Poste Italiane (“Poste Italiane”) S.p.A.’s Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting, chaired by Maria Bianca Farina, was held today in Rome.
 
In the Ordinary session, the shareholders first approved Poste Italiane’s financial statements as of 31 December 2017, while the consolidated financial statements were also presented. Acting on the Board of Directors’ proposal, the shareholders then approved a dividend of 0.42 euros per share. The dividend will be paid – before withholding tax, if any – from 20 June 2018, with the ex-dividend date of coupon no. 3 falling on 18 June 2018 and the record date (the date which determines the shareholders who are entitled to the dividend) falling on 19 June 2018.
 
The Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting also:
  • voted in favour of the section of the Remuneration Report that illustrates the remuneration policy for the Directors, the General Manager and the Executives with strategic responsibilities, adopted by the company for financial year 2018, also approving the specific part of the Remuneration Report related to BancoPosta’s Ring-fenced Capital;
  • approved the equity-based Incentive Plan for the material risk takers of the BancoPosta’s Ring-Fenced Capital.
 
Furthermore, the Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting also granted the Board of Directors authorisation for the acquisition and subsequent disposal of up to a maximum of 65.3 million of Poste Italiane’s shares, representing about 5% of the share capital, for a total outlay of up to 500 million euros. The acquisition of the company’s own shares has been authorised for 18 months from today’s shareholders’ meeting resolution. On the other hand, no time limit has been set for the disposal of the shares purchased. The Shareholders’ Meeting also defined, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, purposes, terms and conditions of the acquisition and disposal of the company’s own shares, also identifying the rules for calculating the purchase price, as well as the operational rules concerning the execution of the purchasing transactions.
 
The Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting also resolved, upon proposal of the Board of Statutory Auditors, to pay additional fees to the external auditor for the years 2017-2019, following the entry into force of new accounting principles.
