The Amber Capital fund is the main shareholder of Grupo Prisa with 29.8% of the capital.

Likewise, the independent director Javier de Jaime Guijarro has informed the company of his resignation as a member of the board and, consequently, as a member of the delegated committee, due to the difficulties in combining this position with his current professional situation and because of his desire to improve gender diversity on the board of directors, which would facilitate leaving a vacant vacancy on the Board.
