The repurchases of Ordinary Shares will be carried out in compliance with provisions set forth in article 2357 of the Italian Civil Code within the limits of retained earnings and available reserves as recorded in the financial statements of the Company.
The resolutions under sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 above require the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of Ordinary Shares entitled to vote at the meeting.
