The figure for the period includes New Orders totalling EUR 441 million, mainly referring to Lot 5 of the Sibiu-Pitesti Motorway in Romania.

It should be noted that the Consolidated Management Figures and the above-mentioned information are drawn from unaudited management figures and prepared by the Company for the exclusive purpose of providing the Board of Directors an indication regarding the development of activities. Said information could vary, even significantly, on the outcome of the Independent Auditors’ activities, as well as of adjustments that may prove necessary for final approval by the Board of Directors.

It is planned that the Board of Directors called to approve the Interim Financial Report at 30 June 2020 will meet in September 2020.

Updates on performance of Composition

As already announced by the Company, the Court of Rome finally approved Astaldi’s Composition with creditors on a going concern basis with an approval decree issued on 17 July 2020. The approval decree is not subject to claims and hence can be taken as irrevocable and with immediate effect.

It is recalled that, in the assumption of the Composition approval, on 24 May 2020 the Board of Directors established the Liquidation Perimeter and approved the assignment to Mr. Claudio Sforza, who will act as Representative of the Liquidation Perimeter in the interest of Unsecured Creditors; said assignment was signed and made effective. Furthermore, it is recalled that the net income resulting from the liquidation of the assets segregated in the Liquidation Perimeter shall be used to satisfy Unsecured Creditors, according to the terms and conditions provided for in the Composition.

The Company also recalls that the General and Extraordinary General Shareholders’ Meeting has been called for 31 July 2020 to approve the 2018 and 2019 Financial Statements and to follow up on activities related to the Composition. The notice calling the Shareholders’ Meeting and the Reports detailing the items on the agenda, together with the Annual Financial Reports, Annual Reports on Corporate Governance and Ownership Structure and the Report on Remuneration Policy and Fees Paid for 2018 and 2019 have been made available on the website www.astaldi.com (Governance–Shareholders/Bondholders Meetings), in accordance with the terms and procedures provided for by law.

Pursuant to article 83-sexies of the Consolidated Finance Act (TUF), participation and voting in the Shareholders’ Meeting may take place only through the Appointed Representative, i.e. Computershare S.p.A., whom holders of voting rights may grant proxy to, in accordance with the terms and procedures detailed in the notice of call which should be referred to.
