Well, let me say first that to take part in the Meeting and so take part in the voting of the resolution projects. The shareholder must have on his account at least one France Telecom share, three Stock Exchange working days before the GM. In the present case, that means at the latest on May 30 th , at midnight. You have three ways to vote: the first one is obviously on D-Day, during the General Meeting. The second one: until 3 pm, the day before the GM, you can vote by proxy, when giving your votes to the President, a spouse, or anyone else. And third and last one: until the day before at 3pm the General Meeting, you can vote by correspondence. To vote by correspondence, what is it? It is either a postal vote or a vote online, which is called an « e-vote ».

The e-vote is done via GISproxy, the website managed by BNP Paribas. It is our centralising bank. I'd say that this benefits the shareholders and, of course, to the company. For shareholders, who cannot physically attend the General Meeting, the e-vote is a modern, fast and secured way to vote, to give their opinion on the resolutions presented during the General Meeting. As for the company, it is also a way, in a responsible approach, to limit the use of paper. Last year, about 15% of the shareholders who voted, did it by Internet.
