The different types of shareholdings forms

Securities can be held in two different forms in France.

  • Bearer form: bearer security accounts are held by a financial intermediary (bank, online broker or stock exchange company, etc.) chosen by the shareholder, which is the only one to know the shareholder’s identity while the issuing company (Capgemini SE) does not know the shareholder’s identity.
  • Registered form: The shareholder’s identity is recorded in the issuing company’s (Capgemini SE) books, which makes communication between the issuer and its shareholders easier. There are two types of registered shares:
    • Directly registered shares: the shares are recorded and kept on behalf of the shareholder in the issuing company’s books. In the case of Capgemini, the company’s book is managed by CACEIS Corporate Trust.
    • Administered registered shares: the shares are recorded in the issuing company’s accounts, but kept in custody by the financial intermediary of the shareholder’s choice.
