Airbus SE (stock exchange symbol: AIR) has published the agenda for its Annual General Meeting (AGM) taking place on 19 April 2023 in Amsterdam, with resolutions including the renewal of Board mandates for non-executive directors.
The Board mandates of Ralph D. Crosby Jr., Mark Dunkerley and Stephan Gemkow are each due for renewal for a period of three years. A three-year term is also proposed for Antony Wood who replaced Lord Paul Drayson on the Board last December, bringing with him extensive experience of the aerospace industry and defence sector. Lord Drayson resigned from the Board on the day of the 2022 AGM.
Airbus Board mandates are renewed every year, in blocks of four for three years, in order to ensure a smooth transition and that the appropriate skills are retained among the directors. This also avoids large block replacements of directors at any single AGM.
Also on the voting agenda is the proposed payment of a 2022 gross dividend of € 1.80 per share, as communicated in the Full-Year results disclosure on 16 February. This compares to the 2021 dividend payment of € 1.50 per share.
Documents for the AGM, including the Information Notice with a full agenda, are available online at: https://www.airbus.com/en/investors/annual-general-meetings.
The meeting starts at 1.30pm CEST on 19 April 2023.
