Etude de l'AG du 20/04/2017

​ Under agenda item 8, it is proposed to authorize the Executive Board to acquire shares in the company. We have concerns over share repurchases in connection with the EPS measure used for the LTI. Share repurchases increase EPS and could potentially lead to gaming. Therefore we recommend to OPPOSE.
