Inside information

Today’s ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Banca IFIS S.p.A., chaired by Sebastien Egon Fürstenberg, approved:

• the Financial Statements for the year 2013, whose results were published on 6 March 2014;

• the distribution of a 0,57 Euro dividend per share for every ordinary share with detachment of coupon (no. 17) on 28 April 2014 [1]. The dividend will become payable on 02 May 2014. It will be paid through the authorised intermediaries with which the shares are registered in the Monte Titoli system;

• the contents of Section I of the Remuneration Report – for the purposes of adjusting Banca IFIS banking Group’s remuneration policy for 2014 – and the remuneration plan based on stock grants for some corporate figures;

• authorised once again the purchase and sale of treasury shares – after revocation of prior resolution – for an amount not exceeding 40 million Euro for up to 18 months from the resolution date. Purchases can be made also in tranches up to an amount not exceeding 1/5 of the share capital at a price not lower than 4 Euro and not exceeding 25 Euro per share. Such transactions can be carried out to support regular trading, avoid that price movements are not in line with market trends, support market liquidity and provide the Bank with the operating and strategic flexibility necessary to sell treasury shares as a consideration for any extraordinary transaction or variable remuneration. Sale of all or part of treasury shares held by the Bank shall take place (also in tranches) at a price not lower than 80% than the stock’s previous day closing price [2];

• the proposal of the Board of Statutory Auditors to confer the engagement for the audit of the Separate and Consolidated Financial Statements for the 9-year period from 2014 to 2022 and for any additional duties strictly connected to the audit activity to Reconta Ernst & Young S.p.A.
