On 17 December 2015, Ignacio Sánchez Galán kicked off the New York Stock Exchange's trading day by ringing the traditional bell on the occasion of the NYSE début of Avangrid, Iberdrola's American subsidiary, under the AGR ticker (stock symbol).

In Brazil, the Iberdrola group completed one of the most important corporate operations in its recent history in August 2017 with the incorporation of all Elektro Holding's businesses into Neoenergia, thus creating the largest electricity company in the country and the biggest in Latin America by number of customers.

Following the success of the offer, the structure of Neoenergia's share capital was changed so that Iberdrola controlled 50% + 1 share.
