Proximus April 17th, 2019

In general, Proximus is in compliance with the Belgian regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.After the AGM, the board of Directors will compromise 9-non executive directors, and seven members are concidered to be independant (77.8%) according to ECGS. Mrs Leroy, the CEO also sits on the board. ECGS notes that the level of disclosure concerning the Company's executive remuneration (specifically relating to the level of transparency) is weak and could be improved. It favors the strong deferral elevement attached to the ST variable salary of the CEO and furthermore deems the aggregate level of executive compensation fairly moderate regarding the sector and Belgian standards. ECGS recommends to vote FOR all proposals. There are no further peculiarities.
