BNP Paribas - AGM 23 May 2019

ITEM 12: ECGS supports the 2019 executives’ remuneration policy as the company
proposes 2 positive changes: the addition of a CSR criterion distinct from the other
qualitative criteria and the confirmation by the Board and the CEO that he could not
benefit from his non-compete agreement if he retires or after 65 years old, in accordance
with the Afep/Medef code as revised in June 2018.

ITEMS 14 and 15: Likewise, we support the amounts granted in 2018 to executives as
they are acceptable. We note however that more disclosure, mainly on targets to achieve
and vesting scales, could improve shareholders' understanding of amounts granted.
