Telefonica is starting the process of preparing a stock market listing for a stake in its currently fully-owned Argentine subsidiary. In the upcoming AGM on April 16, it’s expected that authorisation will be sought from shareholders to go ahead with the share placement.
MADRID | February 26, 2015 | By Francisco López | Small savers are penalised most heavily by zero-interest rate policies and what they appreciate most at the moment is good profitability through dividend payment.
