  • RiskMetrics gives positive recommendation on all resolutions proposed by Board
  • Deadline for proxy votes: Monday 4 May 2009 at 14:00 (UK time)

The combined Annual General Meeting of Groupe Eurotunnel SA will take place in Coquelles (France) on Wednesday 6 May 2009 at 10:15.

This will be a historic moment for the group for two reasons: it is the fifteenth anniversary, to the day, of the inauguration of the Channel Tunnel and shareholders will be able to vote for the first dividend in the company’s history.

RiskMetrics (formerly ISS Governance Services), the foremost independent consultant for shareholder information and representation, has taken a position in favour of all the resolutions put forward by the Groupe Eurotunnel SA Board.


Shareholders who cannot attend the AGM are reminded that they can vote either by correspondence or by giving their proxy to inter alia the Chairman or any other shareholder. Whichever option is selected, the voting forms must be returned as soon as possible. Bearer shareholders have to transmit the forms to their financial intermediary in order that they can transmit them together with the certificate of participation to the centralizing agency no later than 14:00 (UK time) on Monday 4 May.
