Shareholders may enter the site of the General Meeting 2 hours before it is scheduled to begin, that is, from 09:00 am.
Shareholders must own at least 1,000 shares to be able to attend the General Meeting in person. These shares must be registered in the pertinent book-entry ledger at least five days before the date of the General Meeting, that is, at 11:59 pm on April 19, 2014.
Shareholders who own fewer than the minimum number of shares may pool their shares together with other shareholders to reach the 1,000-share threshold, with one person authorized in writing as their representative.
The document allowing shareholders to attend the General Meeting and exercise their voting rights is the attendance card issued by CaixaBank or the financial institution where their shares are deposited. This document specifies the name of the shareholder and the number of CaixaBank shares owned.
In addition, shareholders may be asked to show personal identification, known in Spain as the D.N.I (or any other generally-accepted official ID), to confirm their identity.
If the shareholder is a legal entity, its representative must submit a document evidencing representation (e.g. power of attorney).
CaixaBank has sent to its shareholders the attendance card, the delegation card and the voting card. You can find a sample of the attendance card in our coporate web site.
If you do not receive an attendance card, please contact any “la Caixa” branch to request a duplicate. You can also use the attendance card that you will find in our web site.
If several shareholders are listed on the attendance card, only one will have the right to attend the General Meeting and to vote as long as they own more than 1,000 shares). The co-shareholder attending the meeting must submit an attendance card and ID at the entrance to the General Meeting.
Shareholders may delegate another person, not necessarily another shareholder, to represent them. In order to attend the General Meeting in person, the representative must hold shares and/or represent one or several shareholders holding, jointly, one thousand (1,000) shares.
Shareholders may delegate another person using the procedure described in the delegation card sent by CaixaBank. It is necessary to sign an authorization printed on the attendance card, indicating the name of their representative and, if desired, giving instructions on how to vote during the meeting. The representative must bring the signed attendance card and his/her personal identification to the meeting. If by any chance you don´t receive the delegation card sent by CaixaBank, you can find it in our corporate web site.
To be eligible to attend or be represented at the General Meeting and exercise your voting rights or vote remotely, you must have CaixaBank shares registered in your name in the pertinent book-entry ledger at least five days in before the date of the meeting, that is, at 13:59 pm on April 19, 2014.
Each share confers one voting right.
