Annual General Meeting Of September 29, 2016: Ubisoft Shareholders Express Their Support for Ubisoft Strategy and Management
Quorum was established at 76.54%. The shareholders expressed massive support for the strategy and the management of Ubisoft, approving all the ordinary resolutions submitted at the AGM, in particular:
The re-election of Mr. Yves Guillemot and Mr. Gérard Guillemot as directors;
The appointment of two new independent directors, Frédérique Dame et Florence Naviner;
The components of the compensation of the Company’s executive corporate officers for the financial year ended March 31, 2016.
Within the extraordinary portion of the General Meeting, some resolutions were rejected due to Vivendi’s systematic obstruction, impeding the proper functioning of the Company, in particular regarding its competitive compensation policy for its talents.
The detailed results of the votes are available on the Company's website under the section "General Meeting".
