The company’s disclosure on the 2017 and 2018 remuneration remain as weak as previously pointed out, and way below French and European practices. Regarding the 2017 remunerations, the company is one of the last CAC 40 companies that do not disclose achievement rates of the annual bonus. It is also one of the last CAC 40 companies to measure LTI performance over 2 years only.
Regarding the 2018 remuneration policy, the company does not disclose the LTI to be granted performance conditions (and if they are identical to the previous plans, they will not be challenging). Moreover, maximum remuneration to be granted could reach €9.97 M for Mr Arnault and €13.5 M for Mr Belloni, which is, obviously, excessive.

ITEM 9: the company still refuses to disclose the individual remuneration amounts of its executives while it complies with some governance rules for companies listed in Paris (where the majority of its Fiduciary Deposit Receipts, "FDR", are traded). It is not understandable that a company, aware of the French practices and applying some of them, deliberately chooses to ignore some of the basic fair governance and fair disclosure principles.
