A special gathering opportunity

The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting is a special opportunity for us to meet our shareholders. Regardless of the number of shares they hold, all shareholders are invited to attend this event, to talk with Solvay’s Management, learn about the Group’s results and objectives, and take part in the decision-making process.

2022 AGM's meeting

Solvay held its Ordinary General Shareholders' Meeting on May 10, 2022, in Brussels. Shareholders voted in favor of all the resolutions proposed and more specifically:

  • The payment of a gross dividend of €3.85 per share for the year 2021. After the deduction of the interim dividend of €1.50 gross per share, paid in January 2022, the balance amounts to €2.35 gross per share (after deduction of 30% of withholding tax) will be paid on May 19, 2022.
  • The appointment of two new independent Board members, Ms. Laurence Debroux and Mr. Pierre Gurdjian for a four-year term.
  • A new remuneration policy, which focuses on meritocracy and performance and maximizing returns in a responsible and sustainable way, aligns more with financial and non-financial delivery and includes Total Shareholder Returns.

2019 Shareholders' meeting

Solvay held its General Shareholders’ Meeting on May 14, 2019 in Brussels. 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.
