Proxinvest notes that remuneration for the Chairman, as well as for all the executives, has risen significantly due to the introduction of a long-term component (performance shares) in 2017. Having introduced a long-term component is a positive point for executives; however, this is contrary to Proxinvest voting policy regarding a Chairman’s remuneration (Resolution 10 to 17).
Moreover, the performance period over which the performance conditions are assessed should be extended: Proxinvest considers that a minimum period of three-years should apply. Performance shares will vest in three unequal tranches (40%, 10%, 10%, and 40%): the first tranche represents 40% of the total allocation but performance conditions are only assessed over a two-year period.
Moreover, Resolution 4 invites the General Meeting to approve the Statutory Auditors' special report on new regulated agreements only: it does not t comply with the letter and spirit of Article L.225-40 of the French Commercial Code which requires the approval of previous regulated agreements as well.
Shareholders are requested to approve the new regulated agreement regarding the EIR acquisition (Resolution 5). Although the strategic rational was clearly presented, the lack of disclosure, particularly pertaining the shareholder pact between Iliad and NJJ Tara SAS, makes it difficult to evaluate whether the transaction was truly in the interest of minority shareholders.
Proxinvest also regrets the presence of all the executive directors on the Board (independence rate is 33.33% only). Nevertheless, we recommend that shareholders approve the re-election of Maxime Lombardini, CEO, as director (Resolution 7).

Our third TMT Forum in Paris and Frankfurt was attended by 21 companies and over 140 investors. We came away from the discussions with a fairly positive sentiment, particularly with the approach of the low point for semiconductors, the improved advertising trend in Q1 2019 and a more aggressive stance from telecoms operators despite the price environment. We are raising our target prices on Worldline (€ 52 to € 68) and Ericsson (SEK 85 to SEK 95). - >Third ODDO BHF TMT For...
Nous avons organisé notre 3ème Forum TMT à Paris et Francfort avec 21 sociétés et 150 investisseurs.
