Cenyt Case

BBVA’s priority, set by the Board of Directors, is to fully cooperate with the judicial authorities in clarifying the facts. The Spanish High Court's investigation remains underway. Justice has its own deadlines and it’s important to let the courts do their work, and not make parallel judgments. In this phase of the proceedings, being declared as an investigated party does not imply that a formal accusation for any crime has been made. On the other hand, BBVA pleads that the entity bears no responsibility for the facts under investigation. In the future, BBVA will continue to act with full determination and diligence under the direct leadership of the Board of Directors, whose members have no connection whatsoever with the case. Until now, this case has not had a relevant impact on the bank’s business, on its investors or on the stock performance. Additionally, BBVA’s reputation remained stable in 2019 and improved in 2020.
