Mercialys, a French-law public limited company (société anonyme), has opted for the governance structure with a Board of Directors.
In accordance with the Board of Directors’ rules of procedure, each Director must hold a number of shares in the Company that corresponds to the equivalent of one year’s Directors’ fees. In accordance with the Company’s bylaws and the AFEP-MEDEF Code, the Board of Directors is partly renewed each year.
As part of the duties assigned to it, the Appointments, Remuneration and Governance Committee conducts its annual review of the operations and composition of the Board of Directors in the light of governance regulations, paying particular attention to the representation of independent members and women on the Board, as well as the experience, complementary backgrounds and skills of Board members.
Within this framework, the committee reviews the situation of each Director in the light of any connections with Group companies that may compromise his or her judgment or engender a conflict of interest.
The Board of Directors comprises of 9 directors, 7 of whom are independent directors (78%) and 5 of whom are women (56%).
