FAILED PUBLICATION OF THE MINORITY SLATES FOR THE BOARD OF AUDITORS

With reference to the slates for the appointment of the Board of Auditors, it should be noted that, pursuant to article 144-octies, par. 2 of Consob Resolution No.11971/1999, upon expiry of the final deadline (30 March 2015) only a slate from the majority shareholder Fininvest S.p.A. was filed.

Therefore, in compliance with the provisions set out in article 144 sexies, par. 5 of Consob Resolution No. 11971/1999, the deadline by which other slates for the appointment of the Board of Auditors may be filed has been extended to 2 April 2015 and the percentage for the filing of the slates has been reduced from 2.5% to 1.25% of the Company’s capital.
