During Vallourec’s 21 March 2019 session, the Supervisory Board decided to submit to the vote of the Shareholders' Meeting on 23 May 2019 the renewal of the terms of Ms. Maria Pilar Albiac-Murillo, Mr. Philippe Altuzarra and Ms. Pascale Chargrasse, which are expiring, for a new four year period.

The Supervisory Board also decided to co-opt Ms. Corinne de Bilbao as a Supervisory Board member to replace Mr. José Carlos Grubisich, who resigned. The ratification of Ms. Corinne de Bilbao's appointment will be proposed to the Shareholders' Meeting on 23 May 2019.

Ms. de Bilbao has been President and CEO of GE France since March 2016. In this strategic position, her mission is to support the development of GE's business in France and the transformation of the company. Prior to taking over the management of GE France, she held the position of Vice President of Sales, Subsea Division of GE Oil & Gas, in charge of the global development of the division's activities, particularly in Africa and Latin America.

Corinne de Bilbao has an industrial experience of nearly 30 years, including more than 20 years devoted to the energy sector, the petroleum industry, generation and electrical distribution. She also spent two years at Areva T&D as Vice President of Sales, Product Division. With this background, she acquired a global vision of the industry and its challenges in a wide variety of markets.

The Supervisory Board considered that Corinne de Bilbao must be qualified as an independent member.

The Chairman of the Supervisory Board and all Board members would like to warmly thank Mr. José Carlos Grubisich for his active involvement and contribution to the work of the Supervisory Board and the Strategic Committee.
