Ubisoft, 02 July 2019

ITEM 5: The Company’s disclosure on its Chairman and CEO's annual bonus is one of the best in the SBF120 as it not only clearly discloses targets that need to be achieved in 2018-2019, but also targets that will have to be achieved in 2019-2020. In addition, amounts are acceptable and structure is quite similar to our recommendations. Thus, we support item 5

ITEM 6: Changes proposed for the 2019-2020 Chairman and CEO’s remuneration policy are a 3%-increase of the fixed remuneration and the addition of a CSR criterion to the annual bonus. The 3%-increase of the fixed remuneration increases all amounts at stake; however, they remain acceptable. The addition of a CSR criterion to the annual bonus is a positive improvement, especially considering that this criterion seems very appropriate regarding the company’s business. Thus, we support item 6
