This notice includes information on how to vote at the AGM, as well as the vote bulletin. All these documents are also available on the Company’s website (www.biophytis.com) Because the above-mentioned French Decree no 2021-255 of March 9 2021 had not yet been published at the time of publication of the draft resolutions in the BALO n° 30, dated March 10, 2021, such publication does not expressly mention that the meeting will be held behind closed doors.
