Important information: In the changing context of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, and taking into account the restrictions on travel and gatherings rolled out by the public authorities in response to the current health crisis, the conditions for organizing the General Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on April 23, 2020 may change in line with health and/or legal requirements.

Where possible, and for their own safety, shareholders are advised to avoid traveling. The General Meeting will therefore be streamed live on Gecina’s website (www.gecina.fr) and online voting will be set up with the secure voting platform VOTACCESS.

General Meetings

General Meetings are a special time for the shareholders and the managers, but also an opportunity to play a part in Group’s decisions.

 

How to attend?

 

Any person holding at least one Company share three business days before the meeting may attend a General Meeting. One voting right is attributed to each share.

 

What are the types of meetings?

 

  • Ordinary General Meeting (OGM)
    It is held once a year to provide shareholders with a report on the Company’s management, results and strategy. This presentation is followed by a discussion between the shareholders and the executives of the Company, and then by voting on the resolutions (concerning the members of the Board of Directors, the approval of financial statements, determining the dividend, etc.). Decisions are taken by a simple majority.
     

  • Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)
    It is convened when this is required to take important decisions, in particular the statutory changes. The decisions are taken by a majority of two thirds of the voting rights.

     

  • Combined General Meeting (CGM)
    It is a general meeting which combines an GM and EGM on the same date and on the same invitation for practical reasons.

 

How can I be informed of the holding of a General Meeting?

 

If you are a registered shareholder, you will automatically receive your meeting invitation documents at your home address, at least 15 days before the date of the General Meeting.
