Internal regulations for the management and divulgation of information and documents to outsiders

Since February 2000, the Board of Directors approved special rules for the internal management and handling of confidential information, which also contain the procedures for the external circulation of documents and information concerning the Company and the Group, with particular reference to inside information. Such rules were updated several times, and finally overall recast in September 2018 in compliance with the new market abuse discipline introduced at European and Italian level. The rules are aimed at keeping confidential information secret, while at the same time ensuring that the information regarding the Company and the Group made available to the market is correct, complete, adequate, timely, and non-selective.
The rules also set forth specific procedures to be followed when circulating information regarding the Company and the Group outside the Group - with particular emphasis on communication to the market of inside information and financial information - and carefully regulate the ways in which Company and Group representatives enter into contact with the press and other mass media, or financial analysts and institutional investors.
