COFACE SA: Evolution of the Board of Directors proposed at the 2022 General Meeting on 17 May 2022

Paris, 26 April 2022 – 17.45

It will be proposed to the Combined General Meeting of May 17, 2022, to appoint Laetitia Leonard - Reuter and Laurent Musy as directors for a term of four years, in accordance with the provisions of Article 12 of the bylaws.

These appointments, which follow the expiry of the terms of office of Olivier Zarrouati and Eric Hémar respectively, will be effective at the end of this meeting for a term of four years. These terms of office will expire at the end of the Annual General Meeting called in 2026 to approve the financial statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2025.

With regard to the independence criteria of the AFEP-MEDEF Code, Laetitia Leonard - Reuter and Laurent Musy are considered as independent directors (replacing Olivier Zarrouati and Eric Hémar, both independent directors).

The Combined General Meeting will also be requested to renew the term of office of Sharon MacBeath (independent director) and to ratify the co-option of David Gansberg as a non-independent director.

As a result, at the end of the General Meeting and subject to a favorable vote, Coface's Board of Directors will consist of 10 members, 5 women and 5 men, the majority (6) of whom are independent directors.
