[i]“In 1997, GEM (Grupo Economico Maldonado)was formally created. It consisted of INVEGA, INLACA, Seguros La Previsora, WALCO and real estate. In June the family held its first formalFamily Councilmeeting with the participation of 4 brothers, Alexander in representation of his mother, Milagros and our advisor and secretary of the meeting, Alberto Quintana. Marcos was the chairman of the Family Council until 2009. It has been meeting monthly ever since. (In March 2016 we shall celebrate meeting 203.) In November the Telos Group of Wharton went to Caracas and met with the family. My uncles organized it and all participated, expect for Milagros that was represented by Alexander, as well as my cousins from all family branches. I was living in Tokyo at the time so I did not participate.”
