Acciona’s board of directors will propose at the next shareholders’ meeting, which will take place on June 30, the appointment of María Dolores Dancausa, current CEO of Bankinter, as a member of the board, as well as the re-election of José Manuel Entrecanales as President of the company.
The Chairman of Acciona earned 35.3 million euros in 2020 after receiving the variable remuneration of six years
With the future incorporation of Dancausa to the board, Acciona increases the presence of women on its board of directors to 33%, that is, to four out of a total of 12, accompanied by Ana Saiz de Vicuña, Sonia Dulá and Christiana Figueres.
Dancausa, a Law graduate from the San Pablo CEU University College, has held the position of CEO of Bankinter since October 2010 and has developed her professional career in the financial and insurance sector, first at Banco Exterior and later at Bankinter. In 1994, when Línea Directa Aseguradora was created, she was appointed general secretary and secretary of the council until 2008.
In addition to the reelection of Entrecanales for the next four years, the board will also propose the maintenance as directors of the vice president, Juan Ignacio Entrecanales Franco, and Daniel Entrecanales Domecq, Javier Entrecanales Franco, Javier Sendagorta Gómez del Campillo, José María Pacheco Guardiola and Ana Saiz by Vicuña Bemberg.
On the other hand, the company will propose a distribution to shareholders of a gross dividend of 3.9 euros per share, payment that would be made on July 7, charged to the results of last year, when it obtained a net profit of 380 million euros, 8.1% more.
Last year, the company decided to cut the dividend applying a criterion of prudence given the uncertainty generated by the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, it delivered 1,936 euros in July, compared to the 3.85 originally planned, which translated into the distribution of 106 million euros, compared to the 211 million previously planned.
Like last year, the meeting, which will also re-elect KPMG as the auditor of its accounts, will be held telematically in order to ensure the health and well-being of shareholders, employees and administrators.
