The ex-dividend date was May 16 and the dividend was paid on May 18, 2017.
The Annual General Meeting also largely approved all the resolutions submitted, notably:
Thierry de La Tour d’Artaise thanked Laure Thomas, Bruno Bich, Tristan Boiteux, Pascal Girardot and Christian Peugeot for their commitment to and involvement in the Board of Directors for several years, having stepped down to enable the recomposition of the Board.
It was with great sadness that Groupe SEB announced the death on April 1, 2017 of Emmanuel Lescure at the age of 87. Emmanuel Lescure devoted his entire professional life to Groupe SEB, serving as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer from 1976 to 1990 and subsequently as Honorary Chairman. Under his leadership, Groupe SEB substantially stepped up its development through the expansion and internationalization of its business activity. Thierry de La Tour d’Artaise sought to pay homage not simply to a great business leader and visionary, but also to an exceptional person driven by strong convictions and values.
