2.6. Share price performance and shareholder
remuneration
To avoid disappointing the shareholders who place their
trust in the company, BME remains true to its objective
of maximising the company’s share price in order to
raise the profit to shareholders. In this respect, given the
importance of receiving dividends, BME endeavours to
convey to shareholders the progress made on improving
management efficiency so as to offer them the maxi-
mum value and returns on their investments.
In this respect, despite the ongoing crisis affecting the
financial markets in 2012, BME is one of the soundest
companies of the IBEX35® and one of the leaders in div-
idend yield of the Spanish stock market, earmarking ap-
proximately 98% of profits to shareholder remuneration.
