FINMECCANICA: SHAREHOLDERS’ MEETING APPROVES THE CHANGE OF THE COMPANY’S NAME
Today’s Shareholders’ Meeting resolved to approve in Extraordinary session, with favourable votes equal to around 99.74% of the capital represented at the Meeting, the proposed amendment of the art.1 of the By-laws providing to adopt, until 31 December 2016, the Company’s name “Leonardo-Finmeccanica-Società per azioni” (abbreviated form “Leonardo S.p.a.” or “Finmeccanica S.p.a. “) and to adopt the company name “Leonardo – Società per azioni” (abbreviated form “Leonardo S.p.a.”) with effect from 1 January 2017.
The decision to put, until 31 December 2016, the new name (Leonardo) before the current name (Finmeccanica) is aimed at granting the Company a suitable time frame to ensure the required continuity mainly in relationships with foreign countries.
Please note that the new name will be effective after the inclusion of the new By-laws in the “Register of Companies” in Rome, which will be promptly disclosed to the market.
