Madrid, 17 March de 2016 For the past seven years, in addition to the hard copy and pdf
formats of its annual report, Santander has been providing an online, browsable version
too, affording an interactive and pleasant way to discover the Group strategy and
financial results. On this occasion, the online report centres on initiatives started up over
the past year to support cultural and commercial transformation, to strengthen corporate
governance and capital, and highlight how the Bank is meeting all of its targets, helping
people and businesses prosper in a simple, personal and fair way. It is accessible from any
device, whether a mobile, tablet or computer.
New this year, a section has been included on Prosper stories, a space with videos where
several characters (employees, customers, shareholders and beneficiaries of Group
grants) tell their story in first person and explain how they have felt supported by the
Bank. Real experiences, such as those involving Jigar Thakkar (employee), Javier Lapeña
and Eugenio Navarrete (customers), Josep Rosàs (shareholder), and Miguel Ruiz and
Emily Brooke (beneficiaries of the Bank's grants), show how the Bank is helping people
and businesses prosper every day.
The new section Banco Santander Highlights 2015 explains —using a timeline with images,
copy and videos— the main events at the Bank during the year.
Besides the new items, this is the main content of the Online Report 2015:

business and strengthen our base capital organically. All of this means we are
better off than expected in our strategic plan”.
