In a statement sent to the CMVM, the energy company also detailed that the payment of dividends will be “made by crediting the account with the financial intermediary in which the shares held by each shareholder are registered, being the paying agent Santander Totta bank”.

EDP's profit fell 18% in 2021, to €657 million. Despite the decrease in income, the management led by Miguel Stilwell d’Andrade decided to keep the dividend and distribute more than €750 million to shareholders, €100 million more than the profits it made.
