Faurecia - AGM and EGM 28 May 2019

The mandates of the statutory auditors are coming to an end. It is therefore proposed to renew the mandate of Ernst & Young and to approve the appointment of Mazars to replace PriceWaterhouseCooper. The latter will be supported, but the renewal of Ernst & Young in office for 36 years will not be supported.

 Of the five appointments and cooptations proposed, only two will be supported. Indeed, three candidates are considered as non-independent by ECGS while the Board presents a majority of members who are not free of potential conflicts of interest (resolutions 7 to 11).

 The main change in the Chief Executive Officer's remuneration policy is the increase in the fixed remuneration (+9%), which had already been increased in 2017 (+9.5%) and 2018 (+10%), which does not respect the spirit of the Afep-Medef's recommendations. As a result, the attributable amounts of the bonus, long-term and total may also increase. Due to the inflationary nature of this new compensation policy, we recommend that shareholders oppose to Resolution 13.
