Shareholders' agreements

On May 9th 2016, a Shareholders' agreement (hereinafter “Agreement”) between Finanziaria Sviluppo Utilities S.r.l and other 64 Emilia Public Shareholders of the Company was signed aiming at, among other things, safeguarding unity and stability of direction for IREN S.p.A. (hereinafter "Company").

The "FSU-Emilia Shareholders’ Agreement" includes a veto and vote syndicate with the objective of safeguarding the development of the Company, of its subsidiaries and its activities also through the “loyalty shares scheme”. In particular (i) to determine ways to consult and jointly take some decisions during the Shareholders' meetings; and (ii) to define some limits to the circulation of a certain number of ordinary shares.

Following the business combination between the Company and the Group ACAM, on the 11th of April 2018 the Municipality of La Spezia, 25 Municipalities in the province of La Spezia and Liguria Patrimonio S.r.l. subscribed a share capital increase reserved to the ACAM Shareholders for a total amount of 24,705,700.00. Company’s share capital has therefore increased from 1,276,225,677.00 euro to 1,300,931,377 euro.

Taking effect from 8th May 2018 the Municipality of La Spezia and 25 other Municipalities in the province of La Spezia joined the Agreement allotting all the shares held to the voting and block syndicate. As a results, in the light of the above changes, the number of participants in the Shareholders’ agreements has increased from 65 to 91.

On May 9, 2016 a further Shareholders’ agreement (“Sub-Agreement”) among 64 Public Emilia Shareholders was signed having as object all the shares owned by the members. The objectives of the Shareholders’ agreements are to (ì) ensure the unity of conduct and rules on the decisions that will have to be taken by the members of the Shareholders' agreement, compliant with the main Agreement; (ii) give a pre-emptive right in case of disposal of stakes of the Company not included in the "Sindacato di blocco" in favor of the members of the Shareholders' agreement; (iii) give to the Municipality of Reggio Emilia an irrevocable mandate to exercise the rights deriving from the Shareholders' agreement on behalf of the members of the latter.

Both the Agreement and the Sub-agreement will last three years, starting from 9th May 2016 and it will by renewed by tacit agreement, except cancellation, for additional two years.

On 27 July 2018 the deed of partial asymmetric non-proportional demerger of the Financial Accountant Sviluppo Utilities S.r.l. took effect, pursuant to which (demerger) fifty percent of the shareholders' equity of the FSU was assigned to the beneficiary Finanziaria Città di Torino Holding S.p.A.

The demerger deed therefore determined a change in the number of shares transferred to the Agreement by Finanziaria Sviluppo Utilities, as well as the change in the number of Adherents who pass from 91 to 92.

As of today's date, the Company's share capital is represented by no. 1,300,931,377 ordinary shares conferring, in total, no. 1,973,446,375 voting rights.
