News for the new season of Shareholders' Meetings, a conversation on cybersecurity and the figures for 2022, star in December in EVoting.

The last month of the year brought with it a series of improvements in EHolders for the new Shareholders’ Meeting season, and showed a positive balance in EVoting’s 2022 figures. In addition, a conversation was held on ethical hacking and cybersecurity.

“IT IS A TRANSPARENT, DEMOCRATIC AND SAFE PROCESS, WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR SHAREHOLDERS”.

FIFCO, a Costa Rican company with more than 100 years of history dedicated to producing and distributing food and beverages, has held three Shareholders’ Meetings with the EHolders platform since 2021.

Isaac Salazar, Legal Manager of the brand, highlighted the great performance of the company and mentioned that the electronic processes provide “greater transparency” and highlighted EVoting’s accompaniment and adaptability in all the processes carried out together. See more here.
