In particular, the Board of Directors meeting resolved, once the request has been made to the Bank of Italy and the necessary authorizations received to:
- submit to the Poste Italiane Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting a proposal to remove the BancoPosta's Ring-Fenced Capital constraints on the assets and activities of the e-payments and payment services business unit, which will form part of a transfer in kind to PosteMobile;
- set up, within PosteMobile a patrimony of dedicated assets – including the said business unit – destined for e-payments and payment services, with which PosteMobile can operate as an Electronic Money Institution (EMI), meanwhile continuing to operate as a virtual mobile operator.
The constitution of an intermediary specialized in mobile and digital payments will enable the company to more effectively pursue development goals in the segment and reinforce the service model for retail clients, businesses and the Public Administration.
