Notice

The purpose of this site is to present the activity of ABÉNEX as well as the main characteristics of its products and services. We draw the attention of those consulting this site to the fact that past performance cannot be a guide to future performance and that, due to the risks inherent in ABÉNEX‘s activity, the information on the site is intended for those with knowledge of private equity and the expertise and means necessary to understand the inherent risks.

By using this site, the visitor acknowledges that they have had the opportunity to read the notice.

The information contained on the site www.abenex.com is not contractual. It cannot be considered to be an incentive to invest. It should in no way be construed as a solicitation nor an offer to subscribe, purchase or exchange ABÉNEX shares or other financial products. It has therefore not been subject to the control of the authorised authorities required in the context of public offering procedures.

The information contained on the site www.abenex.com is purely indicative. No subscription is possible through this site.

Voting policy

ABÉNEX only invests in unlisted companies. Nevertheless, and in line with Articles 319-21 et seq. of the AMF General Regulations, ABÉNEX‘s policy is to participate and vote at each shareholders’ meeting of its portfolio companies or to be represented at such meetings.

The exercise of these voting rights is carried out in accordance with the agreements in place, in particular the shareholders’ agreement which defines the important decisions which, before being put to the vote of the shareholders, if necessary, must first be authorised by the supervisory body of the place where ABÉNEX has its registered office. These decisions relate in particular to:

  • decisions entailing an amendment to the articles of association of the portfolio company or its subsidiaries;
  • approval of the accounts and allocation of profits;
  • appointment and dismissal of executives;
  • regulated agreements;
  • issues and capital reductions;
  • appointment of the statutory auditors;
  • strategic decisions of the portfolio company (recruitment/dismissal of key executives, disposal/acquisition of major assets, etc.).

The purpose of exercising voting rights is to defend the interests of the investors in the Funds managed, although, of course, this exercise must be carried out in accordance with the corporate interest of the portfolio company concerned.
