Shareholders confirmed the co-optation and appointment of Jacques Thill as director. They furthermore elected Carlo Fassbinder and Jennifer Byrne, each for a two-year mandate, and re-elected Béatrice de Clermont-Tonnerre, Peter van Bommel and Françoise Thoma, each for another three-year mandate.


Shareholders also approved in principle a capital reduction of EUR 22 million and the cancellation of 12 million class A shares and 6 million class B shares.


Following the shareholders’ meeting, the Board of Directors elected Mr Frank Esser as Chairperson for a period of one year, Mrs Anne-Catherine Ries and Mr Peter van Bommel as Vice-Chairpersons also for a period of one year.
