Resolutions 4 and 5 seek the appointment of two new members of the Supervisory Board: Gilles Schnepp, independent, and Thierry de la Tour d'Artaise, not independent according to ECGS (presented as independent by the company). The Board’s low independence rate leads us to recommend opposition to the second appointment (resolution 5). However, Gilles Schnepp's candidacy will be supported (resolution 4).
This year again, the company proposes to vote on a resolution allowing the allocation of anti-takeover warrants (“Bons Breton”), even though a similar resolution has been adopted with only 73.54% of the votes at the previous General Meeting (resolution 24).
The remuneration of the Chairman of the Executive Board amounts to € 7.6 million, an amount that is too high (resolution 9). On the other hand, the remuneration policy for the 2019 financial year includes some improvements, which allow us to support resolutions 6 and 7.

Item 3: Approve the Remuneration ReportThe remuneration structure is satisfactory, though accelerated vesting is possible. Potential and actual total variable remuneration exceed guidelines, but not very much. They are moderate in comparison with UK market practice. Overall, the quantum during the year was not excessive. We recommend shareholders vote in favor.
Item 3: Approve the Remuneration Report The structure is weighted more heavily towards short-term performance. One of the performance metrics for the LTI is the payment of sustainable dividends, which is not considered appropriate as executives can potentially influence the payout level. The LTI also includes relative TSR as a performance metric. Nevertheless, the quantum is not excessive and even maximum potential amounts are moderate. On balance, we recommend shareholders vote in favor. Item 4: Approve the Remuneration PolicyThe main concern with the Company's remuneration policy is that pa...
Item 2: Approve the Remuneration ReportThe remuneration structure is unsatisfactory. The main concern at the Company is that the potential maximum incentive pay including the bonus, matching shares on the deferred portion of the bonus and the LTI amounts to 1000% of base salary, which is considered grossly excessive. Actual incentive pay during the year was1.6 times the ECGS limit. Furthermore, variable remuneration is overly reliant on a single performance metric, benchmark profit before tax. A second performance criteria will be used in the coming year. We note that the Company has adjusted ...
NEGOCIATIONS SUR LA RESTRUCTURATION DE LA DETTE La situation financière de Bourbon est catastrophique. La capitalisation boursière s'est effondrée au fil du temps et n'atteint plus que 144 M€ à comparer à une dette de 1,3 Md€ à laquelle s'ajoute 1,2 Md€ de crédit-bail (dont environ 1 Md€ auprès de la banque chinoise ICBC). En janvier dernier, Bourbon annonçait avoir, avec ses créanciers (représentant 75% de la dette du groupe), renouvelé le waiver général, l'autorisant ainsi à suspendre l'exigibilité de ses loyers et de sa dette. Le 5 juin 2019, les principaux créanciers du groupe (comprenan...

La société propose de renouveler Thierry Petit et David Dayan, co-fondateurs de la société, qui se partagent les rôles de Président-Directeur Général et de Directeur Général délégué selon un mécanisme de présidence tournante tous les 2 ans. En raison de l’absence de séparation des fonctions de Président du conseil et de Directeur général, il semble que les actionnaires aient intérêt à émettre un signal négatif d'autant que le conseil n'est pas majoritairement composé de membres libres de conflits d'intérêt potentiels et que les deux co-fondateurs bénéficient de droits de vote double (résolutio...
