En 2017, Arthur Sadoun est devenu Président du Directoire en succédant à Maurice Lévy, 75 ans, qui est aujourd’hui Président du Conseil de Surveillance en remplacement d'Elisabeth Badinter, principale actionnaire.
Pour les fonctions de Président du Conseil, la Société propose à Maurice Lévy une rémunération fixe de 2,8 M€, ce qui est inhabituellement élevé pour un Président non exécutif et 9,5 fois plus élevé que la rémunération perçue par Elisabeth Badinter en 2016 en tant que Présidente du Conseil.
De manière générale, les rémunérations des mandataires sociaux dirigeants de Publicis sont globalement très importantes : Arthur Sadoun pourrait se voir attribuer une rémunération de 8 M€ pour 2018, notamment en raison d’une attribution d’actions exceptionnelle valant à elle seule 6 M€.
Proxinvest salue l'amélioration du taux d'indépendance du conseil suite au départ de deux administrateurs indépendants selon la société mais non libres de conflits d'intérêts selon Proxinvest, et à l'arrivée de Cherie Nursalim, candidate livre d'intérêts.

After the strong margin compression in H1 2019, European steelmaker fundamentals are likely to remain complicated in H2. The lack of visibility as to the timing of a recovery is likely to deter investors from returning to the segment despite historically low valuations. We reiterate our Buy rating on ArcelorMittal, which is the most exposed to spot prices (“the first to pick up”). Conversely, we downgrade Voestalpine, which fully played its role as the most defensive stock in the turm...
Nous tablons sur un S1 2019 difficile, pénalisé par des effets de base et des conditions climatiques volatiles. Nous confirmons notre hiérarchie sectorielle, les prises de profits pré-publication pourraient permettre de se repositionner, à bon compte, sur le secteur des Matériaux alors que celui de la Construction/Concessions pourrait constituer un refuge. Saint-Gobain et Eiffage restent nos valeurs préférées. - Cf. étude publiée hier soir après la clôture. - ...
>Let’s be clear, consultancies are not the main threat - In this update, we are reviewing the risk posed by consultancies (Accenture, Deloitte, PWC etc.) to advertising agencies. The consensus currently sees these consulting firms as the main threat to the industry and a major culprit for the current slowdown in growth experienced by agencies. We reiterate our stance that this risk is very much overdone. IT services companies are not, as yet, competitive enough t...
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 ...
Leadership changes Vittorio Colao was succeeded by Nick Read who was appointed Chief Executive Designate on 27 July 2018 and became Chief Executive on 1 October 2018. Margherita Della Valle joined the Board as Chief Financial Officer on 27 July 2018. Item 15: Advisory vote on the Remuneration ReportThe structure is unsatisfactory. The maximum bonus and total incentive pay exceed guidelines. The quantum for the year was excessive. Pay weighted more towards rewarding long-term performance, but there are overlapping performance conditions as free cash flow was used for both the STI and LTI. A b...
