Decisions of the General Meeting of Shareholders

The General Meeting of Shareholders approved the following resolutions proposed by the Board of Directors:

  • Appointment of Nicolás Redondo Terreros as an independent director and José María Sagardoy Llopis as a proprietary director representing Banco Popular, in its capacity as a shareholder of Inmobiliaria Colonial, and Manuel Fernando Menéndez López as a proprietary director representing La Caixa, in its capacity as a shareholder of Inmobiliaria Colonial.
  • Payment of a supplementary dividend of 1.065 euro per share, the same as the interim dividend paid in January. The total dividend paid out of 2007 income is 2.13 euro per share  (4% more than last year).

  • Delegate to the Board of Directors the power to issue fixed-income securities, warrants and similar securities that may directly or indirectly give entitlement to exchange them for company shares, without necessarily increasing capital.
