How to take part in the Annual General Meeting?
The Annual General Meeting of the L'Oréal shareholders was held on Thursday 18 April 2019 at 10.00 a.m. (CET) at the Palais des Congrès de Paris - 2, place de la Porte Maillot - 75017 Paris, France.
All shareholders have the right to attend the Annual General Meeting regardless of the number of shares held or their way of custody (registered or bearer shares). The right to participate in the meeting is subject to the accounting registration of the shares no later than the third working day prior to the Annual General Meeting, namely on Tuesday 16 April 2019, at zero hour (Paris local time).
Please note that any shareholder who has already cast a vote, applied for an entrance card or requested a certificate of participation (Article R. 225-85 of the French Commercial Code):
- can no longer choose any other method of participation in the meeting;
- has the possibility of selling all or part of his/her shares.
However, if the transaction is settled before Tuesday 16 April 2019 at zero hour (Paris local time), the Company will invalidate or modify accordingly, as the case may be, the vote cast, the proxy form, the entrance card or the shareholding certificate.
Accordingly, the authorised custodian notifies the sale to the company or to its authorised agent, and transmits to it the necessary information.
No transfer of ownership carried out after Tuesday 16 April 2019 at zero hour (Paris time) whatever the means used, will be notified by the authorised custodian or taken into consideration by the company, notwithstanding any agreement to the contrary.
R. 225-79 of the French Commercial Code now makes it possible to revoke a proxy who has previously been appointed. The proxy given for an Annual General Meeting can be revoked in the same forms as are required to appoint the proxy.
