The Shareholders' Meeting meets at least once a year. The Board of Directors endeavours to ensure that shareholders are adequately informed so that they can contribute to decisions in an informed manner. The Shareholders' Meeting has the powers, in ordinary session, to approve the financial statements, appoint and dismiss Directors and Statutory Auditors, determine remuneration, and pass resolutions on matters within its remit in accordance with law. Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting deliberates on amendments to the articles of incorporation and By-Laws, as well as on all matters within its remit in accordance with law. Our By-Lawsstate that the Board of Directors is vested, within the limits established by law, with all the broadest powers of ordinary and extraordinary administration. To ensure the correct functioning of the Shareholders' Meeting, the proceedings of the meeting are regulated not only by the By-Laws but also by a special Regulation, approved by the Shareholders' Meeting in 2013.
