Dassault Systèmes - AGM 23 May 2019

Item 8: This year again, Bernard Charlès is among the most well paid French CEOs as,
for 2018, his total remuneration according to the company amounts to €22.9 M, i.e. 489%
of the CAC40 median and 501% of the Technology sector of the MSCI Europe. It
represents 1,098 times the French minimum wage (SMIC) which considerably exceeds
our 240 SMIC limit.
We note that in 2018, the company also granted 300,000 performance shares to Mr
Charlès in anticipation of 2019 in order to benefit from the legal regime of the
authorization of the General Meeting of September 4, 2015 which was to expire on
November 4, 2018. As this grant was made for 2019, ECGS will take it into account in the
2019 remuneration (i.e. next year).
