The Amancio Ortega-founded company international, which includes brands such as Zara and Pull & Bear, closed the day up 2.23%, to €32.15 per share.
Moreover, for the first time since daughter Marta Ortega took over with Óscar García Maceiras as CEO, this made the clothing company worth more than €100 billion on the stock exchange.
