Acea SpA (“ACEA”) announces that, as a result of the new rules and regulations introduced by CONSOB Resolution 19970 of 26 October 2016, the Company intends to voluntarily approve and publish interim financial reports, using the same basis of preparation applied in the interim report for the nine months ended 30 September 2016. This will mean that we continue to be in line with international industry best practices and ensure the maximum transparency of our reporting to the market. These interim financial reports will contain the following information:
Amounts in the income statement will be compared with those for the same period of the previous year, whilst those in the statement of financial position will be compared with amounts at 31 December of the previous year and, where significant, with amounts at the end of the same period of the previous year.
The information will be published on the Company’s website in the form of:
· a press release
· an interim financial report
· a results presentation.
All the documents will be made available in Italian and English by the second working day following their approval.
In light of the above, ACEA announces the dates on which the Board of Directors is expected to examine the Company’s financial results during 2017:
