Shareholding structure

On December 31, 2016, Sanofi’s share capital was split into 1,292,022,324 shares with a par value of 2 euros.

Except for shares held by the Company and registered shareholders, we have to conduct special surveys to know our shareholding structure.

By shareholder type as of December 31, 2016

Voting rights (in %)

Shareholding structure per voting rights (in %)

Number of shares outstanding: 1,292,022,324
Number of real voting rights: 1,416,031,952


The difference between the percentage of shares and the percentage of voting rights is due to the existence of double voting rights and the fact that Sanofi and certain subsidiaries hold shares as treasury shares that don’t have voting rights.
