Verona, 24 July 2020. Cattolica informs that 34 Members (equal to 0.18% of the total Members at 13 July 2020) who declare possession of 54,418 shares (equal to 0.03% of the total outstanding shares), have notified to the Company the request presented to the Court of Venice for the cancellation of the resolution taken by the extraordinary General Meeting held on 27 June concerning the proxy to the Board of Directors for a capital increase up to euro 500 million with limited option rights.
The judge appointed by the Court, Mrs. Lina Tosi, with today's ruling, summoned the parties for the hearing of 17 August 2020. The Company immediately submitted such request to its lawyers, Professors Mario Cera, Matteo Rescigno and Matteo De Poli, for the appropriate defence, considering the Members’ requests completely unfounded and daring, as well as representing a very limited number in terms of both of shares and percentage of the social base. On this occasion, the Company confirms that the resolution contested by these Members was authorised by IVASS and regularly filed in the Company Register.
