On the same date, the Mail, Parcels and Distribution segment of the Group has cash and cash equivalents for €863 million, invested in bank and postal current accounts, as well as in Italian Government Bonds (BTP) classified as HTCS, hold to collect and sale, with an average duration of 2.6 years and for a total notional amount of €500 million. This liquidity represents the Group's free liquidity generated by the company's self-financing capability, partly attributable to Poste SpA and partly deriving from the centralization of the Group liquidity and from the related cash pooling activity by the parent company.
In December 2016, an additional EIB credit line of €173 million was signed, granted for specific investment projects, currently completely undrawn, whose availability period expires in December 2019.
Furthermore, at 30 June 2018 the Parent Company has short-term uncommitted credit lines of €1,058 million.
