In general, ISS is in compliance with the Danish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.
Under ITEM 4, although not legally required in Denmark, the board of directors and the executive management seek discharge. Under its guidelines, ECGS no longer approves discharge of the board of directors and/or executive management if there is no legal
requirement for it. Since there is no such requirement in Denmark, ECGS recommends to OPPOSE.
Under ITEMS 7a-7f, the (re-)election of the board of directors is proposed. ECGS has concerns over the aggregate time commitments of Mr. Thomas Berglund (ITEM 7b), Ms. Claire Chiang (ITEM 7c) and Mr. Henrik Poulsen (ITEM 7d). Therefore, ECGS normally would have recommended opposition. However, considering that the proxy card does not permit this, it recommends abstention instead.
Finally, under ITEM 9a, the board of directors seeks authorisation to issue shares. The authority requested is limited to 19.9% of the Company's share capital and thereby substantially exceeds ECGS' guidelines. ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE.

Equities’ disconnect from the "pessimism" of the bond markets is obvious. The simultaneous choice of cyclicals and protection themes (growth/quality) is disturbing. What should we do when our annual objectives are being met? Avoid succumbing to the cyclical temptation, buy quality by avoiding overpaying the protection criterion linked exclusively to a healthy balance sheet structure. We present the results of a screening combining balance sheet and ROCE trends, which highlights five s...
Une fois de plus, la société est à féliciter en terme de communication puisqu'elle met à dispostion des actionnaires son rapport annuel dans un temps record. Le mandat de Laurence Verdickt arrive à échéance le 8 avril 2019 et n'est pas renouvelé. Le conseil d’administration propose la nomination de Mathilde Yagoubi comme administratrice libre de conflits d'intérêts potentiels qui sera soutenue (résolution 6). Malgré quelques faiblesses en terme de transparence et de structure, les rémunérations des dirigeants mandataires sociaux pour les exercices 2018 et 2019 (résolutions 7 à 9) semblent ac...
Proxinvest attire l’attention des actionnaires sur les points suivants : Tout d’abord les rémunérations attribuées au titre de 2018, résolutions Ex Post, rencontrons des recommandations négatives du fait que la société ne communiquent pas les taux d’atteintes de chacun des critères de performance pour la rémunération variable. Concernant les politiques de rémunération, Proxinvest recommande l’approbation des politiques du fait de l’amélioration en termes de transparence et l’inclusion d’un critère lié au RSE.

Two slates of nominees have been submitted, by UniCredit's business partner and shareholder Allianz (1.0%) and a group of institutional investors (1.7%).One of the institutional investors that submitted the slate of nominees is Generali Investments, which is a client of ECGS partners Proxinvest and Frontis Governance. It is important to note that these partners do not provide consulting services to Generali. V...
In item 4, shareholders are called to an advisory vote on the remuneration report. We have serious concerns over the variable remuneration structure, as it exclusively depends on annual results and no limits to the maximum bonus are disclosed. In our opinion, the executive remuneration is not adequately linked to long-term results, hence he recommend opposition. In item 5, the AGM is called to appoint the members of all corporate bodies (Board of Directors, Board of General Meeting and the statutory auditor) in a single item. The members of the Board of Directors and the Board of General Meet...
