Benefits of being a registered shareholder
Registered Sodexo shareholders are entitled to:
- double voting rights for registered shares held for at least four years;
- a dividend premium of 10% for registered shares held for at least four years (the number of shares eligible for this dividend premium may not exceed 0.5% of the share capital for any
- single shareholder);
- automatic invitation to Shareholders’ Meetings and personalized information on all financial transactions (capital increases, bond issues, etc.);
- reduced administration costs (for directly-registered shares only).
Sodexo share codes
Sodexo bearer shares are traded under the code FR0000121220.
The code for registered shares already eligible for the dividend premium is FR0011532431. Different share codes have been introduced for registered shares in order to reflect the period in
which the shares were acquired and to determine eligibility for the dividend premium.
The use of different codes does not affect the tradability of the shares. When selling shares, it is advisable to sell the most recently acquired first in order to maintain the dividend premium
rights on the highest number of remaining shares.
Contacts for registered shareholders
Directly-registered shareholders’ accounts are managed by Société Générale, which also acts as transfer agent for all Sodexo shares
