The Shareholders’ Meeting take place on April 20, 2020
At its meeting held on March 30, 2020, Vivendi’s Management Board decided that the Company’s Combined General Shareholders’ Meeting, convened for Monday, April 20, 2020, at 3:30 p.m., will be held at the Company’s head office located at 42, avenue de Friedland, 75008 Paris, and webcast live in its entirety on the Company’s website (www.vivendi.com). Shareholders or any other person entitled to attend the Meeting will not be present either in person or by telephone or audiovisual conferencing.
This decision was taken in light of the current health situation and the upgraded security measures instituted by the French authorities limiting the movement of individuals and ordering the closure of most French establishments open to the public.
Participating in Shareholders’ Meetings Your shares must be registered in a book-entry share account at Vivendi, or for bearer shares in an account at the financial institution that manages your shares, three business days before the meeting. A video webcast of the Shareholders’ Meeting is available on Vivendi’s website: http://www.vivendi.com
Registered shares (book-entry or administered) You will automatically receive a form that allows you to obtain the entry card required for participation in the Shareholders’ Meeting – simply mail the form back. You will be asked for this card when you sign the attendance register. If you are unable to attend the Shareholders’ Meeting, use the form that comes with your invitation, to be represented by your spouse or by another shareholder, to vote by mail, or to give a proxy authorization to the chairperson of the Shareholders’ Meeting.
Bearer shares If you have bought or hold your shares through your financial institution (bank, credit union, stock brokerage, etc.), without registering with Vivendi, you must request a ballot by mail, or an entry card, through your financial institution. On the day of the Shareholders’ Meeting, you must have an entry card or, alternatively, a certificate of participation issued by your financial institution.
If you are unable to attend the Shareholders’ Meeting, use the form given by your financial institution, to be represented by your spouse or by another shareholder, to vote by mail, or to give authorization to the chairperson of the Shareholders’ Meeting.
Important: In each case (to attend the Shareholders’ Meeting, to authorize a representative or to vote by mail), you must include the certificate of participation issued by your financial institution. You can also receive an invitation simply by requesting one from Shareholder Relations Departement at Toll-free number: 0805 050 050 (from a landline in France).
