1 Renamed, in the course of the transaction, Cattolica Immobiliare.
2 Note that the share capital of the company being split-up is wholly owned by Cattolica Assicurazioni and, therefore, the Procedure for the handling of related party transactions - approved by the Board of Directors of Cattolica on November 29th, 2010 - does not apply with reference to the approval of the transaction at issue, in that this Procedure contemplates, among other things, the exclusion of infragroup transactions (as in this case) provided that in the companies involved there are no significant interests of other related parties. This transaction is of minor importance in accordance with CONSOB Regulation no. 17221 of March 12th, 2011.
