November 17, 2016 – Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B), the global company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sector, has received approval from the local regulatory agency with regard to the request for the dismissal of starting preventive bankruptcy proceedings that had taken place in the month of May. In so doing, Abengoa in Peru is currently prepared to continue with activity in a country where they have been present, uninterruptedly, for over 20 years.

This marks a further step that forms part of the process in which the company is immersed and that will reach another milestone on November 22, when the Extraordinary Meeting of Shareholders will be held. Here, the new shareholder and financial structure of the company will be shaped.
