Today we open our channels of participation in the General Shareholders' Meeting
- The company has proposed to pay a dividend of EUR 0.005 gross per share if a quorum of at least 70% of the share capital is reached.
- Iberdrola will hold an even more participative, accessible, closer, sustainable and innovative AGM
Iberdrola wants to strengthen communication with its hundreds of thousands of shareholders at the General Meeting on 28 April and, to this end, has today opened its channels to participate in the meeting.
With the aim of holding an even more participatory, accessible, close, sustainable and innovative AGM, the company is deploying a wide range of participation channels: Shareholders who receive a company card will be able to open a personalised QR code to enter http://votojunta.iberdrola.com/ and vote quickly and easily. If they use the cards sent by the depositary entities, they can access the same link with their electronic signature or simply with their share number or their OLA Shareholder Club password. At the same time, the e-mail address Junta2023@iberdrola.es has been set up for shareholders who prefer to send their signed cards via this channel.
Another option is to exercise the right to vote by telephone, by calling the toll-free number 900 100 019, or to use the traditional postal service, by sending the signed card to PO Box 1.113, 48080 Bilbao.
Iberdrola is the first Spanish company to allow its shareholders to exercise their voting rights via instant messaging systems. To vote through this channel, holders of shares will simply have to send an image of their signed proxy and remote voting card by WhatsApp (to the number +34 639 000 639) or by Telegram (to the Junta Iberdrola account).
In addition, the company is offering shareholders its on-site service points in Bilbao, Madrid, Valencia, Valladolid and Zaragoza. In all of them, it will be possible to delegate, vote and collect a gift for participating from 19 April until 27 April.
All shareholders wishing to exercise their proxy or remote voting rights must do so through one of the aforementioned channels before 24:00 on 27 April, the day before the General Meeting on first call.
Shareholders and proxy holders who wish to attend the Meeting electronically must register between 08:00 and 10:15 a.m. on 28 April (the scheduled date of the Meeting). In order to speed up their registration on the day of the Meeting, they may register in advance on the Participation Portal of the website during the five days prior to the Meeting, i.e., from 23 April. Those who prefer to attend in person must reserve a seat through the Shareholders' Office or the website before 10:15 a.m. on the day of the AGM.
Iberdrola fosters fluid and permanent communication with shareholders
The Shareholders' Office is the main information channel whose priority objective is to be an open, permanent, and transparent area with all of Iberdrola's shareholders, continuously developing initiatives aimed at strengthening such relationship and allowing them to be constantly informed and to be able to make proposals regarding the management of the company.
In this way, the Shareholders' Office serves to respond, at all times, to shareholders' queries, questions or suggestions, through a free telephone helpline (900 100 019) and an e-mail address (email@example.com), being in contact with the holders of shares voluntarily registered in its database.
In addition, the company has a Virtual Shareholder Assistant (VSA), a chatbot designed to respond immediately to queries about the AGM and to provide all the information and links of interest to facilitate your participation in the event.
The OLS Shareholders' Club is located on the website, an interactive system that represents a further step in the direct, fluid, and permanent channel of dialogue that Iberdrola maintains with its shareholders. By registering with this club, shareholders may participate in special leisure activities, events, raffles, etc. They may also submit any questions of interest publicly or confidentially, access the most frequently asked questions and answers on various topics, and, starting with the call to the General Shareholders' Meeting, exercise their rights to information, proxy representation, and remote voting, as well as view the live broadcast of the meeting.
Iberdrola was the first Ibex 35 company to have a specific mobile application for investors and shareholders: Iberdrola Investor Relations. Investors can consult all relevant information on the economic and financial performance of the company from their mobile devices. They can also use this application to follow the company's results presentations, as well as the holding of the General Shareholders' Meeting. It also offers the evolution of the share price, as well as access to share price graphs.
Commitment to participation
To encourage participation, the company has proposed for the second consecutive year an attendance dividend of €0.005 gross per share (one euro gross per 200 shares). If a quorum of at least 70% of the share capital is reached, the company will pay this amount to all shareholders entitled to participate in the meeting. Iberdrola is the only Ibex 35 company that rewards its shareholders in this way at the company's most important event.
The involvement dividend is part of a concept of a more participatory, accessible, closer, sustainable and innovative AGM.
