IMPORTANT – HEALTH SITUATION
In view of the ongoing health crisis, the Company may have to modify the conditions for participating in the Annual General Meeting of May 20, 2021. Thus, in the event that the conditions set out in Order no. 2020-321 of March 25, 2020 (as amended by Order no. 2020-1497 of December 2, 2020) and Decree No. 2020-418 of April 10, 2020 (as amended by Decree no. 2020-1614 of December 18, 2020), as extended by Decree no. 2021-255 of March 9, 2021, are still met and/or that health conditions so require, the Annual General Meeting may be held behind closed doors.
Consequently, shareholders are encouraged to regularly consult the Company’s website at www.biomerieux.com (Investors > Shareholder Area > General Shareholders’ Meeting), which may be updated to specify the definitive conditions for participating in the Annual General Meeting, depending on health and/or legal requirements.
Furthermore, in view of the circulation of COVID-19 and the government recommendations to avoid public gatherings, the Board of Directors urges the utmost caution and recommends that each shareholder opt to vote by post or by giving proxy to the Chairman rather than attending in person.
The Company has taken all measures to facilitate remote voting so that shareholders may also vote without physically attending the Annual General Meeting, either by using the designated postal voting form available on bioMérieux’s website at www.biomerieux.com (Investors > Shareholder Area > General Shareholders’ Meeting) or by logging on to the VOTACCESS secure voting platform.
Shareholders are asked to send all requests and documents to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
