Board of Directors

According to the Argentine Business Organizations Law No. 19,550, amended from time to time, the Capital Market Act No. 26,831 and Pampa’s Bylaws, decision-making within the Company is vested in the Board of Directors. The Board consists of ten regular directors and an equal or smaller number of alternate directors as determined by the Shareholders’ Meeting, a percentage of which will be independent according to the independence standards set out in the Argentine National Securities and Exchange Commission (‘CNV’ or Comisión Nacional de Valores) Rules. All of our directors are elected for a term of three years. They may be re-elected indefinitely, except for the restrictions arising from the independence standards set out in the CNV Rules. The expiration and further renewal of terms of office are made on a partial and staggered basis every year, with the election of three directors for two years, and four directors on the third year.
