The president of the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV), Rodrigo Buenaventura, indicated this Thursday that “there is no new information” about Grifols after the stock market supervisor published a report on “relevant deficiencies” on March 21. in the annual accounts of the blood products firm, although the supervisor, as he pointed out then, did not consider its reformulation necessary.

When asked by journalists at the end of the Cesga congress held on the Acciona campus, Buenaventura stressed that “the company is still within the deadline to be able to provide the information”, since the CNMV urged the company to publish, within a period of fifteen business days – that is, until mid-April if the Easter holidays are taken into account -, a detail of the Ebitda and the net financial debts.

Specifically, the CNMV request made reference to the years 2022 and 2023 and to those most relevant entities where there are non-controlled holdings, so that an investor can calculate the leverage ratio considering, or excluding, Ebitda and debt. which corresponds to the participation in their dependents.

The CNMV also asked Grifols to publicly detail within 15 business days the commitments it will assume to adapt the use of alternative performance measures (APM) in the next financial information reports.

On the other hand, Buenaventura has vindicated the work of the public body in preparing the report on Grifols: “We made a very detailed and exhaustive communication on these issues.”

The organization then assured, on March 21, that it would continue working on the Grifols issue with the “greatest speed” and that it would try to provide “maximum transparency” at the conclusion of its actions, if these lead to sanctioning measures in the terms permitted by applicable regulations.

Thus, the supervisor pointed out at that time that the sanction is not “the priority at this moment”, since the CNMV has its focus on “the clarification of the financial information available to investors”, given the social and financial attention generated market.
