INTRODUCTION & GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Accordion

These are mainly defined by their purpose and respective areas of intervention, as set out in the agenda.

Annual general meeting (AGM) 
This meeting is held annually with the aim of reporting on the accounts of the previous financial year and of setting the dividend and payment conditions. It appoints, renews and dismisses directors and statutory auditors, and ratifies any co-opting of directors by the board of directors. The meeting also reports on the agreements signed between the company and those associated with it. Decisions must be approved by a simple majority vote cast by the shareholders present or represented at the meeting.

Extraordinary general meeting (EGM) 
This meeting is convened each time a decision must be made that would modify the company statutes, particularly in terms of increases or reductions in capital. Decisions must be approved by a majority of two thirds of the shareholders present or represented at the meeting.

Combined Annual General Meeting (Combined AGM) 
This meeting combines the two previous meetings (AGM and EGM) on the same date, and under the same convening notice.
 

  • Bearer shareholders hold shares that are not registered with the issuer but are placed in an account with an intermediary and are therefore freely transferable.
  • Registered shareholders hold shares that are registered with the issuer (the company), which has custody of them. In non-listed companies, all shares are registered. In companies whose securities are listed on the stock market, only some shares are registered.

HOW TO TAKE PART AND VOTE IN SCOR'S GENERAL MEETING
Accordion

Any shareholder, regardless of the number of shares he or she owns, may attend this general meeting in person, vote by post or designate a proxy to vote on their behalf.
 

Any shareholder may also give a proxy to any natural or legal person of his or her choice (Article L.225-106 and Article L.22-10-39 of the French commercial code) to vote by post. 

Pursuant to Article R. 22-10-28 of the French commercial code, the right to participate in the general meeting is subject to formal registration of shares in the name of the shareholder or of the authorized intermediary acting on their behalf (pursuant to Article L.228-1 of the French commercial code), by T-0 (Paris Time) on the second (2nd) working day preceding the general meeting (i.e., Monday May 16, 2022), either in the registered share accounts held by the Company (or by its agent), or in the bearer share accounts held by the authorized intermediaries in accordance with Article L.211-3 of the French financial and monetary code. 
 
Only those shareholders fulfilling the conditions set forth in the aforementioned Article R.22-10-28 on the date of the general meeting will be eligible to participate.
 
The formal registration of the shares in the bearer share accounts held by the authorized financial intermediaries is confirmed by a participation certificate (attestation de participation) issued by the intermediaries (electronically or by post) under the conditions provided for in Article R.22-10-28 of the French commercial code (with reference to Article R.225-61 of the same code), which has to be annexed to:

  • the postal voting form;
  • the proxy voting form;
  • the request for an entry card (carte d’admission) under the name of the shareholder or on behalf of the shareholder represented by the registered intermediary.
     

Attending the general meeting (1)

Shareholders wishing to attend this general meeting in person should request an entry card (carte d’admission) by ticking box 1 “Je desire assister à cette assemblée et demande une carte d’admission” (“I wish to attend the shareholder’s meeting”) on the form and by returning their application for an entry card (carte d’admission) dated and signed:

  • For holders of registered shares: must send the request for an entry card (carte d’admission) directly to BNP Paribas Securities Services (CTO Assemblées Générales ; Les Grands Moulins de Pantin ; 9, rue du Débarcadère ; 93761 Pantin Cedex) or, on the day of the general meeting, the holders of registered shares can also go directly to the counter specifically created for this purpose with an identity document, 
     
  • For holders of bearer shares: must ask the authorized financial intermediary with whom their shares are registered, for a card to be sent to them. The account holder financial intermediary shall send the form to BNP Paribas Securities Services, an institution appointed by SCOR SE and in charge of the general meeting, along with a participation certificate (attestation de participation).

Any shareholder not attending the general meeting in person may choose one of the three following options:
 
To grant a proxy chairman (2)

The shareholder must tick box 2 “Je donne pouvoir au president de l’assemblée générale” (“I hereby give my proxy to the chairman of the general meeting”) on the form, date and sign the bottom of the form. In this case, the proxy will be granted to the chairman of the general meeting who will vote in favor of the draft resolutions presented or approved by the board of directors and vote against the approval of all the other draft resolutions.
 
To grant a proxy to any natural or legal person of his or her choice (3) 

The shareholder can designate a proxy who will agree to vote as instructed by the shareholder.

The shareholder must tick box 3 “Je donne pouvoir à” (“I hereby appoint”) on the form, specify the identity of his or her agent, then date and sign the bottom of the form.

If a proxy is granted without specifying the identity of the agent, the chairman of the general meeting will vote in favor of the draft resolutions presented or approved by the board of directors and vote against the approval of all the remaining draft resolutions. To perform any other vote, shareholders must designate a proxy who will agree to vote as instructed by the shareholder.

The appointment or removal of a proxy can also be electronically submitted to the Company via the Votaccess dedicated secure website of the general meeting by following the procedure hereinafter described.
 
To vote by post (4) 

The shareholder must tick box 4 “Je vote par correspondance” (“I vote by post”), specify his or her vote for each resolution and then date and sign the bottom of the form.
