Vivendi Procedures for Obtaining or Consulting Information on the Combined General Shareholders’ Meeting to be Held on June 22, 2021
Important Notice: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and following the measures put in place by the authorities to limit its spread, the Shareholders' Meeting will be held "behind closed
doors" (à huis clos), i.e., without the physical presence of shareholders or other persons usually entitled to attend, at the Company's registered office located at 42, avenue de Friedland,
This decision has been made in accordance with French Ordinance No. 2020-321 of March 25, 2020, adapting the rules for meetings and deliberation of meetings and governing bodies of legal persons and entities without legal personality under private law due because of the COVID-19 pandemic, as modified and extended by French Ordinance No. 2020-1497 of December 2, 2020 and French Decree No. 2021-255 of March 9, 2021.
In fact, on the date of the convening of the Shareholders’ Meeting, administrative measures limiting or prohibiting movement or collective gatherings for health reasons prevent the physical presence at the Shareholders’ Meeting of its members.
Accordingly, no admission cards will be issued. The only way for shareholders to exercise their voting rights is to do so remotely or by mail, and prior to the Meeting. Shareholders are invited to vote by mail using the voting form or via the Internet using the secure voting platform VOTACCESS, or to give a proxy to the Chairman of the Meeting or to a third party of their choice in the same manner.
Shareholders are also encouraged to give preference to the electronic submission of all requests and documents.
Considering the technical difficulties remaining, in particular related to the remote and live authentification of all the Vivendi SE shareholders, no solution has been put in place to for Shareholders to participate at the Shareholders Meeting through a telephone or video conference call. The Shareholders' Meeting will be webcast live and available for replay on the Company's website www.vivendi.com.
Shareholders are invited to regularly consult the section dedicated to the Shareholders' Meeting on the Company’s website (www.vivendi.com). This section will be updated to specify, as applicable, the final terms and conditions for participating in the Shareholders' Meeting and/or to adapt them to any legislative or regulatory changes that may occur after the publication of this notice.
