MADRID, April 9 Spanish telecoms company Jazztel
will be included in Spain's Ibex-35 index, which tracks
the country's 35 biggest companies, after lender Bankia
was excluded from the index earlier this year.
Jazztel, which specialises in broadband offerings, will take
its place in the index on April 23, the Ibex management
committee said in a statement on Tuesday. Its inclusion was also
confirmed by a notice from the stock exchange.
Bailed-out Bankia dropped out of the Ibex before it was
recapitalised with European rescue funds, in an operation that
practically wiped out shareholders and reduced its free float.
