How to become a shareholder?

Shareholding methods

Antalis shares can be held under two methods:

Bearer format

The Bearer form enables shareholders to consolidate all of their portfolio securities into one single account and simplify their stock exchange arbitrage transactions.

Their shares are deposited with a financial intermediary who alone knows the shareowners’ identities.  Consequently, the shareholders do not personally receive any convening notices prior to the General Shareholders Meetings of the company.

Registered format

Registered shareholding enables shareholders to benefit from a personalised, direct service as Antalis knows the identities of all its registered shareholders, and to be formally convened to each General Shareholders’ Meeting.

  • If you opt for the pure registered format, you must contact BNP Paribas Securities Services which will manage your shares. No custody fees will be charged for the custody of your shares in a securities account.
  • If you opt for the administered registered format, you may contact the financial intermediary of your choice. Your shares will be registered in an account held by BNP Paribas Securities Services but managed by your intermediary.

Administered registered or bearer format: you must contact the financial intermediary of your choice.  Your shares will be deposited in your securities account open with this intermediary (e.g. bank, brokers, etc.).

Benefits of registered shareholding

Opting for registered share ownership means that you will automatically receive the convening notices for all General Shareholders Meetings.

Pure registered shareholders also benefit from:

  • custody and management fees free of charge
  • double voting rights for each share registered to the same shareholder for at least two years

If you wish to convert your Antalis International shares into pure registered form, you just have to send a written request to your financial intermediary who will carry out the necessary formalities with BNP Paribas Securities Services.

Your financial intermediary may charge you financial fees for this transaction.
