Eramet: Statement from the Board of Directors
During its meeting on 30 March 2021, the Board of Directors unanimously approved the resolutions which will be put to the vote at the General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on 28 May.
The Board of Directors unanimously proposes to the General Meeting of Shareholders to renew Christel Bories' term of office as director for a four-year period and indicates that it will also propose Christel Bories' appointment as Chair and CEO after the General Meeting of Shareholders.
The Board of Directors assessed positively Christel Bories' term of office as Chair and CEO during her first mandate, considering that she succeeded in leading the development of the Group in an often tough environment and in carrying out a deep transformation, including through an ambitious new approach to turn Eramet into a key player in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility.
The Board of Directors intends the Group roadmap to be continued under the leadership of Christel Bories, to whom it renews its trust.
Moreover, the Board of Directors intends to change the Company's governance in the future towards separating the roles of Chair and CEO before the end of the new term of office of Christel Bories.
The Board of Directors also proceeded to designate a Lead Director as provided in Eramet's Articles of Association since May 2020 and appointed François Corbin as Lead Director.
Information about the General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on 28 May 2021 and resolutions which will be put to the vote will be made available on the Company's website, under the "Governance" section, after the notice of meeting is published on 7 April 2021 in the Newspaper of legal notices.
For Christel Bories: "In the race for the responsible transformation of raw materials, Eramet must play a leading role for the industry. It is with enthusiasm that I welcome the perspective of continuing the action initiated with the teams since 2017 at the head of the Group."
