Shareholder meetings

AkzoNobel's shareholders meet at least once a year at the Annual General Meeting of shareholders (AGM).

Typically, the Annual General Meeting reviews the annual report and decides on the adoption of the financial statements and the dividend proposal, as well as the discharge of the members of the Supervisory Board and the Board of Management. The AGM also addresses a number of other issues and votes on proposals regarding:

• The election of members of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board
• The remuneration of the members of the Supervisory Board
• Material changes to the remuneration policy of the Board of Management
• Other important matters, such as major acquisitions or the sale of a substantial part of the company, as required by law
• The authorization of the Board of Management to issue new shares

The AGM is convened by public notice. AkzoNobel provides remote voting possibilities for its shareholders. The AGM agenda, the notes to the agenda and the procedure for attendance – including the record date and the procedure for granting a proxy to a third party – are published in advance and posted on the company’s website.

The 2016 AGM was held on Wednesday, April 20. Find out what was on the agenda and download related documents on our AGM page.

Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders

In addition to the Annual General Meeting, we also hold Extraordinary General Meetings of shareholders (EGM) to discuss important company issues. Our last EGM took place on October 8, 2014, when shareholders were asked to approve the appointment of Maëlys Castella as a member of the Board of Management.
