All the resolutions were adopted at Faurecia's Annual Shareholders’ Meeting held in Paris today under the chairmanship of Michel de Rosen.
The shareholders approved the decision taken by the Board of Directors on October 12 to appoint Valérie Landon to the Board.
Following the resignation of Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, effective at the close of the meeting, the Faurecia Board of Directors now comprises 15 members, including two employee representatives, Daniel Bernardino and Emmanuel Pioche, who took up their position on November 1, 2017. The Board has eight independent members and six women.
The Annual Shareholders Meeting approved the distribution of a gross dividend of €1.10 per share, to be paid in cash. The ex-coupon date will be June 1, 2018, and the dividend will be paid on June 5, 2018.
Shareholders also approved the plan to convert Faurecia (SA) into a European Company (SE), a change of status that will come into effect on completion of the negotiations related to the creation and functioning of the European Company Committee.
Michel de Rosen, Chairman of the Board of Faurecia stated: “Jean-Pierre Clamadieu has chosen to step down from the Faurecia Board of Directors, which he first joined in May 2007, to focus on other responsibilities. We are sad to see him leave. On behalf of the entire Board I would like to extend my deepest thanks for his significant contribution to the Board and for his chairmanship of the governance committee. I would also like to express our gratitude to Amparo Moraleda who has accompanied us since 2012 with great professionalism, particularly as a member of the governance and audit committees.”
