PARIS — Shareholders arriving at the annual general meeting of French retail-to-luxury group PPR on Friday were greeted by riot police, who had been dispatched to the former Paris Bourse to watch over trade union members gathered there to protest against job cuts at books and electronics retailer Fnac.
“I apologize for the inconvenience,” PPR chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault told those gathered inside the venue. No incidents were reported, and all but a handful of demonstrators had left by the time the meeting ended several hours later.
