EDF - Assemblée générale des actionnaires du 16 mai 2019

La société a diminué de nouveau le montant de son dividende cette année (-33%) mais dans une proportion moindre que la baisse du bénéfice net par action (-80%). Le dividende n'est donc pas couvert par le résultat. Par ailleurs, en raison des besoins d'investissement du groupe, le problème du maintien d'un dividende demeure posé et la réduction proposée semble insuffisante pour contribuer à assurer sa pérennité. Par ailleurs, une option est ouverte pour un paiement en actions avec décote. Par conséquent, les résolutions 3 et 4 ne seront pas soutenues.

Parmi les nombreux nominations et renouvellements proposés figure celle du Président-Directeur général qui ne sera pas approuvée en raison de l'absence de séparation des fonctions et du manque de contre-pouvoirs associés à une performance boursière décevante sur la durée de son mandat depuis 2014 (résolution 8).
