General Shareholders’ Meeting
Barcelona, January 4, 2006 – At a meeting held on December 27, 2005, the Board of Directors of Renta Corporación Real Estate, S.A. (the Company) agreed to forward a proposal to the next General Shareholders’ Meeting, which is scheduled to be held on February 9, 2006, that all shares representing the Company’s share capital be listed on the Madrid and Barcelona stock exchanges.
The move would follow an Initial Public Offering (“the Offer”) of shares to any company shareholders who wish to accept and a simultaneous Public Offer for Subscription of new shares within the scope of a capital increase.
The company has entrusted Morgan Stanley with the overall planning and coordination of the Offer.
At the same meeting, the company’s Board of Directors also agreed to propose to the General Shareholders’ Meeting the payment of an interim dividend of 0.46 euros per share.
Both the Offer and stock market flotation are subject to the approval of the General Shareholders’ Meeting and to the verification and registration of the obligatory prospectus by the Spanish Securities and Investment Board.
