The Board of Directors of PRISA has convened its Ordinary General Shareholders' Meeting for June 3, 2019 at 1.00 p.m. at EL PAÍS’ headquarters. Though it is foreseeable that the meeting will in fact be held on said date, should the quorum not be reached, the meeting will take place on June 4 at the same time. The agenda for the meeting together with the all relevant and related reports and proposals is available on this website, at Shareholders and Investors section.
Among the proposals submitted to the meeting of shareholders, is one whereby the Board of the Group has agreed to put forward the appointment of Ms Béatrice de Clermont as a new independent director. De Clermont is a professional with wide-ranging experience in digitally based businesses as well as in the sectors in which PRISA is active.
The Board is also proposing the renewal of the directors Mr Dominique D'Hinnin, as an independent, and of Mr Roberto Alcántara, as a proprietary director.
Likewise, the Board, on the advice of the Appointments, Remuneration and Corporate Governance Committee, and after taking into account the number of significant shareholders present in the capital of the Company and on the Board, has decided to appoint a Deputy Chairman from among the proprietary directors, with Mr Joseph Oughourlian being named to fill this position.
