To date, the company’s General Management considers that the continuity of operations is not at risk.
In addition, given the context and uncertainties, it will be proposed to the General Meeting of Shareholders not to distribute dividends for the 2019 financial year.
On this occasion, the company reminds all its shareholders that this situation does not pose any risk to the company’s ability to continue as a going concern over the next twelve months.
