Proxy granted to the proxy holder designated by the Company
A proxy may also be granted to Computershare S.p.A., with registered offices at 19 Via Lorenzo Mascheroni, Milan, the representative designated for that purpose by the Company in accordance with Art. 135-undecies of Legislative Decree No. 58 of 24th February 1998.
A proxy granted to the designated proxy holder must contain voting instructions and it has effect only for those proposals for which instructions have been granted.
It is underlined that the shares for which a proxy has been granted to the designated proxy holder are calculated for the purpose of determining the proper constitution of the Shareholders’ Meeting. On the other hand, with regard to proposals for which no voting instructions have been given, the shares are not considered in calculating the majority and the percentage of capital required for the resolutions to be approved.
The grant of a proxy to the designated proxy holder is free of charge for the shareholder, except possibly those for mailing the proxy itself.
No proxies may be granted to Computershare S.p.A., except in its capacity as a designated proxy holder by means of the procedures indicated in Art. 135-undecies of Legislative Decree No. 58 of 24th February 1998.
Furthermore, for the purposes of participation and the exercise of voting rights, granting a proxy to the designated proxy holder does not exempt persons entitled from the obligation to request authorised intermediaries to send a communication to the Company certifying the legitimate entitlement to take part in the Shareholders’ Meeting and to exercise voting rights, in accordance with Art. 83-sexies of Legislative Decree No. 58 of 24th February 1998.
