During its session of March 12, 2020, in accordance with Article L. 225-39 of the French Commercial Code, the Supervisory Board implemented an evaluation procedure for agreements on current operations concluded under arm’s length conditions (known as “ordinary agreements”) intended to ensure that they meet all conditions. The Supervisory Board evaluates ordinary agreements when they are signed, changed or renewed. It relies on the work of the Accounts and Risk Monitoring Committee to which it entrusts the task of reviewing the agreements to ensure that they still meet the criteria to be classified as ordinary. As part of this review, the Accounts and Risk Monitoring Commit tee considers the principles
provided in the internal charter of the Company governing standard and regulated agreements. For the first year the evaluation procedure was applied, the Company wanted to submit the existing agreements it had signed to the Accounts and Risk Monitoring Committee and the Supervisory Board, even if they had not been modified or renewed. The Supervisory Board meeting of March 12, 2020, thus examined the following existing agreements and was of the opinion that they still met all the criteria: • tax consolidation agreement signed on June 9, 2006, and its amendments to update the Group’s tax consolidation scope;
