Proxy Report - 27/04/2018

La société ne dissocie pas les fonctions de Président du Conseil et de Directeur Général et aucun contre-pouvoir n'a été mis en place (conseil non majoritairement indépendant, absence d'un administrateur référent indépendant et d'executive sessions mais existence de droits de vote double dont il est un des principaux bénéficiaires). Pour ces raisons, Proxinvest s’opposera au renouvellement de Philippe Benacin, PDG de la société (résolution 5).

La rémunération des dirigeants souffrent d'un manque de communication avec pour 2017 l'absence de communication des taux de réalisation des critères du bonus. Les montants semblent assez élevés. Pour 2018, en raison de la mauvaise transparence, les actionnaires ne sont pas en mesure de vérifier la structure de la politique de rémunération et de contrôler les montants. Par conséquent, les résolutions 14 à 17 ne seront pas soutenues.

Enfin, les résolutions portant sur des augmentations de capital respectent pour la plupart les montants préconisés par Proxinvest mais n’excluent pas leur usage en période d’offre publique. Par conséquent, nous ne soutiendrons pas les résolutions 20 à 25.
