Gilles Michel, CEO, will resign on the 4th of May, 2018. Conrad Keijzer, appointed as deputy Chief Executive Officer on March 8, 2018, will be designated as Chief Executive Officer of the Group. We welcome the separation of functions (resolutions 7 and 10). The Board will decide at its meeting on May 4, 2018 to coopt a new independent female member who is currently being selected.
2017 remuneration for Gilles Michel : The Company has made a concerted effort to improve transparency this year by disclosing performance criteria weightings and achievement rates for the bonus. However, given the lack of a real long-term remuneration and an excessive variable remuneration, the remuneration structure is unsatisfactory. Moreover, quantum is too high. Therefore, we recommend that shareholders oppose resolution 6.
2018 remuneration policies for Gilles Michel and Conrad Reijzer: Gilles Michel will not receive a severance payment but will be entitled to a supplementary defined benefit (“Top Hat”) pension plan. Regretfully, the annuity associated with said Top Hat plan was not disclosed, in contradiction with the Macron Law (“Loi Macron”). Additionally, no information is provided regarding a potential LTIP grant.
The remuneration policy for Conrad Keijzer, incoming CEO, will include a new element (“impatriation bonus”) and the LTIP ceiling will be increased. Thus, we expect quantum to be higher next year.
Therefore, we recommend that shareholders oppose resolution 5.

Cette année encore, Proxinvest déplore le manque d’informations et de transparence concernant les administrateurs de la société ainsi que la rémunération des mandataires sociaux : aucune information ni biographie n’est disponible sur les membres du conseil. En outre, Proxinvest s’opposera cette année à la politique de rémunération des dirigeants mandataires sociaux en raison du manque de transparence (résolution 5) et sur les montants attribués au cours de l'exercice au Président-Directeur général qui semblent trop élevés au regard de la taille de la société (résolution 6).
Afin de pouvoir remplir au mieux la mission de surveillance et de protection de l’ensemble des actionnaires qui lui incombe, il nous semblerait préférable que le conseil ne soit pas composé de seulement cinq membres dont deux personnes de la famille du principal actionnaire. La société fait preuve de légèreté dans la transparence des informations communiquées aux actionnaires en matière de rémunération. Par conséquent, la plupart des résolutions référentes aux rémunérations des dirigeants connaitront un recommandations négatives au regard de ce manque de transparence. Dans la même optique, ...
