COIL : REPORT ON THE ORDINARY GENERAL MEETING FROM JUNE 6, 2018

REPORT ON THE ORDINARY GENERAL MEETING FROM JUNE 6, 2018

  • Dividend of €1 per share, with payment from September 14, 2018
  • Board of Directors further strengthened, with a new member appointed

Brussels, Thursday June 7, 2018 (8am) - COIL held its Ordinary General Meeting yesterday. With a quorum of 69.1%, the Company's shareholders approved all the resolutions, including those concerning the full-year accounts for 2017 and the payment of an ordinary dividend. This General Meeting also enabled the Company to further strengthen its governance with a view to supporting its long-term development.

The General Meeting approved a dividend of €1 per share, which will be paid out from September 14, 2018. This dividend confirms COIL's excellent financial health at a time when the Company is returning to more standard levels of investment (capex) in 2018, with around €1.5m per year. This is also in line with its policy for regular dividends.

Alongside this, the General Meeting approved Mr Tom Frost's appointment as an independent member of the Board of Directors for six years. He brings a high level of expertise in financing strategies for small and medium-sized businesses and his appointment will make it possible to further strengthen the Board of Directors' capabilities, supporting the deployment of COIL's international strategy and ensuring its effective sustainable development.
Following this appointment, COIL's Board of Directors is now made up of four very experienced members, two of whom are independent.

COIL is the world's largest architectural and industrial anodiser.

 

Anodising is an electrochemical process - electrolysis - that develops a natural and protective exterior layer on aluminium that can be coloured, providing exceptional corrosion protection and/or increased functionality for the metal.

 

Anodising preserves all the natural and ecological properties of aluminium - it retains its high strength-to-weight ratio, non-magnetic properties and exceptional corrosion resistance without any impact on the total and repeated recyclability of the metal.

 

Anodised aluminium is used across a wide range of architectural, designer, industrial and automotive applications.
