The Shareholders’ Meeting provided an opportunity for Paul Hermelin to communicate his vision of Capgemini in the years to come. The Chief Operating Officers also spoke; Thierry Delaporte on the evolution of the Group’s service portfolio, and Aiman Ezzat on the management and development of the Group’s go-to-market.
Paul Hermelin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Capgemini Group, stated: “Bolstered by the repeated support of its shareholders and the Board of Directors – whom I would like to thank – Capgemini can reaffirm its ambitions: to position itself as an industry leader through the quality of its customer references, its offers and its talent. We are also committed to digital inclusion, which is a priority for us in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility.”
Shareholders adopted the distribution of a dividend of €1.70 per share for fiscal year 2017. The dividend will be paid from June 6, 2018, with an ex-dividend date of June 4, 2018.
The Shareholders’ Meeting approved the following resolutions on the Board’s composition:
Following this Shareholders’ Meeting, Capgemini SE’s Board of Directors has 13 directors, including two directors representing employees. 80% of directors are independent and 45% are women, with a reduced average age of 59 years old. This reflects the Board’s desire to combine efforts in recent years to renew its composition, increase the number of women, and diversify profiles within a reduced number of directors; to reinforce cohesion and collective and efficient decision-making. In line with its diversity policy, the Board will continue the international diversification of its composition in the coming years.
The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer’s 2017 compensation components were approved, along with the principles and criteria for determining the remuneration of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and the two Chief Operating Officers. The Shareholders’ Meeting also approved the regulated commitments concerning the Chief Operating Officers, Thierry Delaporte and Aiman Ezzat.
Finally, the Shareholders’ Meeting approved all the financial delegations granted to the Board of Directors.
