Shareholders may attend this meeting regardless of the number of shares they hold, notwithstanding any statutory provisions to the contrary.

Shareholders may participate in shareholders' meetings if shares have been recorded in their own name in the registered securities account held by the company or in the bearer securities account held by the authorised intermediary on their behalf, pursuant to Article L. 228-1 of the French Commercial Code, at midnight Paris time on the second business day prior to the meeting.

If your shares are registered in a bearer securities account held by an authorised intermediary, the latter must certify participation, by email where relevant, under the conditions set out in Article R. 225-61 of the French Commercial Code, and append this certification to the form for voting by mail or proxy, or to the request for an admission card established in the shareholder’s name or in the name of the registered intermediary on behalf of the shareholder.

If you cannot attend the meeting in person, you may select one of the following three options:

  1. send a proxy to the company without indicating your representative;
  2. give your proxy to another shareholder, your spouse or partner under a civil solidarity pact;
  3. vote by mail.

Shareholders who have already indicated their vote by mail, sent their proxy or requested their admission card or certificate of participation may sell all or some of their shares at any time. However, if the transfer of ownership occurs before midnight Paris time on the second business day before the meeting, the company shall invalidate or change, where relevant, the vote by mail, the proxy, the admission card or the certificate of participation. To this end, the authorised account keeper must notify the company or its representative of the transfer of ownership and send it all relevant information.

Shareholders registered in an issuer account or managed account will automatically receive their forms by post for voting by mail or proxy.

In accordance with the law, all of the documents for this shareholders’ meeting will be sent to the shareholders, within the statutory deadlines, upon request to the Management Company of the METROPOLE FUNDS SICAV at juridique@metropolegestion.fr or by request to CACEIS Corporate Trust.

For holders of bearer shares, the forms for voting by mail or proxy will be sent out on written request by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt to CACEIS Corporate Trust, Service Assemblées Générales Centralisées, 14, rue Rouget de Lisle, 92862 ISSY-LES-MOULINEAUX Cedex 9, France six days before the date of the meeting at the latest.
