The present general meeting proposes a non-binding advisory vote on compensation of the managing general partner, Jean-Dominique Senard. Shareholders should note that given its status as a partnership limited by shares (Société en commandite par actions, SCA), Michelin is not required to submit to shareholders a binding resolutions on ex-post pay 2017 and ex-ante pay 2018 (remuneration policy).
Group performance over the year was satisfactory; the overall level of remuneration is acceptable for a CEO of Company belonging to the CAC40 index. Last year the Company integrated environmental and social factors into is long term incentive program in addition to a new relative TSR criterion.
However, our 2017 policy has generally been to recommend that shareholders oppose any non-binging retrospective votes in cases where the company has failed to disclose individual achievement rates for the criteria of the annual bonus, given that almost all large cap companies in France already disclose this information. We note that Michelin does not, citing reasons of confidentiality. After having been in contact with the Company regarding this practice, the Company has promised that it will going forward disclose this information, as such in light of its otherwise good excellent remuneration practices, we support the remuneration of Jean-Dominique Senard (Resolution 6).
We note that Jean-Dominique Senard benefits from a non-compete and supplementary retirement benefits that do not figure in the Statutory Auditors’ Report on Regulated Agreements and Commitments with Related Parties (resolution 4) because the Company believes given its status as an SCA it is exempted from certain articles of the French Code of Commerce, a claim which we contest. As such, we recommend that shareholders oppose this resolution.

Item 1: Approve the share consolidation The Board requests shareholder approval to implement a share consolidation on the basis of 19 new ordinary shares for every 20 existing ordinary shares held. The consolidation is intended to maintain comparability, as far as possible, of the Company’s share price before and after the payment of a special dividend of $2.621 per share. The special dividend is equivalent to 5% of the market capitalisation of the Company as at 14 December 2018. The Company has implemented a series of share consolidations, returning funds to shareholders in this way in 2012...
Item 1: Approve Share Buybacks Shareholder approval is being sought to authorise the Company to make market purchases of its ordinary shares following the inclusion of a typographical error in the resolution granting authority at the 2018 AGM. This error meant that the authority granted at that meeting has already expired. As there is currently no authority in place, the Board proposes the standard share repurchase authority for the UK market with period ending until the earlier of 25 October 2019 (being the later date set out in in the resolution granting authority at the 2018 AGM) and the ...
La société a annoncé depuis son entrée en bourse sa volonté de diversifier son conseil d'administration, qui n'est composé que d'une femme (représentante d'une société administratrice) et que d'un membre indépendant (les taux d'indépendance et de féminisation ne sont donc que de 25%). De plus, l'actionnaire majoritaire, Apax, est surreprésenté au conseil, en possédant la moitié des sièges, pour une participation au capital de 42,19%. Si l'entrée en bourse de la société est récente, nous l'incitons fortement à prendre en compte cette nécessité de diversifier son conseil. Le renouvellement de ...
