ARTICLE THIRTY-TWO REPRESENTATION
All holders of securities entitled to vote may be represented by a proxy holder at the shareholders meeting.
However, under age persons, certified persons, civil companies and commercial companies may be represented by their legal or statutory bodies that, in turn, may be represented by a proxy holder. Spouses are entitled to represent each other.
The board of directors may approve the form of the proxies. They must be deposited at the location indicated in the notice no later than four business days before the meeting. Proxies may also be sent by telecopy at the number indicated in the notice, no later than four business days before the meeting, provided that the executed original of such proxies be handed over to the office of the shareholders meeting at the latest at the beginning of such meeting. Failing that, the company will not acknowledge the powers of the proxy holder.
