The State Company of Industrial Participations (SEPI), SAPA Placencia and Amber Capital have taken control of Indra’s board after appointing Jokin Aperribay as proprietary director by the Basque group and promoting the dismissal of four independent directors at the shareholders’ meeting this Thursday.
A representative of Amber Capital, which has just over 4% of Indra and is the largest shareholder of Rushhas formulated during the interventions a request to introduce an item outside the agenda of the meeting with the aim of dismissing Alberto Terol, Carmen Aquerreta, Ana de Pro and Enrique de Leyva.
Also, the reelection of Isabel Torremochaalso independent, has not come out ahead, so the newly appointed Francisco Javier Garcia Sanz and Silvia Iranzo they remain as the only independent ones.
Aperribay, a member of the founding family of SAPA Placencia, has received the 53.1% of the votes to be a director, despite having a report against the Remuneration Committee. A percentage practically identical to that of shareholders who have supported the dismissals.
Together with Aperribay, they have renewed their mandate as directors Miguel Sebastian, Antonio Cuevas, Francisco Javier Sanz and Luis Abrilthis executive, all with votes above 90% of the shareholders.
The meeting has had more than 75% of the group’s shareholders present and all the procedural points have also been approved, such as the accounts, the sustainability report, the remunerations or the proposal for the application of the result. Likewise, Deloitte has been re-elected as auditor of the company.
The meeting has raised the tone when a representative of Amber, the largest shareholder of Prisa and shareholder of Indra with just over 4%, has proposed an additional vote to dismiss four independent directors.
Amber’s representative has justified his request on the grounds that the company needs greater stability and a “broader restructuring” on its board.
After this request, the directors, Alberto Terol and Enrique de Leyva have taken the floor to consider that the decision “will seriously damage” the company.
