Attending Annual General Meetings
The purpose of the Annual General Meeting is to approve the accounts of the preceding financial period, to decide on the distribution of dividends and to pass judgement on the Group’s administrative instances.
A single SUEZ share is all that is required to attend the Annual General Meeting.
The Annual General Meeting is announced via the Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires (BALO).
