Verona, 19 December 2019. Cattolica informs that yesterday evening the Members Francesco Brioschi, Massimiliano Cagliero, Giuseppe Lovati Cottini, Società SH64 S.r.l. and Credit Network & Finance SpA, which represent 2.506% of the share capital, have delivered at the Company’s registered office a request to call an Extraordinary Members' Meeting, with the agenda “New rules of corporate governance: modifications, abolitions and additions to articles 1, 22, 23, 24, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 46, 47, 48, 59 of the Articles of Association. Related and consequent resolutions” with an attached explanatory report which states the reasons for both the request and the various amendments.
The Board of Directors, already ordinarily convened for today's date, has limited itself to taking note of the request, will carry out the appropriate verifications and assessments also with the assistance of legal advisors and has therefore reserved itself the right to act in accordance with the law, keeping in any case the Supervisory Authorities informed.
Once these checks will have been carried out, the appropriate disclosure will be made, in contact, where necessary, with the Supervisory Authorities.
It is believed that the next Board meeting, in accordance with the provisions of the law and of the Articles of Association and taking into account the abovementioned requirements, will be held by the first half of January 2020 and, therefore, that the Members' Meeting may be accordingly summoned in accordance with the terms provided by the law.
