If the Rights are not taken up in full during the first two trading sessions referred to above (i.e., on 27 and 28 February 2017), the last day for the subscription of the New Shares will be 6 March 2017.

 

The New Shares obtained by exercising the Rights will be deposited on the accounts held by the authorized intermediaries members of the centralized management system of Monte Titoli S.p.A. at the end of the accounting date of the last Rights exercise day, and will be made available as of the following settlement day.
