Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report The structure is unsatisfactory, though it is sufficiently weighted toward the long-term. Nevertheless, the bonus exceeds guidelines, qualitative criteria exceed our limits, and the severance provisions exceed guidelines. Although the pension contribution for the year was within guidelines, the accrual rate used to calculate the pension contribution is not disclosed. There is overlap between the performance conditions used for the STI and LTI with cash flow from operating activites accounting for 30% of the bonus and 25% of the LTI. Actual and potenti...
With the restoration of its cash dividend, Shell has demonstrated that it has taken the necessary steps to remain competitive in a world of $60/barrel oil. Like the rest of the integrated group, Shell has reduced its cost base, which had become bloated, in part by reducing headcount and improving its supply chain. Furthermore, the addition of BG’s low-cost production reduces Shell’s per-barrel operating cost, which ranked among the highest in its peer group. Shell already reduced operating cost by 20% from 2014 levels and holds that potential further reductions are possible in later years.At t...

Même si la société est familiale et contrôlée, la gouvernance présente de nombreuses faiblesses qui ne respectent pas les principes de Proxinvest avec notamment un conseil composé très majoritairement de membres non-libre de conflits d'intérêts, l'existence de droits de vote double. La société propose de reverser un dividende de 0,80 € aux actionnaires. Compte tenu de son endettement significatif, la société devrait allouer cette somme à l’apurement de ses dettes. Par ailleurs la société s’autorise toujours à intervenir en période d’offre publique, cela ne respecte pas nos préconisations. E...
La présenté assemblée se concentre essentiellement sur la nomination de Julie Walbaum au poste de Directrice Générale. Ainsi il est proposé aux actionnaires d'approuver la clause de non-concurrence de la nouvelle dirigeante. Proxinvest recommande une durée de 2 années pour une compensation d'une année de rémunération. Ici la société propose une durée d'une année pour 50% de la rémunération annuelle. Proxinvest recommande d'approuver cet engagement au regard des montants. Ensuite concernant les rémunérations Proxinvest recommandera de s'opposer à la rémunération attribuée en 2018 à Julie Walb...
L'ensemble des rémunérations des dirigeants mandataires sociaux font l'objet des résolutions 6 à 11. La particularité d'Infotel est de présenter des politiques de rémunération ne comportant aucune part variable. Cette spécificité n'est pas en accord avec notre politique de vote. Toutefois, les mandataires sociaux dirigeants sont tous actionnaires à au moins 1,99% du capital et les montants sont raisonnables, ce qui atténue nos réserves et permet des recommandations positives. Les caractéristiques du conseil d'administration ne répondent pas à nos attentes en matière de gouvernance puisqu'il e...
