BBVA to seek shareholders' approval to reduce capital by up to 10%

Mon 15th March, 2021 6:43pm
MADRID, March 15 (Reuters) - Spain's BBVA  BBVA.MC  on
Monday said it would seek the approval from its shareholders to
reduce the bank's share capital up to 10% to carry out a
previously announced share buy-back. 
    "Once this item of the agenda is approved by the AGM (on
April 20), the board will be able to proceed or not with the
buy-back and subsequent share reduction, on one or more
occasions," BBVA said in a statement. 
    In January, the bank announced plans to buy back around 10%
of its shares, worth around 3.1 billion euros ($3.70 billion) at
current market prices, following the sale of its U.S. business
for $11.6 billion to PNC  PNC.N  in November.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2K4103
    The lender said this buy-back would not take place before
the closing of the sale of its U.S. unit, expected for mid-2021.
    BBVA also said it would propose to pay a gross cash dividend
of 5.9 euro cents per share in April, in accordance with the 15%
dividend cap set by the European Central Bank against 2020
results.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2IV5J3
    With respect to 2021, BBVA said it would propose a first
interim dividend in cash of up to 35 percent of the consolidated
profit for the first half of 2021, subject to the lifting of
regulatory restrictions.
