Shareholder action was not required = auncune intervention de la part des actionnaires fut requise.

From the extract provided, I don't think it useful to enter into any thought about different types of shares (ie - those held by shareholders as distinct from those held by the company) particularly as "action" would have been written in the plural and it appears twice in the same sentence in the singular. No, just that the motion coçuld go through on the Board's decision alone.
