Shares and Voting Right


The number of theoretical (or gross) voting rights is used as a basis for calculating threshold crossings; it includes the voting rights attached to non-voting shares (treasury shares, liquidity agreements, etc.). See AMF 17 July 2007 note and article L.233-7 of the French code of commerce.

By-Laws

Crossing of statutory thresholds

(Excerpt from By-laws, article 8, following the Extraordinary General Meeting of 1 June 2006) 

In addition to the declarations of crossing thresholds expressly provided by Articles L. 233-7-I and II of the French Code de Commerce, any shareholder (individual or corporate body) that acquires, directly or indirectly by means of companies controlled by the shareholder within the meaning of Article L. 233-3 of the French Code de Commerce, acting singly or jointly, a number of the Company’s bearer shares equal to or greater than three (3), four (4), six (6), seven (7), eight (8), nine (9) and twelve and half (12.5) per cent of the total number of shares making up the share capital must, within five (5) trading days of crossing said threshold, inform the Company of the total number of shares it holds, by letter sent by recorded delivery with advice of receipt to the Company’s registered office. 

Double voting rights 
(Excerpt from By-laws, article 12-4. Original by-laws) 
4. Holding General Meetings 
Each member of a General Meeting shall have as many votes as shares he or she owns or represents, in the absence of legal provisions to the contrary. 
However, shares that have been paid up in full and which can be shown to have been registered for four years in the name of the same shareholder shall have a voting right that shall be double that granted to other shares. 

Dividends

The annual shareholders’ meeting on 23 May 2019 approved the allocation of income from the 2018 fiscal year. No dividends will be issued from the 2018 fiscal year.

Vallourec ADR

Sponsored ADR program in the United States 

ADRs have been issued to allow American investors to buy Vallourec shares even though the group is not listed on the American stock market. An ADR (American Depositary Receipt) is an American negotiable security that represents shares of a company listed outside of the United States. It allows American investors to hold shares indirectly and to trade them on the securities markets. 

Vallourec has engaged the bank JPMorgan to issue ADRs that represent Vallourec shares with dividends and voting rights included. As the depositary bank, JPMorgan is required to distribute the dividends in U.S. dollars and facilitate voting participation for ADR holders.

Vallourec ADRs have been trading on the American over-the-counter (OTC) market since 4 October 2010.
