1. Which is the purpose of this system? 

Through this system, Iberdrola intends to:

  • Offer its shareholders the ability to decide whether they prefer to receive all or a portion of their remuneration under the system in cash (through the payment of the Supplementary Dividend or the transfer of the corresponding free allocation rights in the market) or in new paid-up shares of the Company; and
  • Allow those shareholders who so desire to benefit from the favourable tax treatment applicable to paid-up shares, without in any way limiting their ability to receive the amount of the remuneration to which they are entitled in cash.
