Method for holding shares

LVMH shares can be held in three forms: shares registered with the company (registered and placed in an account managed by LVMH) , shares registered through a bank (registered at LVMH and placed in an account managed by a financial intermediary) and bearer shares (registered and placed in an account managed by a financial intermediary).

Pure registered form

Your shares are registered in your name and held in the books of LVMH. However, the administrative management of your shares has been delegated to CACEIS Corporate Trust, acting as custody account keeper.

CACEIS Corporate Trust is your sole point of contact for all buy and sell orders and may be reached by any of the means listed below.

You do not pay any custodial or management fees. Brokerage fees are charged, amounting to 0.30% before VAT of the transaction value (0.20% before VAT in the case of an order submitted via OLIS-Actionnaire) with a minimum charge of 10 euros (no additional bank fees).

You receive notices of meeting for Shareholders’ Meetings automatically, without having to complete any prior formalities.

If you have not received your admission card by the end of the second business day before the Shareholders’ Meeting, please phone the CACEIS Corporate Trust Shareholders’ Meeting Department on +33 (0)1 57 78 32 32 (open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Paris time).

A double-voting right is granted to any share held in registered form for more than three years.

Administered registered form

Your shares are registered in the books of LVMH, but are kept in custody by a financial intermediary of your choice. This financial intermediary is your sole point of contact and manages your securities account.

You submit your buy and sell orders directly to your financial intermediary, who is responsible for executing orders, managing your account, managing the receipt of dividends and sending transaction notices confirming that orders have been executed.

Custodial and management fees are charged by your financial intermediary.

Bearer shares

Your shares are recorded in a securities account held and managed by the authorized financial intermediary of your choice.

You submit your buy and sell orders directly to your financial intermediary, who is responsible for executing orders, managing your account, managing the receipt of dividends and sending transaction notices confirming that orders have been executed.

Custodial and management fees are charged by your financial intermediary.

You are notified that a Shareholders’ Meeting will be held by a notice published in the French journal of official legal announcements, BALO, at least 35 days before the date of the Shareholders’ Meeting. You may then ask your financial intermediary to send you the official notice of meeting. Upcoming financial dates are also listed on LVMH’s website (www.lvmh.com) on the Events/Financial Calendar page. You can also subscribe to receive Financial Calendar event reminders on the website, which will be sent out the day before the event.

In order to attend the Shareholders’ Meeting, you must request your financial intermediary to obtain an admission card in your name. The financial intermediary will then submit your admission card request to CACEIS Corporate Trust (systematically accompanied by a share ownership certificate confirmed at least two business days before the Meeting). The admission card will be issued by CACEIS Corporate Trust, who will send it to you by post.

If you have not received your admission card by the second business day before the Shareholders’ Meeting, you may arrive at the meeting venue with a newly issued share ownership certificate from your financial intermediary, dated no earlier than the second business day before the Meeting, and request entry to the Meeting at the special counter set up for this purpose.

The presentation by a shareholder of a Shareholders’ Club card, securities account statement, portfolio estimate, or securities account valuation is not sufficient to request entry to the Shareholders’ Meeting.

Upon arriving at the venue on the day of the Meeting, all shareholders must be able to prove their identity and their status as shareholders in order to be admitted.

How can I convert my shares to pure registered form?

All you need to do is to download the following document, complete, sign and send it to your financial intermediary. Your financial intermediary will then get in touch with CACEIS Corporate Trust directly in order to transfer your shares and provide your personal contact information.
