We promote participation in the General Shareholders’ Meeting with the deployment of the Shareholder Service Points
- The company sets up the Shareholder Service Points for the General Meeting to be held on 28 April next.
- Shareholders will receive a dividend of EUR 0.005 gross per share if a quorum of at least 70 % of the share capital is reached.
Iberdrola is promoting participation in the General Shareholders' Meeting on 28 April with the opening today, and until 27 April, of its Shareholder Service Points in Bilbao, Madrid, Valencia, Valladolid, and Zaragoza. At all of them, it will be possible to delegate, vote, and collect a commemorative gift for participating, offering personal attention to shareholders to facilitate their participation and mitigate the digital divide.
In addition, the company chaired by Ignacio S. Galán has proposed a gross dividend of €0.005 per share (one gross euro for every 200 shares) to encourage participation in the General Shareholders' Meeting. All shareholders entitled to participate in the meeting will receive this incentive if the quorum reaches at least 70% of the share capital and the General Shareholders' Meeting agrees to pay it. Iberdrola implemented this remuneration formula last year and continues to be the only Ibex 35 company that rewards its shareholders in this way at the company's most important event.
Wide range of possibilities for participation
Iberdrola will hold an even more participatory, accessible, close, sustainable, and innovative General Meeting, making available to its shareholders multiple channels for remote participation and the possibility of attending telematically.
Shareholders who receive the proxy and remote voting card from the company can open a personalised QR code to enter votojunta.iberdrola.com and participate in a quick and easy way.
If they use the cards sent by the depositories, they can access the same link with their electronic signature or with their share number or their OLS Shareholders’ 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.
Iberdrola is the first Spanish company to allow its shareholders to exercise their voting or proxy rights via instant messaging systems. To vote or delegate through this channel, shareholders 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 to these multiple formulas for participation, there are also points of attention in Bilbao, Madrid, Valencia, Valladolid and Zaragoza, which will be open from today until 27 April. There, shareholders can delegate, vote and collect a gift consisting of a cooler-backpack bag made from the plastic of 7 used PET bottles, after having participated, simply by taking their ID card and without the need to hand in the proxy and remote voting cards.
In this way, the company combines personal attention with the use of state-of-the-art technology to simplify participation and ensure the proper scrutiny of the Board.
Another option is to delegate or vote by telephone by calling the toll-free number 900 100 019, or by using the traditional postal service, sending the signed card to PO Box 1.113, 48080 Bilbao.
All shareholders wishing to exercise their proxy or remote voting rights must do so through one of the aforementioned channels before midnight on 27 April, the day before the General Meeting on first call.
Shareholders and proxy holders who wish to attend telematically must register between 08:00 and 10:15 a.m. on 28 April (the date of the Meeting, which is scheduled to start at 11:00 a.m. on that day). In order to speed up their registration on the day of the Meeting, they will be able to register in advance on the Participation Portal on 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 General Meeting.
Iberdrola fosters fluid and permanent communication with shareholders
The Shareholders’ Office is the main channel of information between the Company and its shareholders, whose priority objective is to be an open, permanent, and transparent area with all holders of Iberdrola shares, continuously developing initiatives intended to strengthen 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 frequently asked questions and answers on various topics, and, beginning 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.
