Brussels, February 13, 2018 --- Solvay's Board of Directors was informed of Engie's decision to propose Jean-Pierre Clamadieu as its Chairman following his election as Board Member at the French company's next Shareholder meeting on May 18, 2018.

"The Board of Solvay and myself warmly congratulate Jean-Pierre for this nomination, which we discussed in full transparency. We are now accelerating the process to identify Jean-Pierre's successor to pursue the successful strategy that we launched a few years ago. We appreciate Jean-Pierre's commitment to facilitate a smooth transition," said Nicolas Boël, Chairman of the Board of Solvay.
