General meetings

Each year, SoLocal Group makes every effort to ensure that its General Meeting is a unique moment of exchange and information. In favor of shareholder democracy, SoLocal Group encourages the participation of the largest number of its shareholders.

 

HOW IT WORKS

An Ordinary Annual General Meeting is held once a year within six months of the end of the fiscal year. Its purpose is to inform shareholders about the Group’s activity and results, approve the financial statements and the dividend amount, appoint or reappoint members of the Board of Directors and the Statutory Auditors and, lastly, authorize any of the company’s day-to-day management operations. Resolutions presented at an Ordinary Annual General Meeting are adopted by a simple majority of shareholders present or represented.


An Extraordinary Annual General Meeting is convened when the company wishes to submit for shareholder approval a change in the articles of association or a transaction affecting the capital (increase, decrease, merger, etc.). The resolutions can only be adopted by a majority of two-thirds of the capital present or represented.


The Group generally convenes a combined Annual General Meeting (an Ordinary and an Extraordinary Annual General Meeting convened on the same date by a single notice). Whether the quorum and majority conditions of the Ordinary Annual General Meeting or Extraordinary Annual General Meeting apply depends on the resolution.
