Under Swiss law and LafargeHolcim Ltd’s Articles of Association, an acquirer of LafargeHolcim shares needs to be registered in one of the two LafargeHolcim Ltd share registers to be considered as a shareholder with voting rights. Shares whose holders are not registered are deemed “dispo” shares. They are entitled to the payment of dividends and other distributions, but not to attend and vote at General Meetings.
LafargeHolcim maintains two share registers:
- One share register is maintained in Switzerland by Nimbus AG, which currently maintains the Holcim share register (the “Swiss Share Register”).
- The second share register is maintained in France by BNP Paribas Securities Services (the “French Share Register”).
Both share registers contain the name, nationality and address of the shareholders and the number of shares held
by each of them.
