Bankia recommends remote monitoring of the general meeting of shareholders
Bankia recommends its shareholders to use electronic media to follow the general meeting of shareholders to be held on March 27 in Valencia, as well as to exercise their voting and information rights.
In a relevant information sent to the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV), the entity has indicated that it makes this recommendation based on prudence criteria "given the unpredictable evolution of Covid-19 coronavirus disease," according to a Bankia statement.
Bankia shareholders may follow the retransmission of the general meeting through the entity's website (www.bankia.com), which contains all the details on the channels and media made available to them.
However, in the event that shareholders want to attend in person at the Palacio de Congresos de Valencia, Bankia will adopt all those sanitary prevention measures recommended by the competent authorities.
Bankia, "by criteria of prudence, active surveillance and attention to people and following the recommendations of the health authorities has implemented a series of measures with the objective of minimizing the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus among its professionals and clients".
The entity has ensured that it has contingency plans to "face situations of unavailability of professionals, both in the office network and in the central services, with the aim of ensuring the continuity of the entity's activities".
The bank has established a series of recommendations to its central, corporate or territorial service professionals, including teleworking for those groups that can perform their function from their homes.
The Bankia Covid-19 Monitoring Committee also established last week travel limitations that are not considered essential or essential, using alternative means such as video calls and audios.
