Urbas To Carry Out €2.2M Capital Increase & Appoint 3 New Directors

29 May 2018 – Eje Prime

Urbas is ploughing ahead. The real estate group’s Board of Directors is going to propose a €2.19 million capital increase to its General Shareholders’ Meeting through the offsetting of loans, as well as the appointment of three new independent directors, according to a statement filed by the company with Spain’s National Securities and Exchange Commission (CNMV).

The maximum amount of the capital increase will be €2,198,705.17, and the Board will be able to execute it for a maximum period of twelve months, following its approval, on one or more dates. Given that it is a capital increase involving special compensation and not a monetary contribution, preferential subscription rights will not apply.

The company’s shareholders will also vote for the re-election of the companies Robisco Investment and Quamtium Venture as members of the Board of Directors on a proprietary basis; they currently serve as the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the company, respectively.

In addition, Urbas will propose the appointment of three new independent directors to fill three existing vacancies. The new board members in question are Adolfo José Guerrero Hidalgo, Pablo Cobo del Moral and Ignacio Sáenz de Santamaría Vierna.

The General Shareholders’ Meeting is scheduled to be held on 29 June. The company’s annual accounts will also be submitted for approval on that date, along with the Directors’ Report, the Report on the Remuneration Policy of the Board of Directors and the re-election of  Baker Tilly Fmac as the auditors of the accounts for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020.
