Only one SUEZ share is required in order to attend the Annual General Meeting.

Announcement of the Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting is convened in the Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires (BALO) via the publication of a preliminary notice, serving as the official notice of the Meeting, at least 35 trading days before the scheduled date of the Annual General Meeting, specifying the date, time and location and containing in particular the agenda for the Meeting, the text of the resolutions, as well as the conditions for attending the aforementioned Meeting;

The Meeting is also announced by the publication of a notice in the press.

Conditions for attending the General Meeting

Any shareholder whose shares have been registered in a share account 2 business days prior to the date of the Meeting, i.e. by April 26, 2016, may attend on the following express conditions:

If you are a registered shareholder, you will automatically receive a notice to attend the Meeting at least 15 days beforehand which will notably include :

  • a summary presentation on changes to the business and sales turnover, etc.,
  • the agenda for the Meeting,
  • the main characteristics of the Meeting and the draft Resolutions to be submitted to a vote at the Meeting,

Otherwise, SUEZ offers you to choose « e-convocation » i.e. the option to receiving your Notice of Meeting by e-mail. By opting for e-convocation, you are choosing a simple, fast, secure and economical notice form. Thereby, you are helping to protect the environment in reducing our carbon impact by avoiding the printing and mailing of paper Notices of Meeting by post.

 

Registered shareholders can register to attend on the day of the General Meeting, provided they have proof of identity. In order to avoid delays in registration, however, it is highly recommended to return the voting form prior to the General Meeting.

If you hold SUEZ bearer shares, the notice to attend is not automatically sent to you, it must be requested from your financial intermediary.
Once you have filled in, dated and signed the form, it must be sent to your financial intermediary who will forward it to CACEIS Corporate Trust together with a shareholder certificate (proving your status as a shareholder in the Company) at the latest 3 business days before the date of the Meeting, i.e. by midnight on April 25, 2016 (Paris time).

Bearer shareholders who have not received the admission cards they have requested should arrive on the day of the Meeting, and go to the “shareholders with no card” counter, together with a shareholding certificate, which should be obtained from their financial intermediary, at the latest 3 business days before the date of the General Meeting, i.e. by midnight on April 25, 2016 (Paris time).
