Holding fully registered or administered registered shares



Sanofi shares can be held as bearer shares, administered registered shares or fully registered shares. Whereas bearer shareholders are only identified by their financial intermediary (such as your bank), we know the identity of our registered shareholders, which means we can establish a personal dialogue with you.

Benefits of holding fully registered or administered registered shares

  • Notices of general meetings are automatically sent to you by postal mail or e-mail, if you have chosen the e-convocation;
  • All registered shares held for at least 2 years enjoy double voting rights at general meetings.

Fully registered shares

We have appointed BNP Paribas Securities Services as agent to administer our fully registered shares. This arrangement offers a number of additional benefits:

  • You do not pay custody fees or routine administration fees.
  • You pay a preferential brokerage fee and bank commissions (see conditions below)
