Enel officials claim that now they can offer dividends worth more than 615 million euro to shareholders – including the Romanian state and Fondul Proprietatea, as “the context created by the new regulatory framework, which defines a minimum level of investment, as well as the good current financial position companies, as a result of a sound and prudent management policy” allow it, according to a response sent at the request energynomics.ro.
“The General Meetings of the Shareholders of E-Distributie Banat, E-Distributie Dobrogea and E-Distributie Muntenia recently approved the granting of dividends amounting to 2,955 billion lei, from the result reported from previous years.
