Etude de l'AG du 27/04/2017

Cette année, Proxinvest note un manque de contre-pouvoir dans la société car en plus du cumul des rôles de Président et de Directeur Général, le Vice-Président n’est pas indépendant et les réunions des administrateurs hors dirigeants ne sont pas généralisées. Ainsi Proxinvest s’oppose aux renouvellements du Président-Directeur Général et du Vice-Président.

Par ailleurs, nous notons que la société n’a pas soumis les conventions règlementées au vote des actionnaires. Or, selon l’article L.224-40 du Code de commerce, l’assemblée générale annuelle statue sur le rapport spécial des commissaires aux comptes. Il s'agit d'un vote obligatoire et non facultatif pour toute assemblée générale ordinaire, même en absence de nouvelles conventions. Selon Proxinvest, cette omission constitue une faute de gestion.
