Any Director shall hold office until its successor is elected. The Directors are re-eligible and they may be removed at any time, with or without cause, by a resolution of the Sole Shareholder (or, in case of plurality of Shareholders, by a resolution of the General Meeting). In the event of one or more vacancies in the office of Director because of death, retirement or otherwise, the remaining Directors may elect, by a majority vote, a Director to fill such vacancy until the next General Meeting. In this case the Shareholder(s) shall ratify the election at their next General Meeting.”

The share capital of the Company is currently represented by 76,641,991 shares. Every share, whatever its unit value, gives the right to one vote. Fractional shares shall have no voting right.
Please note that in order to prevent large gatherings due to the current COVID crisis and in accordance with the Luxembourg law of 23 September 2020 extending the measures concerning the facilitation of holding remotely of meetings of companies and any other legal persons (as amended and/or extended), shareholders will not be able to attend the EGM in person.
Please further note that only shareholders of the Company that have registered for the Adjourned EGM, in accordance with article 5 of the Luxembourg law of 27 May 2011 on the exercise of certain rights of the shareholders for the general meetings of listed companies and that held shares on the fourteenth day prior to the Adjourned Meeting at midnight, may participate to and vote at the EGM.
In light of the above, the Board will, before the EGM, send to the shareholders that have validly registered for the Adjourned EGM and have not submitted proxies, an updated link to the videoconference system pursuant to which the EGM will be held.
Unless otherwise instructed, the proxy and voting forms validly received by the Board for the Adjourned EGM will be used and the respective votes cast on behalf of the relevant shareholder(s) at the EGM. As a result, shareholders that have submitted proxies and now wish to revoke such proxy, change their vote instruction or otherwise attend the EGM by way of conference call shall contact the Company as soon as possible before the EGM and, in any event, by 5 February 2021 at 18:00 CET at the latest.
For the avoidance of doubt, no action is required from shareholders that have registered for the Adjourned EGM and submitted their proxies and do not wish to change their vote.
Shareholders that have not submitted proxies (and will, as a result, be provided with the link to attend the EGM by way of videoconference) and wish to cast their vote in writing or be represented at the EGM shall also contact the Company as soon as possible before the EGM and provide a signed proxy form at the latest by 5 February 2021 at 18:00 CET.
