Annual data

Methodological note

Capital increased by mercantile companies is a variable whose monthly data are extremely variable, but they are a useful indicator which is strongly linked to the economic situation and the expectations of economic agents.

These statistics are drawn up using information provided every month by the Central Mercantile Register about the number of mercantile companies that have increased their capital and the value of this increase. This value is calculated using the nominal value stated in the capital increase instrument.

These are the data provided by the provincial mercantile registries for their subsequent publication in the Official Gazette of the Mercantile Registry (BORME).
