Holding your shares in registered form
You can hold your shares in registered form (i.e. registered on your name) or in bearer form.
By holding you shares in registered form, you allow Nexans to know you and to inform you personally of the publication of letters to shareholders and of the calling of shareholders meeting.
If you so choose, the shares can be registered directly with Nexans (“nominative pur”). This implies that you transfer your shares from your bank to the Nexans share account holder, Société Générale. In such case, please contact the “Share Accounts” department at Société Générale (Service Titres) at Tel: +33 2 51 85 67 89
All shareholders are entitled to attend shareholders’ meetings provided that they can prove their identity and their ownership of shares.
Subject to applicable laws and the Company’s bylaws, each shareholder shall have a number of votes equal to the number of shares that he or she holds or represents.
In accordance with Article 21 of the bylaws (modified on November 10, 2011), a shareholder may not exercise more than 20% of the voting rights attached to the shares of all shareholders present or represented at extraordinary shareholders’ meetings when voting on resolutions relating to strategic transactions (such as mergers or major acquisitions). This limitation shall become automatically null and void as soon as an individual or a legal entity holds at least 66.66 % of the total number of shares in the Company, whether individually or together with one or more individuals or legal entities, as a result of a takeover bid by way of purchase or exchange of shares for all the Company’s shares.
