How to invest in Assaí
Assaí Atacadista’s shares are traded on B3 (erstwhile BM&F Bovespa) under the ticker “ASAI3.” The Company is listed on Novo Mercado, B3’s highest corporate governance segment.
Novo Mercado is a listing segment for trading the shares of companies that voluntarily adopt corporate governance practices in addition to those required by Brazilian law. Listing in this special segment implies the adoption of a series of corporate rules that expand shareholders’ rights, as well as the disclosure of policies and the establishment of monitoring and control structures. Novo Mercado leads companies to the highest standards of corporate governance.
The shares traded are common shares, which guarantee voting rights at company meetings, as well as a share in the Company’s profits.
Stockbrokers act as intermediaries in buying and selling shares between investors on the stock exchange (B3).
A brokerage fee is charged by the stockbroker for the transactions, which could be a fixed amount or a percentage of the transaction.
The Company annually distributes the minimum mandatory dividend of 25 % of net income earned in the previous year. Shareholders receive the amount via credit to their checking account in any financial institution, starting from the established date of payment.
