Paris, September 27, 2023 - The Annual General Meeting of shareholders of Ubisoft was held on 27 September 2023 in Paris and was chaired by Mr. Yves Guillemot, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer.

At this meeting, the shareholders present or represented held an aggregate 78.97% of the outstanding shares.

All resolutions were approved, highlighting the broad support and confidence of the shareholders in Ubisoft’s strategy.   

In particular, the shareholders have voted for the appointments of two new independent directors, Katherine Hays and Olfa Zorgati. Ubisoft welcomes them to its Board of Directors and looks forward to benefiting from their respective expertise and experience, which will contribute to support Ubisoft's strategy and development in the coming years.

The shareholders also renewed the terms of office of Corinne Fernandez-Handelsman and Belén Essioux-Trujillo as independent directors.

With these appointments and the additional Director refreshments made during recent years, Ubisoft continues to strengthen its Board in order to benefit from high-caliber profiles who bring a diverse set of skills and expertise, particularly in video games, finance, human resources and management of large organizations. Independent members account for 55% of the Board’s composition.

The Board also expresses its gratitude for the many years of service of two out-going independent directors, Florence Naviner, out-going Chair of the Audit Committee and Didier Crespel, out-going Lead Independent Director. Claude France, who joined the Board in July 2022 to bring her digital and tech expertise and experience managing large scale organizations, has been appointed as the new Lead Independent Director as well as Chairwoman of the Audit & Risk Committee.

Yves Guillemot, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I would like to thank our shareholders for their robust support.
