It is not necessary for shareholders to make known the purpose of their acquisition and their intention regarding control of the company. The only obligation a shareholder has in this regard is to disclose its ownership of more than 10% of the capital with right to vote in the case of publicly listed companies to the Central Bank of Uruguay and the stock exchange where the company is listed, within ten working days of obtaining such right.
