The Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Enel S.p.A. (“Enel” or the “Company”), chaired by Michele Crisostomo, was held today in Rome.
First of all, Enel’s financial statements at December 31st, 2022 were approved, while the consolidated financial statements and the consolidated non-financial statement of the Enel Group, both referred to the same financial year, were presented.
Acting on a proposal of the Board of Directors, the Shareholders’ Meeting also approved an overall dividend of 0.40 euros per share and the distribution of 0.20 euros per share as the balance of the dividend, following the interim dividend of 0.20 euros per share already paid in January 2023 (pursuant to the relevant legislation, the dividend was not distributed to the 7,153,795 treasury shares held by the Company at the “record date”, i.e. the date of entitlement for the dividend payment, of January 24th, 2023). The balance of the dividend will be paid – net of the treasury shares that will be held by Enel at the “record date” indicated here below and before withholding tax, if any – from July 26th, 2023, with the ex-dividend date of coupon no. 38 falling on July 24th, 2023 and the “record date” falling on July 25th, 2023.
Enel’s Shareholders’ Meeting also renewed the authorization to the Company’s Board of Directors for the acquisition and subsequent disposal of treasury shares up to a maximum of 500 million Enel shares, representing around 4.92% of the Company’s share capital, for a total outlay of up to 2 billion euros, upon revocation of the previous similar authorization granted by the ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting held on May 19th, 2022. The acquisition of the Company’s treasury shares has been authorized for 18 months from today’s Shareholders’ Meeting resolution; conversely, no time limit has been set for the disposal of the treasury shares purchased. The Shareholders’ Meeting also defined, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, purposes, terms and conditions of the acquisition and disposal of the Company’s treasury shares, specifically identifying the rules for calculating the purchase price, as well as the operational rules concerning the execution of the purchasing transactions.
The Shareholders’ Meeting also appointed the new Board of Directors, whose term will expire with the approval of the financial statements for 2025. The new Board is composed of:
