The entities of the system


Shareholders’ meeting

The Assembly is ordinary and extraordinary. Powers and issues deliberated upon by the ordinary and extraordinary shareholders’ meeting are those envisaged and regulated by law. The quora required for shareholders’ meetings and resolutions is enforced with respect to the deliberations of the assembly during first call and in subsequent convocations.

The Shareholders’ Meeting is convened by means of a notice to be published, in accordance with the law, on the Company’s website and, also by extract, in one of the following newspapers: Il Sole 24 Ore, MF – Milano Finanza, Finanza & Mercati.

The convocation notice contains the information required by the current legislation and may also indicate the date of the potential second call and, in the case of the extraordinary Shareholders’ Meetings, third call.

The identification and verification to participation and intervention in the meeting is corroborated by the communication to the Company, made by the intermediary on the basis of the results pertinent to the end of the accounting day of the seventh open market day preceding the date set for the meeting (“record date“), and any changes subsequent to this deadline are deemed to be irrelevant for the purposes of identifying and verifying the right to vote. The communication must be received by the Company by the end of the third open market day preceding the date set for the shareholders’ meeting or after the deadlines indicated provided that the meeting is in progress.
