Item 5: We recommend opposing the re-election of KPMG as auditor. While we have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees we note that KPMG has audited the Company since the financial year 2002 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office of 10 years in case no audit tender has taken place after the initial engagement period which has not been disclosed by the Company.
Items 6a, 6b, 6e, 6f and 6g: We recommend to oppose the re-election of various Board members due to concerns over aggregate time commitments or independence concerns.

A plus de 3 écarts types de la moyenne 10 ans, l’écart de PE value-growth n’a jamais été aussi important. La rotation est-elle imminente ? Non si l’on parle d’une rotation « classique » car les moteurs de la surperformance de la croissance (érosion croissance BPA, taux faibles, ralentissement macro) sont encore allumés. Oui si l’on change de perspective en favorisant le segment « value » de l’univers croissance/ qualité. Notre scoring met en avant Personal & Household goods, Healthcar...
At over three standard deviations from the 10-year average, the P/E value-growth gap has never been so great. Is rotation imminent? Not if we speak about a “classic” rotation since the drivers causing growth to outperform (erosion in EPS growth, low rates and a macroeconomic slowdown) are still running. But the answer is yes if we change perspective by favouring the “value” segment of the growth-quality universe. Our scoring highlights personal & household goods, healthcare, oil, util...

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 ...
