The agenda was modified by the notice of meeting to take into account the arrival of Atlantia spa as principal shareholder who held 15.49% of the capital and 26.66% of the voting rights after taking control of Aero I Global and International (previously owned by Goldman Sachs) on March 2, 2018. The new shareholder benefits from the double voting rights previously acquired by the Goldman Sachs fund. Three new resolutions are
proposed: two nominations and a change in the bylaws that we will support. A resolution to reduce the term of office of directors has been removed.
Jacques Gounon is Chairman and CEO of Eurotunnel. Given the absence of a Lead Independent Director (according to our guidelines), we recommend that shareholders oppose his nomination. (Resolution 6).
Despite a lack of demonstrated alignment with performance, we opted in favor of Jacques Gounon’s compensation in 2017 largely due to a relatively low quantum (Resolution 15). On the other hand, his remuneration policy of 2018 does not appear to improve upon our concerns (namely alignment with performance), increases the base salary by 20%, and raises the qualitative performance criteria from 15% to 40% of the bonus. As such, we recommend that shareholder oppose this new remuneration policy (resolution 17).

Deux renouvellements d'administrateurs sont proposés aux actionnaires. Bien que le conseil ne soit pas composé d'une majorité de membres libres de conflits d'intérêts potentiels, Bpifrance Participations - premier actionnaire et donc non indépendant - sera soutenu car la politique de vote de Proxinvest est de soutenir un représentant de chacun des trois premiers actionnaires quelque soit l’indépendance du conseil.
