Atos’ Ordinary General Meeting
Paris, October 27, 2020,
Atos SE’s Ordinary General Meeting of shareholders was held today behind closed doors due to the sanitary constraints resulting from the COVID-19 epidemic.
The General Meeting gathered to express an opinion on the Company's medium-term guidelines and to decide on the appointment of Edouard Philippe as a Director. The shareholders largely approved the resolutions presented.
Atos SE’s self-developed voting application based on blockchain technology was used by its employee shareholders for the second time.
The General Meeting strongly supported the Company's medium-term guidelines, as approved by the Board of Directors on the proposal of the Chief Executive Officer (99.99%), thus confirming their relevance. The Meeting also approved the appointment of Edouard Philippe as Director with a very high rate (99.88%).
The detailed results of the votes of the General Meeting are available on Atos website (Investors section – General Meeting).
Further to the first test carried out at the Annual General Meeting held on June 16, 2020, Atos SE has again made available to eligible employee shareholders its self-developed voting platform Atos Vote© using blockchain technology, available on Android and iOS smartphones.
Thanks to the work carried out in collaboration with Société Générale Securities Services, the application Atos Vote© that collects shareholders' voting instructions through this new secure and innovative transmission channel now exchanges this information with the centralizing bank.
Atos Vote© now offers voting shareholders, in addition to downloading a certificate of transmission of their voting instructions, the possibility to request confirmation that their vote has been taken into account.
Atos is currently discussing with key players in the market a potential extension of the utilization of this application for the benefit of other users.
Further information regarding the application Atos Vote© is available on a dedicated page of Atos website.
