Acerinox has made public this afternoon the call for the shareholders’ meeting to be held on October 22nd, which includes the proposal of the board of directors to pay a dividend of 0.40 euros per share to each of the securities outstanding, payable on December 2, 2020. In addition, a payment of 0.10 euros per share will be made as an issue premium on December 3.
Therefore, the remuneration that was included in the application of results for the month of February is maintained.
Once again, Acerinox proposes to match the same amount as last year, maintaining its commitment to shareholders. The total amount earmarked for shareholder remuneration would amount, if approved by the General Meeting, to 135 million euros.
On the other hand, the board of directors proposes to the meeting -which should have been held in April and which was postponed- the appointments as independent directors of Leticia Iglesias Herraiz and Francisco Javier García Sáez.
Due to the current circumstances derived from the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting will be held electronically in order to safeguard the safety and health of shareholders, employees and other interest groups, according to the group chaired by Rafael Miranda.
He stressed that once the objective of obtaining greater visibility of the situation created by Covid-19 was assured, “Acerinox maintains its confidence in the progress of the business and proposes the remuneration that was included in the application of results for the month of February , which was published among the agreements of the meeting to be held last April and which was postponed for reasons of prudence ”.
