un dispositif protectionniste anti OPA, faussant ainsi le libre jeu de l'offre et des surenchères.
