Frequently asked questions

1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of holding shares in registered form?

Advantages:

As shareholders' identities are known, the company can send them information or notices of meeting directly.
They can attend shareholders' meetings with no special formalities. Shareholders who hold Bouygues shares in registered form for more than two years have double voting rights.

Disadvantages:

To be sold, Bouygues shares must be in bearer form. Any sale of registered shares therefore requires that they first be converted into bearer shares and transferred to a financial intermediary.
Shareholders holding pure registered shares will receive as many statements and tax certificates as securities they own. The large number of documents thus accumulated can be inconvenient when completing tax returns.

FAQ2

2. How can I convert Bouygues shares into pure registered form? Which intermediary holds Bouygues registered share accounts?

To convert Bouygues shares into pure registered form, the shareholder must transmit a request to the financial intermediary with whom the shares are deposited. When Bouygues receives the shares, it sends the shareholder notification and an account activation form.
Bouygues holds registered share accounts directly and is a member of Euroclear France as an issuer under No. 791.

3. Can Bouygues shares held in a PEA (French equity savings plan) be converted to pure registered form?

Managing pure registered share accounts within a PEA is complex and restrictive for both Bouygues, as depositary of the shares, and the financial intermediaries that hold the PEA securities and cash accounts. It is therefore Bouygues' policy not to open such accounts.
Shareholders wishing to register their Bouygues shares already held in a PEA must choose the administered registered form.

4. Can I buy Bouygues shares or sell those already held in pure registered form by applying directly to Bouygues?

Bouygues has made it a general rule not to have any involvement in trades on behalf of its shareholders. Shareholders wishing to buy or sell Bouygues shares should therefore apply to the financial intermediary of their choice.

Before selling all or some of their Bouygues shares held in pure registered form, shareholders should send Bouygues a letter asking for them to be converted into bearer form with the financial intermediary of their choice, together with their bank account details (no charge is made for converting shares from registered into bearer form). Shareholders then transmit orders directly to their financial intermediary.
