Given this most unusual time we are experiencing, we would like to provide information on some of the preventive measures we have adopted, which include reducing to a minimum the number of people in our offices while continuing to offer a full range of services.
In that respect and as from 16 March, we have put in motion a regime of telecommuting, and have cancelled all face-to-face meetings and visits to real estate properties. From now on and until further notice we will be communicating via conference calls and/or videoconferencing.
These restrictions in no way handicap our capacity to continue to handle all matters still in hand. Indeed, Vanguard Properties has set conditions in place to continue to manage its projects and sell its property developments.
It is our intention to retain these measures at least until the end of March. This is an attitude we consider reflects our social responsibility as we seek to defend the health of all concerned, hoping to contain this outbreak, in order to ensure our rapid return to the normal rhythm of our days.
I would like to thank you all, I hope to see you very soon and... stay home!
José Cardoso Botelho
