Assemblée générale mixte particulièrement contestée pour cette société soumise à un plan de restructuration très critiqué par les actionnaires. La communication financière de la société pose de réels soucis ainsi que la composition du conseil et son comportement très critiqués publiquement par l'association des porteurs individuels RegroupementPPLocal (1400 membres) en raison de l'évolution du cours depuis la mi-2015 et du plan de restructuration proposé. L'approbation des comptes sociaux et consolidés appelle de sérieuses réserves. Il en est aussi des autorisations financières proposées en ligne avec un plan de restructuration aussi complexe que dilutif et jugé trop favorable aux créanciers aux dépens des anciens actionnaires. Sept administrateurs indépendants sont proposés par ladite association qui demande en outre la révocation de cinq administrateurs sortants : Robert de Metz, Jean-Pierre Remy, Cécile Moulard Rémy Sautter et, Jean-Marc Tassetto.
Proxinvest soutient pleinement la démarche de cette association, le comportement anti-actionnarial de cette société étant inexplicable.

On 9 May 2019, the Company issued convertible bonds for a total principal amount of EUR 150 million. The sole agenda item relates to the proposed approval and ratification, in accordance with Article 556 of the Belgian Companies Code, of conditions of the convertible bonds in case of a change of control. These are standard provisions and they are in line with the market practice. Hence, we see no reason for shareholder concern and recommend to approve.

Strong increase in dividend following high results during the year under review. Clear compliance statement with the Corporate Governance rules defined by the Budapest Stock Exchange. Interesting governance model made of three bodies : an executive Board, a Board of Directors and a supervisory board. However, ECGS guidelines are not fully satisfied : - no yearly vote on executive remuneration ("Say On Pay")- Lack of checks and balances (combined chairman-CEO, independence of the Board of Directors, participation of the chairman-CEO in the Governance and remuneration committee).
Lors de l'assemblée générale du 19 octobre de Solocal Group, le plan de restructuration proposé avait été rejeté.
