Brussels, May 14, 2019, 16u00 --- Solvay today held its General Shareholders' Meeting at The Square - Brussels Meeting Center.
Shareholders voted in favor of all the resolutions proposed. More specifically, they approved the payment of a gross dividend of € 3.75 per share for the year 2018. After deduction of the interim dividend of € 1.44 gross per share, paid in January 2019, the balance amounts to € 2.31 gross per share, payable as of May 23, 2019.
During the General Shareholders Meeting, shareholders also approved the re-election of Mrs. Marjan Oudeman as independent director and Mr. Charles Casimir-Lambert as director of the Board, both for a four-year term. The shareholders also confirmed the mandate of Mrs. Ilham Kadri as director. Mr. Yves-Thibault de Silguy has reached the statutory age limit and therefore did not seek re-appointment. The number of directors therefore falls from 16 to 15.
The Board has unanimously decided to appoint Mrs. Amparo Moraleda to chair the Nominations Committee, succeeding to Mr. Yves-Thibault de Silguy.
